    Yes phone numbers can be stored on the sim card. If you go to your contacts and press the bb option it gives you the option of SIM PHONE BOOK. You can then add your phone numbers manual. Now if you want to transfer your contacts from your phone to your sim card you can to. The only way I can think to do this is by doing this action but I havent tried it personally. If you go into a verizon store tell them that you would like to do a phone book transfer it is 10 dollars per transfer. Now tell them you want to transfer all your contacts but you want to transfer them to the sim card. I would suggest going into a Kiosk that are in PC Richards or Bjs since they have more free time to perform the needed task. Now you would probably need an old phone to accomplish this action. They will need to transfer all you contacts from your BB to your old phone. Then transfer all your contacts from your old phone to the BB just tell them you want it transfered to the sim card. And make sure they dont overwrite you current storm contacts because it gives you that option. Also if you can have your sim card taken out then they should be able to transfer from storm directly to sim card. Good Luck

    PS. If your go to a Verizon Wireless Kiosk in BJS or Pcr and your nice sometimes they wont charge you 10 dollars. lol

Just wandered if you know about this list. I am not asking about any release dates, rumor phones etc..... Only the validity of said list.

    Thanks, again for your help.
    Ok Il let the cat out the bag about 5 Star. Its actually a program we use to help us help customers the best. Its a set of lists with different criteria in it. Lets say for example your text messaging but do not have a text messaging plan, you will be on that list and a rep should be calling you. Yes the tour and pre has been added to the list. LOL Welcome to the world of verizon wireless.

    another way to move you contacts to your sim is to open you contact list, then pick a contact.. for instance my first contact is Andy..so I open my contact list then click andy's name(in landscape) when you get to his info you the hit bbkey>copy contact to sim card..

    Hope this helps. doing it via a machine at the store is much quicker but this is free

    Ok, heres a dumb question, why wont VZW let Blackberry's get in on the VCast or get it now stuff? I was wondering that when Cruz posted the Vcast thread about the stanley cup playoffs, but forgot to ask. I dont use rhapsody, so that VCast doesn't count in my question, lol. There is a kick ass Song ID app for get it now that I would love to get my hands on.
