Add and transfer contacts

Here's how to copy contacts from the SIM card to your iPhone 5c

Contacts saved on the SIM card can be copied to the phone memory. This can be useful if you change the SIM card, as it saves you keying in all the information again.

Follow these instructions to copy contacts from the SIM card to the phone memory on your Apple iPhone 5c.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Press Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  3. Press Import SIM Contacts
  4. Copy SIM card contacts to the phone

The SIM card contacts are now copied to the phone

Press the Home key to return to standby mode

You also have the option of transfering contacts by using iCloud/Itunes via a backup as well as using our EE stores and Hotmail/Google accounts. For more information on these processes check out the Getting Started with your iPhone Guide.
