I tried it out and thought that it worked fine until recently I lost all my contact information when I synced my phone with the windows contact. I didn\'t panic because I knew that I had the contact placed on the Sim card but when I\'m trying it out, no success. I lost bout 213 contacts.

I would suggest readers not to install this app from this site. Not only does the app not work but I think it also installs a virus on your iPhone (Ike/BBot virus). This results in your lockscreen changing and your ssh being blocked/inaccessible. So be very careful. You have been warned.

Useless app. Does not work. Keeps giving message \"Cannot copy contacts. Sim is Full!\"
