What is the best way you have found to transfer contacts from

one sim to another sim on different networks
As pet tittle
Do you import contacts from sim to phone > export to new sim
or use the phones software suite ?Huh
Or have you found a better way ?Huh

If they're both Android phones then you can use MyPhoneExplorer.
Worked well for me to copy all my contacts and diary entries from my phone to tablet.

I am pretty sure Android does this automatically as long as you sign in on both devices using the same account http://www.google.co.uk/contacts

Re: What is the best way you have found to transfer contacts from

you used to have to switch sync on for each google component. might be worth checking in the settings.

I managed to complete the task via BlueTooth
Steps I took
1. paired both phones
2. Tap contacts / phone book
3. Tap the options button > Send all contacts . BlueTooth
4. Accept vcard on new sim / phone
Job done
Google is pants anyhow Sad
