SIM CARDS

I keep hearing about SIM cards.  I have phones that use sim cards.  I have heard people say save it to the phone..some things people say  save to the sim card.  I have 2 questions

 

1  As a general rule..what should be saved to your phone  and what should be saved to a sim card?

 

2.  Both phones I have are LG phones.  How do you take something and save it to the sim card. 

 

I seem to get the impression that saving something to the sim card keeps it from ever getting lost.  This would be great for pictures and your contacts.  Am I getting any of this right ?  How do you save to a sim card

 

Thanks

Your contacts list as well as some possible pictures are definitely files that should be saved to your SIM card. I have all of my contacts saved to my SIM - it came in handy one time when my phone's touch screen went out and I couldn't back up my contacts so I thought that they were lost. Turns out, I was smart and actually DID save them to my SIM card. Smiley Happy

Unfortunately I do not know how to save contacts and other files to the SIM card without actually having ahold of the phone. I don't know how to explain it without looking at the phone, but if you look in your contacts there should be an option to save your contacts to your SIM.

Re: SIM CARDS

can't save pics to a SIM card. new generation cards have 64K memory, even if compatible a single picture would fill it up, generally

Re: SIM CARDS

I put all of my contacts on SIM. It is handy when switching phones. When I put it in my LG Vu Plus, and powered on, after a few moments it automatically asked if I want to import the contacts from SIM, I did, and it worked with no problem.
