Thread already been posted.

See http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=35778

At the moment it's not supported, implementing more features would delay the N900 even further it seems.

For details and progress see bug 6537 - https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6537

SIM cards don't have contacts list support though. They only have phone number list support, i.e. a very simple '1 number - 1 short name' mapping. So you won't be able to store a proper contact to a SIM card, that is, a contact where you have listed full, long name, street address, mail address, a couple of different phone numbers.

Because of this I don't try to save contacts to SIM when I change phone, instead I use e.g. bluetooth to send the full list of contacts to, say, my N800, where it will be saved as a .vcard file. Then I import that one on my new phone.

Hi, I had this problem too. But the best way is synchronize contacts via bluetooth, like TA-t3 said.

Nokia 900 stores your Sim Contacts onto Windows Live. Log onto Windows Live Turn your phone off and on and now it should be there.

And you took the time and effort to register here, at TALK.MAEMO.ORG only to reply to a 2010 thread with a completely bogus response that has nothing to do with either Maemo or with the Nokia N900?
