Help! I've been trying to help my non-techno husband to transfer his phonebook from one phone to the other. Now I'm losing patience too as it would have been quicker to type them all in again!! We've installed the phone tools for each phone onto the computer but have not been able to do anything constructive with them. Has anyone any ideas???

As far as I remember(thats a long shot nowadays)loading the sim with numbers is easy enough.it then needs to transfer to the phone on setup as LG numbers are generally on line (phone , not stored on sim)That was how we did my daughters LG8120.she didnt keep it long as it spent more time in repair shop than in use..They may have changed this on your model

I know little about such things but I was under the impression that you copy the addresses from the phone to the sim card, then vice versa.

Maybe... maybe not...

Thanks to those good souls trying to help but we've been down those tracks already!! The card reader wouldn't recognise the Sim card!!

Does that phone have the option to "send business card"? Can get expensive but at least it will work...

Where would I find that out?

When you have a contact in the address book, see if it is under one of the options.

I've little experience of such things but maybe someone else can help

Thanks,Diodorus Siculus! You helped us inadvertently! We managed to find a way of doing it when we tried what you suggested. It wasn't exactly the way you described but it put us on the right track:)

That's me - the accidental helper! Good to hear that it's done.
