How to save contacts in phone & sim on an HTC Sensation/Android?

Asked by xTheDreamer (881points) August 15th, 2011

I just bought an HTC Sensation and I’m putting my contacts in the phone but it would either save to sim or phone. My old phones that I had, had the choice of saving the contacts in sim, phone or either on both(phone&sim). So I’m used to that and it’s also handy if my phone is damaged my contacts are still on my sim or if I want to change providers which the sim card is different, I would still have all my contacts on the phone.

So I wanted to know how can I save my contacts to both phone&sim on the HTC Sensation or on an Android phone.

For an Android, it should ask you to log into your Google account. You then just use your Google contacts. Technically, you can save contacts to the phone, but I don’t know why you would do that, especially if you’re looking to preserve them beyond that phone.

I think @Aethelflaed is correct about the phone part – that phone can always use your Google contacts.

But the SIM part is a good question. It could be handy to put your SIM in a non-smart phone and still have your contacts.

I have a little Motorola Razr, and sometimes I wish I could carry that little phone instead of the over-sized Android model.
