Hi.
I have an Alcatel One Touch 991S Android phone.
I think I have Gingerbread OS on it.
I am changing my cell phone service provider.
I have to install a new SIM card.
I want to retain all of my contacts.
I was thinking that I needed to transfer them.
I realized later that they are all stored on the phone
and that even with the new SIM card, they would still
be there.

Anyway, thinking that I had to transfer them, I went into
"Contacts", which has a blue square icon with a white
head in it. I clicked on import/export. Then my fingers
accidentally stumbled somehow & hit something, I don't
know what, but "Contacts" was suddenly empty.

Later I found out that if I opened up the "Phone" and clicked
on "Favorites", my contacts were all in there. I also discovered
that a new icon had appeared on my home screen.

It is called "All Contacts" and it is unlike all the other icons.
It looks like a file folder. But it is not listed when I open "File Manager".
It also does not appear in the list of applications when I open that list.
("Contacts" which is now empty does appear in that list.)

If I open "All Contacts", it contains the contacts that disappeared
from "Contacts".

So, I'm wondering if I insert the new SIM card and just leave my contacts
in this new file, will they work properly? Do I need to transfer them
back to "Contacts"? If so, how do I transfer them? I don't see any way
of manipulating the items on the list.

Thanks.
