    I believe the iphone does not support uploading contacts from a sim card to the phone. Best way is to sync it through your computer.

    Copy the SIM numbers to the memory of your exiting phone. Then copy the contents of your memory via bluetooth to Address Book (if using a MAC) in your computer. After you put your SIM in the iPhone you use iTunes and sync the particular GROUP to your iPhone.

    100-200 contacts is not that much. You can enter them in a short time... Cheers, CEB

    Most phones will have utilities written for them, that can extract the data from the sim. But it also requires a special data cable in certain instances...
    If your phone has a usb connector, you may be able to just get the software and use a regular usb cable.

    I know that samsung has some software that can do it.

    You can extract your contacts, into a CSV file or something, then import them into Outlook / Mail, then have them synced via iTunes.
    Note that SIM Contacts are very basic... and any export will most likely need a bit of cleanup. It may be easier to clean them up once you import them into your mail client.

    Hope this helps!

    I am certain that if your phone has bluetooth you can extract the contents of your memory. Remember, you must copy the sim contents to your phone memory first and then import via bluetooth. What kind of phone are you migrating from? does your PeeCee has BT? This would certainly makes things easier for you. Cheers, CEB

    Just enter all your contacts using windows "Address Book". You will be able to add multiple numbers and details on a single contact using that program. I did 150 numbers in under 20mins tops. It's also a good thing using that program, because you can export that file to anywhere you want for backup.
