Can I Transfer My Sim Card Data?

My phone recently got destroyed. I was given a replacement, but the replacement has an embedded SIM card. Is there any way to download my old data directly to replace what's on its card now?

Re: Can I Transfer My Sim Card Data?

I'm not sure what you are really asking here.  Some people store contact information on their SIM cards but other than that, SIM cards do not hold data.  Are you asking about storing your contacts on your new SIM card?

 

Did you mean to ask about the microSD card, instead?

What phone did you have before, and what phone do you have now?  I'm not aware of any Android devices that have an "embedded" SIM.

Ah, yes, the OP must mean MicroSD.  That makes much more sense.

 

Just get a USB card reader (less than 10 bucks from a computer store, Amazon, etc.), transfer the data to your computer, then connect your new phone to the computer and cut/paste the data to the phone's storage.
