    Hi,
    I bought a Xiaomi 2S for my daughter, she was using a HTC before. All contacts have been stored on the SIM Card and are visible on the HTC. The 2S however claims that there are no contacts on the sim card.
    Any clue on what might be the reason ?
    The 2S is running the latest Multi Language Rom. And the SIM Card looks "normal" , not to old + - a year or so from Congstar

    Tks

    Really questio could be are contacts were really saved to SIM card. I understand when you said yes, but i passed several times like that.

    Hi,

    tks, but yes they are on the sim card. If we remove the simcard and use another one or even without card the contacts are gone from the HTC

    have you make sure contacts>>settings>>display preferences>>show sim contacts, has been selected?
    and also as workaround, just use sync contacts with google accounts. that's much more simple :)

    if you go to contacts, then you can chose import contacts from sim card, and it should be all

    i have the same problem.

    i think that the Mi2 doesn't support micro-Sim cards.

    because: if i put a normal sim card (normal size) in it works with sim-contacts.

    Hi,
    the simple "choose import contacts from sim card" did not work because the phone replied "no contacts found on sim card"
    The card itself is normal size, used in a little HTC phone.
    Anyhow problem solved via Google synchronisation.
    Tks for the tipps

    Save her contacts on the HTC phone and synchronise it with her gmail account. After that you can synchronise the contacts with her 2s

    Edit: never mind, you found it :)

    Hi,

    you have a micro-Sim card in the Mi2 ? Hmmm, I doubt that. The "normal" Sim-card in the Mi2 is the one with 2.5 cm x 1.5 cm.
    The micro sim is used in Iphone 4s and newer and several others.
    But the size of the sim card has nothing to do with the provider. You get from them what you need :)

    sry 4 my bad english.

    i hope your german so its easier to explain.

    die karte von congstar kannst du so rausbrechen wie du sie brauchst. Als micro-sim oder normale grösse. Oder ist das bei dir nicht so ????

    Im endeffekt ist es eine micro-sim.

    that's right. The only thing is, you cannot backup your contacts to SIM
