Every cell phone uses SIM cards. In America they are often called smart chips. You place this small chip inside your cell phone. If you put this card in another compatible phone, the new phone aquires your cell phone number and some settings. Thus, if you keep your phone book in the SIM card, it will go with you to every new phone you place your card into. If you keep your phone book in the internal memory of the phone, it will not go to a new phone. You can change in your phone's settings where the numbers in your phone book are stored (in internal phone memory or SIM card).
SPAM is unsolicited email sent to multiple recepients without their consent. Spamming has already become a problem. Since it happens to be a very cheap way to inform a lot of people at once about your business, many companies use this method althoug it has been the subject of legislation in a number of jurisdictions. Every email provider or Internet service provider has some spam filters to protect its customers. All letters are sorted into 3 categories: those which should be delivered, those which should be deleted, those "in between" which end up in your "bulk mail" (or "junk mail") folder. Messages containing certain words, URLs, being addressed to multiple recepients, being sent from certain addresses and a variety of other factors define if this or that message is spam or not. Too lenient filters with not very strict rules let a lot of spam go into your mailbox. Too strict filters block legitimate messages from time to time on the ground of some criteria. there is no perfect solution to this problem yet. Most email providers give users an interface to manage their spam filters on some level.
