What are the pluses and minuses of saving Contacts to the SIM card as opposed to the phone?

What is the 'recommended' way to save Contacts?

Personally I think it's best to save your contacts on a cloud based storage (eg iCloud or the Google equivalent). -- Then if my SIM card or the phone it is kept in is lost / stolen / damaged, I will still have a copy of all my contacts.

 

Also with a cloud based storage, you'd have next to unlimited storage space for these, whereas if you are storing them to the SIM, you are limited to a small number (I believe 50 contacts on the latest 48K SIM's we are issuing).

 

Also, with a cloud based storage solution, you can store a lot more feature rich INFO on each contact (EG including addresses, other phone numbers, photo, email addresses etc). Whereas on the SIM you can not Smiley Happy

@Geoff75

Would agree, I've stored all my contacts etc in the cloud - unlimited space and very handy in case of emergencies.

Thanks for the post.
