Re: Mobile phone upgrade questions

I remember the machines a few years back but not much use for them anymore, I guess......?

No I'm afraid not.

If you use gmail then you can use that to transfer contacts.

Edit : which phone are you going to choose so we can suggest methods.

Going from the S3 to the S5. Have my contacts backed up on gmail at the moment, so guess i just sync and that will get them on my phone. Not sure from there how to get them on my SIM?

Google will sync your contacts to the new phone fine.

Re: Mobile phone upgrade questions

Also, there is an option in the contacts app settings menu to "move contacts to", one of the choices is sim card.

Re: Mobile phone upgrade questions

Not unless you want to use the same sim in a non connected phone.
The amount of space you have to store contact info is also very limited on a sim card so it will cut off half your contact names - PITA to have them on a sim card these days.

Re: Mobile phone upgrade questions

Just been told by a mate who works for o2 that i may not need a new SIM, as alot of 3g SIMs also are configered to work on 4g

 

Hope so, saves hassle of a SIM swap

Re: Mobile phone upgrade questions

All O2 sims are now 4G. The sim swap is easy enough. Mine was changed a couple of weeks ago. I took it instore and they did it for me Smiley Wink
