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. After finally getting the iPhone baseband correct and on the version of the iPhone iOS that I wanted to use I had a couple loose ends to resolve which included transferring her contacts to the iPhone. Luckily most of the contacts had been saved onto her T-Mobile SIM card and after a bit of research I realized it was really easy to transfer contacts from the T-Mobile SIM card to the iPhone by using the instructions below.

MyTouch 3G Android: The Application Twidroyd (process com.twidroid) Has Stopped Unexpectedly

My wife has a T-Mobile MyTouch 3G cell phone running Android software and tonight she told me about an issue she was having with her favorite Twitter application called Twidroyd. She upgraded the application as recommended by Android but then when she went to start Twidroyd after the upgrade it would crash every single time. Then she attempted to drag the application to the trash on her MyTouch desktop however that would also fail. Below I describe what steps I tried to take to remove Twidroyd and then how I was finally able to remove the application from Android.

Assign Voicemail To a Speed Dial Key on a T-Mobile BlackBerry 8320 Curve

Awhile back I accidentally assigned a Speed Dial key to the number 1 on my BlackBerry 8320 Curve cell phone. The problem with this is that the 1 key is reserved for Voicemail. When VM is dialed with that speed dial key then the Voicemail Settings are used so if you have password protected your voicemail, as noted here, then you can have the password automatically entered when dialing VM by using the 1 Speed Dial key.
