    sim to micro-sim, how to transfer contacts

    Hi guys,
    So I just received a micro-sim card from Fido, the iphone is due tomorrow. My question is that I currently have a HTC touch. How do I get my contacts from that phone to the new micro-sim. My contacts are on both my current sim and also in Gmail. Sorry if it's been asked before, but I'm new to this thing, and I want to make sure I don't lose #'s?
    Thanks

    if all your contacts are on Gmail then just set up your new iPhone to use Google Exchange and it'll pull them from the cloud

    Thanks for the reply....once I get them from google exchange, is there a way to put them on micro-sim?
    I ask as if I ever lost gmail, at least the contacts would be stored somewhere else.

    You can export your contacts from Gmail to store them locally. I don't think there is a way to have the iPhone write to the SIM, there are way too many fields.

    sync contacts from your phone with microsoft outlook then sync microsoft outlook with itunes. I did that going from my 9700 to iphone4

    Its really annoying how few phones have the ability to write to contacts to SIM and how other phones cant recognize multiple numbers on single contacts saved on SIMs when importing.

    For those that do like this feature. Sony Ericsson phones have this ability as far as the non smartphones that I have used is concerned. Multiple phone numbers, emails, birthdays and other info u can save on contacts. saved to sim then Android can grab all of those contacts and the phone numbers and emails still remain attached to a single contact unlike many phones out there that will simply just give you new individual contacts of the same name each with only a single number.
