[C5] Contacts from SIM to phone memory - how to?

[ Edited ]

Hi there!

I've got a little problem with copying my contacts from SIM to the phone memory. In the manual it is written that when I turn on my phone for the first time, it would ask me if I want to copy my contacts but I didn't have any information about that kind of stuff. So, my question is, how to copy them now? Because it's a bit annoying to have contacts like fe. Dad/M :/ Any ideas?

Open Contacts>options>settings>contacts to display>select "Sim" only.

Now open Contacts>options>mark/unmark>mark all>options>copy>phone memory.
They are now copied to phone memory, so you can switch to phone memory again Contacts>options>settings> contacts to display>this time select "Phone memory" only.

If  i have helped at all a click on the white star below would be nice thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion.  It works great, but I'm left with a full SIM card.  I need to delete the conacts from the card so I can copy more across from my old Ericcson. 

Any suggestions on deleting from a SIM card?
