Using ICS, is it possible to store and use all my contacts on SIM only?

If it is possible I don't really want to copy all my contacts to the phone and I would prefer all the new contacts to be stored only on SIM card.

  • Note, that while saving on the SIM, you can store far fewer entries and each entry would correspond to ONE number so multiple phone numbers for a single contact would still occupy multiple slots and capacity. Also, other fields like address, birthday, email etc. can't be used. – Sparx Apr 6 '12 at 17:42
  • Yes, that's ok. – Ecir Hana Apr 7 '12 at 10:04

You haven't mentioned which phone you use.

Unsure about ICS, but on Gingerbread, go to Contacts - press MENU > MORE > SETTINGS > SAVE CONTACTS to - SIM

This is available on newer versions though, YMMV.

  • I don't have such menu path... There is no "MENU > MORE > SETTINGS > SAVE CONTACTS to - SIM". I'm running 4.0.2. – Ecir Hana Apr 7 '12 at 10:05
  • Same here. No Settings menu at all. There are five options: "view group", "fast call", "accounts", "import/export" and "view profile" that all. No settings. – Calmarius Mar 31 '15 at 23:58
