I don't think you can put contacts on the memory card. And yes the phone will store upto 500 contacts.

A client I had once had 3000+ contacts. I think he ended up using categories in Outlook, and creating one called 'phone' to sync to his phone.

If you NEED more than 500 on your phone then you probably NEED either a P.D.A., a P.A., or a  L.I.F.E.

You cannot put a sim card into a CDMA phone. The slot in the back is for a RUIM card which isn't supported by Telecom.

With the 6255, the only option for storing contacts is the in built memory with the limitation discussed. There is no way around it, unless you find a java program to manage contacts that can hold more. But that would probably suck anyway. :-)

Why not make a WAP site with all your contacts? You will pay fifty thousand dollars a gigabyte to access it though (dont laugh, im serious).

I used to have a 7110 back in the old days. It stored 1000 contacts and 100+ SMS.

Woah - it would work out to be 50k per gigabyte! That's insane
