Transfer Contacts From T-Mobile SIM Card To iPhone

This past weekend my wife’s T-Mobile phone broke and I had an old iPhone 3G that I decided to jailbreak for her to use on T-Mobile’s network.

I recently started using Microsoft Communicator for a contract I am working on and wanted to customize it a bit.

Below are simple directions that can be used to add customized statuses to Microsoft Communicator instant message client.
