    No what i mean is export from iphone go to the simcard not import from simcard go to the iphone.Because when i add a new contact it's only can save on the iphone but not save on the simcard some other phone when you add a new contact you can save it on the simcard.Thanks

    Anyone know how to do this? I know you could use iSim on 1.1.4 but there doesn't seem to be anything similar for current firmware.

    To be clear, we want to save the contacts FROM the iPhone TO the SIM card.

    i have been trying to do the same but till now i have been unable to. if u sync with outlook and if your outlook doesnt have the same contacts then it doesnt work. someone needs to make an app like iSim again.

    The iPhone by itself can't write contacts to the SIM card, only read them.

    Did a quick online search, try this shareware app: (change hxxp to http)

    Please read before you post!!!

    Did anyone manage to find a solution, I want to transfer my iPhone contacts to the sim so I can use it with my very cheap LG which doesn't sync with Outlook.

    I tried using that and it didn't work very well...

    I ended up just syncing all of my contacts with Address Book. It's easier to just back up your iPhone though. Saves all of your contacts.
