    In order to copy your Sim card contacts to phone all you have to do is Navigate to the Contacts application from the Application drawer and then press the menu button in your phone there you will see an option as ImportExport in that select the option as Import from Sim Card and then select the option as all contacts. Once it is done you will have all your contacts in the phone memory.
    Hope this Helps.

    You can import your contact from SIM card to your phone easily. For do this just
    1. press on the Menu
    2. then Import/Export
    3. Import from SIM card
    you will see two question after that
    1. Are you sure the SIM contacts were really imported or only displayed.
    2. Is the option to show phone contacts checked after you changed the SIM.

    Contact move from SIM card is also remain on the SIM card. If you want to
    delete it from SIM card then you need to do it manually.
    For transfer the contact from SIM card to Phone there are some apps are also
    available. You can do this by using that apps also.

    Hello Guest,
    Just go to your contact list. For this, tap on the green phone icon present at the bottom in launch bar. Now tap on "Contacts" tab. Now, tap for the contact list options. A popup menu appears. Tap on "More". After that select "Import/Export" from the next screen and finally select "Import from SIM Card". A dialog box showing the import progress appears now. The copying process will take just a few seconds. That's it. Thank You for visiting this forum. :-)

    There is a free application called "Merge Contact" that allows you to copy your phone number from a Phone contact to a Google contact

    an app in the market called "Contact to Sim"
    This application copies your contacts to the sim card, for use in another phone
