How to save contacts on SIM card Lumia 800

As in subject, how can I save contacts (phone numbers) on SIM card in Lumia 800. Usually mobile phone provides a selection and one can save contacts either on SIM card or in phone memory.

Unfortunately, this is not possible. You may only import your SIM contacts to the phone, but you cannot do the opposite: from phone to SIM card. All contacts will be saved to your Windows account.

Why?

What Windows needs my contacts for? Am I followed by KGB or something? These are my contacts not MS and I want them send on my SIM card. I do not understand that.

Windows doesn't need your contacts. Your contacts are saved to your Windows account for safe storage. This is clearly stated when you first set-up your phone and created your Windows account.
