Transferring BES server adresses to SIM card

Is there a simple way for me to put my Blackberry (Frequent Contacts) address list (the one that snycs with my Groupwise) onto the SIM card in my phone ? I was thinking if the network went down or I changed phones, I could just move the Sim card and everything would be on there (or if I wanted to put the list into my personal phone, I could copy the SIM card to do that)

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As I recall, the only way you can do it is by the “one by one” procedure
described here:
<b>

Click on the contact and then select the blackberry symbol and then option is near the top that says copy to sim phone book… you can only do 1 at a time though.</b>

. And, most important, you can only put the
person’s name and phone number on the sim, no addresses or e-mails. At
least as far as I can recall, e-mails cannot be placed on the SIM.

The reason for this limitation is because the SIM only has so much room and
full contact info would overflow the card’s capacity. As I recall the SIM’s
capacity is about 500k or something like that and it can hold about 500
contacts. Not sure on those numbers, I read it somewhere but have since
forgot what was what.

Bonus Comment: There are mini programs out there, some for free, that let
you manage the info that goes on to a SIM, BUT YOU NEED A SIM CARD
READER [that hooks up to a USB port].

The readers range in price, some as low as $5. The programs range from freeware to about $25.
