    Good question. The quick and dirty answer is that you can't. The iPhone doesn't know how to read this information on the SIM card as other Phone manufacturer's phones do, so there's no way of teaching the iPhone to retrieve this data. I wish there was though, for unlocking reason.....

    The workaround is as follows if you're a Mac User and your phone supports bluetooth -- Copy all of your contacts from your SIM card back to your phone memory and ensure that your phone is using your phone memory for storage.

    Sync your phone to your Mac via bluetooth and then run iSync to copy your phone contacts/numbers/etc into the mac's contact application. From there, simply sync your iPhone via iTunes after activating the necessary options in the iPhone configurator.

    For PCs, the process is essentially same assuming that your PC has bluetooth but uses different utilities for Syncing and populates your contacts into outlook/outlook express or equiv which you can export to your iPhone via iTunes after changing the iTunes sync params..

    Good luck....
