    contacts from 4 sim cards to the ipad

    i would like to transfer all my contacts from the sims to my ipad2. i don't have access to itunes in a desktop, but i have a nephew - who has his own desktop itunes and iphone4.

    how can i transfer to my ipad2, thru his gadgets, without losing his contacts? or is there an easier way?

    because i have swirly sms working already, i intend to use one sim which has unlimited texting to all networks. all my contacts in my ipad will then be easily accessible.

    email them to yourself, and access your email on the device

    i asked my nephew, he doesn't know how.

    can the iphone4 do that without the computer? send all my sim contacts in one command without mixing with his own set? each sim has almost 250 contacts?

    or setup a gmail account, it will sync over the air with your gmail, and you should be able to see them online.

    you must choose "keep on your device" when asked while setting up.

    my nephew says the sim contacts cannot be saved in the iphone. he manually encoded his contacts, one-by-one.

    i'm back to square one

    You can copy sim contacts to an iphone, but it will mix in with his current contacts.

    Its under settings - mail, contacts and calendars - import sim contacts.
