Using Jellybean (4.4.2) I'm trying to save a new contact to my phone (I want to whatsapp this person).

Whether I add the person through my People app or through Whatsapp itself, I get the same error:

The USIM is unable to store the contact

I have only 72 contacts and it's my understanding that USIM allows for thousands so what gives?

  • The details you want to store? SIMs were not intended to keep so many of them per person as we use today. Usually, a SIM contact consists of not much more than a name and a single number – no multiple numbers, no mail addresses, no Skype user names, etc. – Izzy Aug 20 '15 at 19:01
  • @Izzy it's a new contact so just the name and a single phone number... – Ortund Aug 20 '15 at 19:17
  • OK, then I don't know what it could be. I no longer store contacts to SIM. – Izzy Aug 20 '15 at 19:18
  • To Google rather? – Ortund Aug 20 '15 at 19:26
