How to copy phone numbers to SIM card?

Xperis S issue: Whenever I save a new phone number I am asked if I want to save it to the phone or SIM. I select Phone, but in fact I want my new contacts to also be on the SIM as well, in case I use it in another phone. Most of the old contacts are on the SIM, (this is how I copied them across to the phone in the first place), but how do I copy new individual numbers to the SIM, one at a time? There seems to be no way of doing this, other than copying every single contact, which is hopeless; this just means that all my contacts are repeated twice, & there isn't enough room on the SIM anyway.

Even the way the Contacts are set out is confusing, as it does not show clearly which contacts are on the SIM & which are on the phone - they are just all repeated twice, but I cannot really tell which ones are saved to the SIM. Can anyone advise on this please? Thanks.

Re: How to copy phone numbers to SIM card?

goto contacts and click options(right side of button near by home key) then touch backup contacts and select sim so now mark all or else select which one you want to copy to sim so its like

contacts--->options----->backup contacts----->sim card----->markall or select

P.S. in sim option Replace all contacts delete your old contacts and copy new and other option add contact is just copy the new contact.

Re: How to copy phone numbers to SIM card?

Thank you! When I saw the option 'sim card' I thought it was going to automatically copy everything to the sim, so I was afraid to click on it...! Thanks...
