if your old sim isn't a micro or nano one, then DON'T FORCE it in, you will break the sim and the phone and that'll be costly

your best bet, honestly, is the age old paper and pen method of copying them over one at a time. either write them onto a piece of paper and then copy them to your iphone or just type them straight to your phone (i prefer the paper method as if you get distracted you can tick off where you're up to and just carry on but different strokes for different folks)

I just export all contacts to a VCF file, then move that file to the new phone by one of a variety of ways and import.

I can't recommend this from personal experience as I've never used one, but it seems to do the job.

http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/sim-reader-and-writer-a67gg

There are probably cheaper versions of it around if you look on Google, but I guess you can get it from Maplin quicker.

Thanks guys.....firstly yes sims not compatable.....thanks anyway Willo! Thanks j Demo i was trying to avoid having to input them all individually , but this would be a good way of clearing out old contacts ! lol! Have tried to bluetooth but my old phone pairs with the iphone but the iphone wont pair !
Not sure if I have the knowledge for a vcf file????
Have contacts backed up on cloud with 02 but cant access them
Have tried a wondershare but this has only transferred contacts listed c to s !!
Was hoping to have to avoid buying a card reader Excoriatorbut thanks !!
