    The contacts are stored in the iPhone cause apple for some reason wont let the iPhone import into the sim card. So watever contacts you have in your sim card when you import them throught system settings they will show up on the iPhone

    Correct....

    But then you can just use iTunes (if you get another iPhone) or iSync, missing sync, pocketmac, bitpim, etc (if you get most other phones) to re-sync your contacts.

    Maybe if you explain why you're concerned about this, we can help you find a workaround?

    Ten years ago, I totally understood the value of putting contacts on a SIM. But today, I have some 700 contacts, most of whom have multiple e-mail addresses, phone numbers, etc. All that stuff isn't going to fit on a SIM anyway, is it?

    i remember with older jailbroken phones it was possible to send contacts to the sim and pull them off. dont know if that software made it to the more recent jailbreaks
