Your Paragon may take up to 3
minutes to read your SIM card before
copying can begin. An hourglass icon
will appear on the screen during this
time, please be patient as the menu
will prompt you when it’s ready for
your next action.
*Please ensure you reinstate your
PIN to your SIM when you return it to
your mobile handset for regular use.
Sometimes the mobile handset
directory entries will appear differently
when they are copied to the SIM, with
the name being appended with a
number, e.g.Tom1.
If handset directory is empty, the
screen only shows SIM TO PHONE.
If no SIM card is inserted INSERT SIM
is displayed on the screen.
If you have problems copying directory entries from your SIM
onto the Paragon 650 place the SIM back into your mobile
and confirm that the directory entries are stored on the SIM
and not within the mobile handset directory. If this is not the
case then you will need to copy the entries from your mobile
handset directory onto the SIM. Refer to your mobile user
guide for details.
