How to Copy Contacts From an iPhone to a SIM Card

Backing up phone contacts on your SIM card is never a bad idea, and it can be extremely useful, particularly if anything were to happen to your phone. Despite the advantages of Apple's iPhone, some software glitches have meant simple tasks like transferring your contacts to the SIM card aren't possible with standard-issue iPhones. However, this problem can be overcome on jailbroken iPhones, and then all your contacts can be backed up on your SIM.
