    Hey Gang

    I recently saved a load of contacts to my SIM card. Now everytime I do a search from the Today screen, I see the SIM contacts before the phone's. Ugh! Of course, searches a slower too now.

    I've been looking for a setting somewhere or registry hack that tells the search to ignore SIM contacts but I can't find one. This is pretty standard stuff on Nokia and SE phones.

    Another one to add to the long list of requests for WM6?

    Thanks for any help

    WM6 not gonna help you solve this issue, either. Maybe WM7

    I'm surprised that M$ doesn't have the option to hide SIM contact list when I looking for it on my WM6 device.

    I had to delete my SIM contacts. In the end they are still backed up to Outlook every time that I sync and I can always copy them back to the card in cass I need to change phones. If I lose the phone I'd lose the SIM inside anyway.

    I know the Treo 650 had a feature where you can hide the Sim contacts, but on the 750 the feature is not there.

    The registry wizard that cellneuron posted has a feature that says "hide SIM contacts"- you might want to download it.

    But in an event you are comfortable with hacking the registry, I opened the info and here it says:


    comment says "this tweak makes it possible to hide or show contacts on the SIM card"

    Good luck.

    Hide SIM contacts
    Registry: HKCU\ControlPanel\Phone
    Key: ShowSim (dWord)
    Value: 0 = hide
    1 = show
