    Hi guys.

    Obviously all the music and picture content of your iPhone is stored on the hard-drive. What about your contacts? When I take the SIM out of my old 2G iPhone and put it into the 3G model, will the contacts be stored there?

    Also, perhaps more importantly, what about the text conversations? I assume they are stored on the hard-drive too? Can they be copied across through iTunes or anything?

    Many thanks for any help you can give me.

    No, the iPhone doesn't store contacts in the SIM. However, they'll be restored onto your new iPhone from iTunes, when you sync up. Just make sure you sync you old phone before you go and make the switch.

    Same deal, they restore along with everything else.

    First of all, you don't need to use your old SIM in the new 3G iPhone as it brings a new one (AGAIN). Nothing is stored on the SIM in the iPhone. Just sync your iPhone and everything will be saved including contacts and text conversations. Then when you get your 3G, just it up from your latest back up, which should be your 2G iPhone.
