While that's true of CDMA models like Sprint or Verizon carry in the US, the
GSM world is very different. GSM handsets have no "identity" of their own-
they lack the programmable NAM that CDMA phones use- the SIM, or "Subscriber
Identity Module" IS the identity of a GSM phone, and can be moved from
handset to handset carrying your account and phone number with it.

With a GSM phone, there's a "copy memory" function that allows you to copy
the phonebook from SIM to phone memory or vice versa. I assume the (GSM)
RAZR is no different, but as I haven't owned a Motorola phone in many, many
moons, I can't help with the actual procedure. Even my recent higher-end
Windows Mobile phones have SIM management software, although I never use it-
I copy the contacts from my PC's Outlook contacts.
