Unfortunately, you won't be able to transfer contacts from your phone to your SIM card; there is no import/export option in your contacts menu that will allow you to do this. You will have to create new contacts and save them to either your SIM card or your phone, depending on where you want those contacts.

For saving contacts to Google account all internet directions said "tap import/export button" but I don't have it on my S4, so I presume that in newer Android version this button is changed with "Move contacts to", but if I can't choose import or export how will I import contacts back ones when I needed to?

I have found a solution to a problem you couldn't solve previously?

If you can't find an Export/Import option in the Contacts menu of a Samsung S4 or S4 Mini (which means you can't import or export your contacts, e.g. SIM to phone etc.), then the reason is likely that the phone is in Easy Mode rather than Standard Mode. . . The solution is to revert to Standard Mode. Then more options become available in the Contacts menu, including Import/Export and Merge contacts etc. In your current article on this problem, you advised there is no solution but to re-type all contacts manually. Thankfully there is. It's an S4 Mini, but it also applies to S4 models. This is missing information to enhance the article
