If you saved anything to the SIM card and then removed the SIM card, there is no method to capture what you placed on the SIM card, as it is now absent.

    Or maybe you can go to a store to ask about it, search online for information, go to your phone store like tmobile,... Etc. Or you can replace your with a new one and I would said good luck.

SOURCE: Save my address book from old sim card to new phone.

There should be a menu that when you put in a simcard, go to your address book and you can select each contact off the card, then select copy to phone. when you put back in your new sim card you have the option to transfer your contacts to the sim card, although you will then have duplicate copies of contacts and you will need to delete the contacts off the phone if you wish to keep them on the sim card only.

to retrieve your numbers you would need to follow these key strokes...

center, toggle down (1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times)

then wait for quite some takes a while to copy all of the contacts...I would say anywhere from 5 to 10 mins...

this should work to save your contacts.

To save your pictures (and any other data you might want to retrieve) you could buy Sony's data cable2.gif for the z525a. I haven't tried this but it should work since that is what the cable is for.

Its called a DCU-60 USB data cable, and is listed as being compatible with the z525a.

How can I transfer smses from my Nokia E51 to my Samsung Wave?

Your phone has an option to save sms onto the sim card. Typically up to 30 or 60 can be saved. You can then remove and transfer sim from one phone to another. This may not be the quickest method (if you have lots of sms) but you do not need a PC or any software in this case.

Note: Option to save sms to and from sim is available in the Messages menu. Refer to user manual for more detail.

Just type desired number then choose option (or save,depends on type of your mobile and choose SIM instead of phone memory). You can also copy numbers from phone memory (and vice versa) but SIM cards are limited to 250 numbers and 30 SMS.

Motorola Problem

Thats not atall software prob buddy. You verify that your messages are saved on phone memory and that you are not using SIM stored numbers. You can surely backup all phone memory numbers to SIM by copying.
