It doesn't work that way. You have to import to your phone first THEN phone to SIM.

Probably not. Putting contacts on SIM cards is almost a thing of the past. You can only put names and phone numbers on a SIM - no email or street addresses, birthdays, notes, photos - all the other info people need or want to include.

Best to save all contacts to your Gmail account.
