    Default New SIM Card

    When I bought my Note 2 the tech put my SIM card form my Thunderbolt in the Note 2. Did you guys get a new sim card with your phone or did you use the old sim card?

    It made me get a new one when I ordered online. Tbolt sim is a different size I thought. Not sure how this is possible.

    Maybe I got it wrong. Maybe it was just the SD card. I'm still trying to figure out why all my contacts didn't transfer over.

    I came from the Thunderbolt as well and it must have been the SD card as the Thunderbolt SIM card is too big for the Note 2. It's an older standard size SIM, whereas the Note 2 uses a microSIM card (came with the phone when I ordered it).

    As to your contacts, I'm guessing they were stored on the phone itself and not backed up to Google or anywhere else? If you still have the Thunderbolt, you can export them to the SD card. In the People app, hit menu, Import/Export, and choose Export to SD card. It creates a file called pcsc_pcsc_00001.vcf (it will increment a number if a file already exists) on the root of the SD card. To restore them on the Note 2 (after you’ve swapped SD cards), bring up the Contacts app, hit menu, Import/Export, and choose Import from SD card and select the appropriate vcf file if prompted.
