Transfer contacts from sim to micro sim

Hi, I've just swapped my Virgin sim for a micro sim and set up my new phone. I thought the contacts saved to my old sim would be on the new micro sim but they aren't. Can anyone tell me how to transfer from one sim to the other? Thanks

Re: Transfer contacts from sim to micro sim

If you are swapping SIMS then the contacts cannot be copied over as there is no physical way of the phone to do this.

There is software to do this, but I would say the easiest way is to reinsert the old sim and select "copy to phone" for the contacts, then you can reverse this with the new sim.

Re: Transfer contacts from sim to micro sim

Thanks for your reply Andy. I thought that keeping the same number but changing to a micro sim would transfer the contacts automatically because I was still with Virgin. Anyway, I gave up and have just re-entered them all one by one onto my new sim and phone. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
