    I just sold my iPhone :( , praying for a 3G release soon!

    Anyways, I was just wondering why the iPhone doesn't have an option to save to sim. When I took the sim card out and put it into the RAZR I expected some contacts on there, but I was mistaken. I guess I'll just copy the important ones from Yahoo into the RAZR.

    Is there something I missed? Or do I just have to manually put the contacts on the RAZR.

    The iPhone doesn't need to save anything on the SIM because everything's backed up on your Mac or PC. So, when you get a new iPhone, you just sync it a away you go.

    Of course, this also assumes that you'll never go from an iPhone back to a mere phone...

    you could get the details saved off the SIM, you could sync to outlook or similar for contacts, then resync with the RZR.
    Why go from iPhone to RZR btw?

    The RAZR is just my temporary phone until the iPhone is released.

    Yeah I'm pretty upset with Outlook 2003, since getting the iPhone I have been trying to take advantage of all of its features, and it would be nice having contacts, email and events on outlook to transfer to the iPhone.

    However, everytime I try to start up Outlook there is an error that says

    cICEROuiwNDfRAME: Outlook.exe

    I never even use outlook, I don't understand why there is a problem. It sucks though, I re-installed and everything, got nothing.

    I did a search on your problem and came up with this possible solution:

    Reinstall or remove the Speech Recognition for Office.
    Start the Office Add/Remove components from Control Panel-> Add/Remove
    programs and browse to Office Shared Features-> Alternative User Input-> and
    set for Speech and Handwriting Recognition (both) "Not available" from the
    drop-down box. Let setup have it's go and restart your system. Verify that
    the problem is gone now. If you used this feature you can reinstall it.

    Does that help you?

    Thanks for your help so far, but yeah I already typed my error message on google and looked at all the sites for help.

    However, this is what happens for me

    1. Open Control Panel
    2. Add/Remove Programs
    3. I have Microsoft Professional Edition 2003 and Microsoft Small Business Edition 2003 (idk why, because I only have 1 version available to me and Small Business Edition is the disk that my comp came with)
    4. Open up Offic Small Business 2003
    5. Box pops up that lets me add/remove features : reinstall/rapair : or Uninstall
    6. When I click add/remove, it goes to a screen that says "Select the Microsoft Office 2003 applications you would like to install. Please deselect the applications that you would like to remove." And it lists the applications and has boxes next to each of them to check.

    Somehow, the other day I was able to get to Office Shared Features, but not passed that. I don't know why this is so difficult for me to solve lol.

    Any help?
