    I was just playing with my Sidekick and I was in my Adress book which has 103 contact out of a possible 2000. As i was playing around, i clicked menu and it said "Transfer contact from Sim". I thought the contacts and ALL of my data was stored in the sim card, anyway? Now i am really confused. I was counting on the sim card to store my data incase of a fatality to my sidekick! That way, i could grab me a new sidekick, install the same sim and bam, theres all my data, safe and reinstalled, no problem.

    Is it just my sidekick or is theres something i am suppose to do in order to store them to the sim card, that im not aware of???

    Actually Sidekick is everything controlled by server, everything is save on their server anything that is lost on ur Sidekicks for example, forgot to charge the battery and let it run it off all of battery, and basically it wont save in there, its just all lost, once you're connected, everything will be restore back in your Sidekicks...You can always create new tasks and everything in Desktop Interface and all of info will be on Sidekicks as soon you're connect to the tower. Is why you seeing all of saved pictures on your Desktop Interface everything you do on Sidekicks so for Desktop Interface will appears exactly as you did on Sidekicks. Yep I always use it often when Im on PC and do it on there and Im all set to go and go anyplace all of info its on my own Sidekick =)

    No, well that wasnt my question, exactly. Let me try asking in a different way.
    I have about 150 contacts now. ( that question was first asked a while ago ). Now my question is, my contacts are saved on the phone itself, but when i go to save it on the sim ( which is no problem, its very simple ) it saves to the sim ONLY and removes it off of the actual phone. So when i scroll through my contacts, i cant see what i just moved to the sim card. I would like to make it so that my contacts are on the sim card AS WELL as the phone, without having to re type it all into the phone.. Anyone know how? or IF this is possible.

    I'm sorry, if you already saved most of your contacts from other device into your SIM, and into Sidekick you would just go to Menu, Settings, SIM Center, View SIM Card Contacts, while you there, click Menu again, go to Settings, Import SIM contacts.. everything will be import to address book, and uhhh copy one by one per contact into address book, Menu, Copy to Device..... and Menu+N to add new contact and save in SIM Card... Interesting .. I play some of it I could make phone calls right from saved SIM Card.. thats pretty cool I would EVER have to re do on other device like you such as 150 contacts thats LOTS! LOL .... I hope I answer your question...

    Big, thank you SO much! i KNEW there had to be a way to do this!! i think i confused u a bit though. What i was trying to say was, i have all my contacts saved to the sidekick's internal memory NOT the sim card, yet id like to have them stored to the sim card incase anything happens, so i dont loose my contacts.

    Now, say for example, i save ALL my contacts to my sim card, is there a way to have them show up without having to go to address book and then view sim card contacts? I kind of like the fact that sim card contacts are hidden.

    So, when i import all my contacts to my sim card, will they be viewable when i click on my adress book? or will i have to keep having to go to adress book, view, contacts on sim card? ugh, i am SO confusing, i know, im sorry!

    thank you big buck though! =) very helpful! I am giving you rep points =)

    Your welcome, I just want let you know that its really suppose to save all of your address book on Sidekick Server once its all wipe out or do hard reset for any reason, after you signinto the network everything will bring back where it was.. Unlikely cellular phone, but its good thing that we learn how to do it in other way of saving contacts through SIM Card =) Is reason I like coming back here and learn new things and help as possible in our knowledge.

    i didnt know that either, big. So basically, if i loose my sidekick or something happens to it and i need to get another one, all my contacts will be automatically saved on the server, meaning, i wont have to retype all 150 contacts over again? id like that idea alot only because ive got everyones adresses, birthdays, EVERYTHING saved on there. my sidekick is my life!
