    My sister saved all my contacts to my SIM card instead of the phone. I don't have the option of importing/exporting from my SIM card to my phone. It only says import/export to a USB storage. Help?

    I went into the contacts application ("People") and clicked the menu button (three dots on the lower right). There is a menu option that says "Import/Export" and then an option for "Import from SIM card"

    This is on the Moto X, so it is the stock contacts app (called "People"). If you are using a carrier skinned version, you'll have to specify that and maybe someone with the same phone can answer your question.

    The one thing Google doesn't give us is the ability to edit what kind of contact a contact is. You can import all your SIM contacts, then export all your contacts to a file, go to Google Contacts and import that file. You'll probably have loads of duplicates, so install an app from the Play Store that eliminates duplicates (there are a lot of free ones).

    You want all your contacts to be Google contacts. If you lose the phone and/or the SIM, if they get destroyed, etc., Google contacts are still there on the site, and any Android phone you put that account into will sync those contacts. (It's a lot easier than entering in a few hundred contacts by hand.)
