Go to Contacts>options>settings>contacts to display>check only "Sim memory"

Now all contacts on sim will be shown, Go to Options>Mark/unmark>mark all>options>copy>phone memory.

Your all contacts are now copied to Phone memory (so you can delete them from Sim if u want) and after this change (Contacts>options>settings>contacts to display>check only "Sim memory") to "phone memory"

Re: How to copy contacts from SIM to Phone Memory in Nokia 5230

After I had given my 5230 at the Nokia care in Abu Dhabi for checking out a problem on why the contacts were being searched for the last name when the setting in the phone was to display the first name. They could not answer me why, but they wiped clean all my address book. I then had to copy any address that were in the SIM to the phone memory. In doing so all the names in the SIM were copied to last name field of the phone contacts. Many of the names are infact first names. I want this corrected globally. Therefore I want to export the phone contacts to a .csv (can be opened and edited using MS Excel). I also want to add other address that are not in the SIM to this .csv and then import them back to Ovi and then sync it to the phone.

Can you please help me with this task?
