changing from phone memory to sim card memory on 6120 classic to transfer contact list to new phone

hello

i got a new phone and want to transfer all my contacts from my current 6120 classic to the new phone but i can't find this option on the 6120 anywhere!!!  The memory option in the settings only gives me phone memory... is there anyway i can transfer them on to my sim card?  much appreciated!!!

Re: changing from phone memory to sim card memory on 6120 classic to transfer contact list to new ph

i think it might be under contacts 

 

 

try to select all contacts/mark all and you might have to mark one, then come back and it will give you an option to mark all or several, go to options again if you manage to mark your contacts and see if there is an option to save contacts to sim card.

 

you can also try to use the switch application it could be in settings - connectivity data transfer options tho i am not exactly sure. now this will only work if you have two newer nokia phones that have this capability

 

what phone to what phone do you want to switch ? i know 6120 is your current phone but the new one ?

Hi,

Thanks for the solution though I did not find this so easy.... I just end up with an empty "Copying" progress bar which never goes anywhere. It's the same with just one contact or all at once. Any ideas?

 

Thanks

1. Go to menu and select contacts

2. Select options

3. Scroll down to Mark/Unmark

4. Select Mark all

5. Go back into options

6. Go down to copy and then select to memory card

7. Click Yes when asked to remove existing contacts from memory card

 

This seemed to work for me.
