    Hello everyone. I have jailbroke and unlocked my iphone and I was wondering if there was anyway I could get my numbers from my old phone to the iphone. I have the numbers save to the sim card but they wont show up under contacts on the iphone. Thanks, Austin

    The built-in SIM import feature does not work 100%, especially if you have names with multiple numbers. Much better to make sure all your SIM numbers are in Outlook (by syncing your old phone to Outlook if possible), then sync your iPhone with Outlook.

    Or you can look for some 3rd party SIM import tool apps on the various app sites.

    The easiest way is to avoid the SIM completely. Try syncing the contacts from your old phone to your computer. Then your iPhone to your computer and check the sync contacts setting in iTunes. What was your old phone?
