    Importing Contacts from SIM

    Hey guys, my nexus arrived today and I love it :D

    But, when I tried to transfer my sim from old phone to the nexus and import the contacts, I got a message saying that there is no contacts on my sim. I'm certain that I saved my contacts on my sim with my old phone (but I can't check since that broke, which is why i moved to nexus).

    Can anyone give me any tips here?
    Thanks

    i'm sure there is an easier way - but I had to go to the phone dialer and dial

    *#*#4636#*#*

    then choose phone info, then hit the menu button, view sim address book, then either choose contacts or hit menu and import all

    .............like I say there must be an easier way, but I tried it from the normal contact menu, it gave me the same error message

    I've tried both methods, and before posting here I actually did what it said in that link, but whatever I do it just keeps saying "No contacts on your SIM card" when I get to that screen :/

    hehe I'v tried but I cant find any phone lying around the house unlocked to my network (O2 IRL) so I might take a trip down to my local phone shop to see if they can extract any numbers

    Knowing clumsy me and my last pretty weird phone, they could well be all on my phone thats not working now /sigh

    Nope, wouldn't be able to get hold of anyone on O2 quickly. Anyway, being friends with the guys working at the phone shop helps
