I have been trying to play around with my new Lumia 920.
When I add a new contact, It gives me the option to either save it to my Google Account or Outlook account (Which I had set up)
I Swamp/change phones a lot....and hence wanted to save the contact information to my sim card so that I can Import the contacts from the SIM.
I see an option to Import the contacts from SIM card but do not see an option to export contacts to SIM or save contacts to SIM.
Is this a Bug or a feature not supported/Implemented by Nokia?
Or this feature is present and I do not know about it?
Did anyone face a similar situation and can confirm?

This is based on the W1 but may work with other phones.
The setting to export to sim was missing on my W1, I had thought it was a design problem but I found out the following by pure accident while moving my contacts from gmail to my live account.
Import or create your contacts into your live / hotmail account.
Edit them if need be and save them as csv file from inside live / hotmail. ( this is not required, its just handy to have a backup )
On the wp8 set the contacts to filter from hotmail.
Wait a few minutes.
Any new contacts will show up under phone or people
There should now be the option to export to sim :-)
Dont ask me how this works, I stumbled on it by chance :-)
