    Iphone 3gs Help?

    Hi all,

    Would really appreciate some help. My hubby has just got the iphone 3gs but he needs to get all his contacts from his old phone to the Iphone. We have tried bluetooth no luck. It wouldnt matter so much if he only had a few contacts but he has over 150+ so apart from manually inputting them is there another easier way. Will rep anyone who can help me.

    Many thanks

    I think he tried this but it didnt work but i think that more to do with our comp its a little knackered to say the least!

    If you don't have outlook get a trial version. ITunes will copy all your numbers to the contacts in outlook when you sync. It's a doddle.

    the iPhone syncs automatically with iTunes everytime you plug in the USB cable.

    no what i am asking his how do i get the contacts from the old sim on to Outlook (which i have)

    Put the sim in the iPhone and go to settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendar -> import sim contacts

    I dont think i have explained properly. the iphone is not unlocked so tho i have not tried it i presume it will not read the old sim with all the contacts .

    get one of these ultrathin overlays ( postage is free),
    dealextreme.com/sea…sim
    copy contacts onto old sim

    then insert sim along with the overlay into the iphone simslot
    the wafer-thin overlay should now allow your to see through the noniphone sim & allow the phone to fully bootup onto any network
    you can then use the iphone as normal ..call , receive, text move contacts around etc
    no need to jailbreak

    Save all contacts to sim on old phone put sim In iPhone go to settings … Save all contacts to sim on old phone put sim In iPhone go to settings click transfer all sim contacts job done



    As above - done this myself when I got mine
