    Question Transfer contacts to MicroSim from non-iPhone

    Like the thread title suggests, I need to get my contacts transferred off of my standard Sim. I'm aware that iTunes is the key, but that's where I hit a wall. I found an article here -> Clicky , but I don't have Outlook. Any other options guys?

    I think you have two options (not having Outlook):

    Option 1
    1. Transfer the contacts from the standard sim to the non-iPhone
    2. Use a microsim adapter to put your microsim in the phone and transfer the contacts to it
    3. Drop the microsim into the new iPhone 4 and transfer the contacts to the iPhone

    Option 2
    1. Cut the standard sim to the microsim size
    2. Drop it into the iPhone and transfer the contacts
    3. Put the microsim back into the iPhone

    Optional Option
    1. Buy Outlook

    The first time i connect my phone with iTunes, ask me with what i want to
    sync my contacts and i choose windows contacts. Also, all my contacts are in
    one folder. But, MaX write a guide how to copy all your contacts( how to extract
    from your iphone) with winscp!

    Yeah this was my backup option (I've already got an old cingular Sim ready for the sacrifice ) if there was no other way to go about it.

    As for Outlook.....I'm tired of putting crappy windows products on my pc, so many compatibility issues, so much life wasted....

    Thanks guys!
