E5 copy Sim to Phone

Hi, i have an E5, i have tryed for hours and i cannot find a way to o copy/transfer the Sim memory contacts to Phone memory , in the manual it says that the first time you open the phone it asks if you want to import but the guy at the store open it first time and probably he choose not to import .

Re: E5 copy Sim to Phone

I haven't used an E5, but if it is anything like similar recent S60 phones, you should be able to go to to Contacts then select Options>Settings and set 'Contacts to display' to just SIM memory.

 

Then select Options>Mark/unmark>Mark all, then select Options>Copy>Phone memory.

 

Once done, go back to Options>Settings>Contacts to display and select Phone memory again. You'll probably also have to set 'Default saving memory' back to 'Phone memory'.

 

 

Some phones habve a simpler option: Options>SIM numbers>Copy all to phone.

Re: E5 copy Sim to Phone

Thank You, it is solved, i tryed for hours i cannot belive i did not see that mark all options and then when i sellect copy it will copy all to telephone.

 It was important because when i tryed to make the eight contacts for quick call,only using the 2-9 from the keyboard the phone says that that it must copy them to the phone memory for being able to use that quick call option, but the problem was that after copying them to the phone, they were doubles,so when one of them was calling me, the phone did not show the identity,only the number because in the contacts list they apperead two times,one from sim and the second from the phone memory....anyway problem soved,thank you.
