Questions and Answers
Sir, I want to copy my SIM numbers to Lumia 535?
Sir, I have Lumia 535. I want to copy my SIM card contact numbers but there is no option to copy the contact numbers from SIM to Lumia 535
This is unusual, but you can try solving it different ways. Try to tap on "Settings", "People" and search for "import SIM contacts" there.
Another way is putting the SIM card into the previous phone and exporting contacts to the SD card or as CSV.
The third way is using the Transfer My Data tool to copy the contacts from the SIM card inserted into the or another Windows or Nokia phone and sending them over by Bluetooth.
After you succeed in transferring the contacts, address your carrier for a replacement SIM card, just in case.
How can I see my contacts from my SIM in Microsoft Nokia Lumia 535 which have gone out after resetting the phone?
Earlier there were contact numbers. I reset the phone and all contacts are gone
If you ever connected your phone via the PC using Nokia's PC Suite, then you have a chance of retrieving those contacts. When you format your phone, it deletes everything. Unless you backed up files before you did the format, old files will be written over for new data.

Phone book window automatically closed?
Sir, I cannot call using my Lumia 535, I try any number to call, I search any number then put tap then window is automatically closed Do you have a screen protector on your phone? Many of them block the proximity sensor which will block a call from being made. Dial ##634# and select Proximity Sensor. To test, a yellow circle will turn green when you cover the Proximity Sensor.
If your Proximity Sensor is fine, connect your phone to the PC and use Nokia's PC Suite to backup and then run a full diagnostic on your phone. You may be required to do a factory reset but your contacts will be backed up.

How can I transfer all my contacts from 535 to the SIM card?
There is no option of transferring your contacts to the SIM card. However, all of your contacts are synchronized with the Microsoft account. The list of contacts is available at https://contacts.live.com. You will need to log in using your Microsoft account from your 535. Another option is using Transfer My Data from Windows Store, which allows you to copy contacts from one Windows phone to another via Bluetooth.
My Nokia Lumia 540 contact didn't show?
Why it is a problem, help please?
Your Microsoft Account is out of sync. Log into people.live.com and select Manage, Restore deleted contacts. Once you have brought the contacts up and restored them, you will want to open your phone and Sign into your Microsoft Account. Then hit Sync manually. It may take a bit of time but your contacts will appear again.
Gmail Contacts not showing in People App, I am unable the same?
Dear Thor, I had an issue with contacts please help me. I synced with Google contacts and I can see from the Gmail desktop account but in windows 630 Lumia phone I'm unable the same.
Did you add your Google email account within Settings under Accounts first? This could be what is causing your contact issue in the People App if it was not synced properly. Also, it can take sometimes up to 24 hours for your Google Account to sync to your phone. You will have to manually sync on the Lumia to get the contacts.

The Nokia Lumia 535 has no option to export to a SIM Card. Instead, they have an app called Transfer My Data which allows you to export to another phone over Bluetooth. Your contacts are also stored in the Live Cloud through your Microsoft Live account.

When on, the start up screen is OK but upon entering the password a dark blank screen with the time & battery seen at the top right corner only. I have tried: Removing the battery. I think it was caused by: I can't tell
Re-sync your Microsoft Account on the phone. Contacts disappear when the account is out of sync. This is because your phone stores the contacts in your Windows Live Account in a cloud. If the sync is off then there is nothing for the phone to see.

On the Nokia Lumia, open the People App. Select More and then Settings. There is an option called Import SIM Contacts. Enable this option then select Import again. The SIM you are using will need to be a Micro SIM for this to work.

I've managed to move my contacts from an old SIM into file download on my Microsoft Lumia Mobile but don't know how to move them into people. I have tried: I can open each individual in file download but have no idea what to do next
As explained above, you need to enable in More>Settings>Import SIM Contacts. If your previous phone was a Nokia as well then you can use the Transfer My Data over Bluetooth to the new Nokia.
I can't save a number in my phone?

Nokia does not support saving Contacts to a SIM. If your contacts are not saving, login into your Microsoft account on the phone and manually Sync. If you ever backed up your phone or connected it to Nokia's PC Suite then the Contacts will appear again. If they do not, make sure that you do not have 2 Step Verification enabled in your Microsoft/Windows Live Account on the PC. The code window will not appear on the phone and block you from accessing the account for Contacts.
