Actually, you can import contacts from SIM to iPhone with simple steps. Just follow below guide.

iPhone doesn't store contacts on the SIM card. If you want to transfer contacts between iPhones, you can use iCloud to backup or transfer content between devices. When it comes to import contacts from SIM card to iPhone, users will only need three simple steps.

  1. Remove the SIM card from the old phone, and install it on your iPhone.
  2. Your iPhone may need to reactivate. If so, connect to iTunes.
  3. Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Import SIM Contacts.
  4. Wait for the import to complete.
  5. If you swapped SIM cards in step 1, remove the SIM card and replace it with your iPhone SIM card.
  6. Open Contacts and make sure that the contacts imported.


The contact information imported from a SIM card depends on how your previous phone stored information on the SIM card. For more help with importing contacts from a non-Apple phone, check the manufacturer's website, app store, or contact your carrier.After doing this, you will get the contacts in your iPhone. Transferring contacts from SIM card to iPhone is easy to be done when users have a suitable SIM card with iPhone. But if the SIM card cannot be recognized by iPhone, what should the users do to import contacts from SIM card to iPhone?

How do I copy phone book entries to another handset?


1) Copy the contacts onto the SIM on the current handset, place that SIM into the destination phone and either access them from the SIM or copy them onto the new phone.

2) If no SIM then you may need to connect the phone to a PC and copy them using either a s/w program supplied with the phone or downloaded then connect your new phone and import them onto that device.

How do i copy contacts from my sony ericsson xperia x10 phone to my sim


Hi Barbara.

It's actually fairly simple to copy contacts on the x10.

Just access you phone dial pad via your menu
tap "Contacts" above the number pad
Press the bottom Left button (The real button at the bottom of the screen)
Should now pop a menu up with the option to copy contacts.
If not then tap the "More" option and it will be in there.
Now you have the option of copying them to the sim card or memory card.
Tap the relative option. :)

Cannot access SIM contacts or SIM card


If you go into menu and press contacts, options, select sim contents, sim directory and the go back to options and mark/Unmark, then select mark all. Your phone will automatically tick all the numbers on your sim. The last thing is to press options again and copy to contacts.

Let me know how you get on with this but l guess this should fix your problem.

Contacts


Your SIM Card is like a floppy disk, so if you want to permanently add those people from your sim card to your Blackberry - you need to copy from the SIM into the BB Address Book. Otherwise they will be on the SIM Address Book, and you can always go look them up - but they are not saved on the BB itself.

BB: To access your cell phone address book:
  1. Scroll to select the ADDRESS BOOK icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
  2. Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the address book.
  3. Scroll to select the SIM PHONE BOOK and press [Trackwheel] to select.
  4. system should say LOADING SIM PHONE BOOK.
  5. Then if you select the menu - you should have an option to COPY ALL TO ADDRESS BOOK, select YES so it will copy whats on the SIM to the BB Memory..
This will start the download process to read the contacts stored on your SIM card which were copied from your cell phone.
