    Default Transfering SIM contacts to the iPhone?

    Curious if there's any software out there for either the computer or iPhone that allows you to transfer your contacts off your SIM card to the iPhone? There is absolutely no way I am going to type out 300+ contacts by hand, haha... but then again, maybe I don't have a choice.

    there are different ways - the best would be if you have any kind of cell phone that synchronises with outlook e.g. nokia. Nokia has a software called nokia suite that let u do that!

    Different method: sim card reader -> export the data to your computer -> import it in outlook

    I only have a Samsung D900 which doesn't sync with outlook unfortunately. That and I'm using a Macbook Pro. Hm..

    every phone shop can extract the contacts of the sim card for you!

    I'd just ring up a friend.. it's a fairly simple process. But besides that, maybe just manual re-entry?

    Another option is those $5 SIM readers on eBay..

    Cheers

    Well, what I was really hoping to do was find a way to export my SIM contacts to an external file and import that into Address Book on OSX. Guess there's no way for the iPhone to read off the SIM card though. Hell, for $599 you'd think it could print money. Guess not. ;P

    But even with that file, often the formats aren't the way you want them.

    Mac OS X's Address Book has many more fields than most phones, so there's a lot more info you can put in. You can also update any entries that have become outdated.

    I'd just put the phone in front of your monitor and retype them into Address Book.

    Hey, at least you don't have to use T9 to do it!
