Can you transfer non-SIM-card numbers to a new mobile phone?

Numbers stored in the phone's memory, that is? Don't tell me I have to type them all in again .....

I think you can take the old sim to a shop (car phone warehouse?) and they can transfer them all for you. Not sure how much they charge though, might be free if you are buying a new phone from them.

Just realised you said numbers stored in the phones memory. Maybe they could still do that anyway?

I did - I transferred the ones on my old SIM card to my new phone, then deleted the ones from the old SIM, then put it back in my old phone and copied the numbers from the phone to the SIM. Then I put that back in my new phone and copied the numbers there (it had a bigger memory).

If that doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll try to word it better!

Wow hunkermunker, that sounds very clever! How do you transfer from SIM card to phone memory and vice versa?

orange charge 2.99 for storing your numbers onto something or other, in case you ever change phones or get it stolen etc. Then they will transfer them to the phone you want.

OK, I've put my SIM in my new phone and moved all the no's on it to the new phone's memory. I've now put the SIM back in my old phone (Nokia 3330), but can't work out how to get the no's still in that phone's memory onto the SIM card. Maybe the old phone can't do it?

I think you view the number, bring up the options, one of which is copy. You then get the option to copy it to SIM or phone. Min'es not the same phone as yors at all though but it's worked on the last 2 phones I've had.
