And now it's time to transfer contacts to your Samsung Galaxy
Android is a popular platform which is growing very quickly. You need an Android phone version 2.2 (Froyo and higer e.q. 2.2.1, 2.2.2), 2.3 (Gingerbread and higher e.g. 2.3.2, 2.3.3, 2.3.4, 2.3.5, 2.3.6, 2.3.7), 3.0.1 (Honeycomb and higher e.q. 3.1, 3.2, 3.2.1), 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwitch and higher 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.3), 4.1, 4.2 or 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and 4.4 (KitKat), including tablets. Let us just remind you, that for now PhoneCopy for Android only transfers contacts and SMS.
This tutorial works also for those phones: Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Trend, Galaxy S III Mini, Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini, Samsung Galaxy Mega
First, download PhoneCopy for Android to your phone. It's free. Install it and then follow these steps.
Type your Phonecopy username and password. If you do not have any contacts in your Android phone yet, you can choose "Server >> this device" synchronization direction. If unsure, it's always safe to choose "Combine both".
Now you can start the first synchronization. You will see a red button "Agree and continue", what you presss . Now, you see the synchronization.

Some additional tips
Contacts can be then transferred to another device eg. iPhone, other Nokia, SonyEricsson, Samsung, LG etc). You can always edit your contacts in your online account. PhoneCopy is often used as a ultimate backup service, should you loose your phone or the stored data, or if you just run out of battery and you need to see your contacts online. Also, on your online account, you will see full history of your contacts, as well as the data that you've deleted in between the synchronizations. You can find them in an archvie from where you can restore them. And if this is still not enough of a backup for you, you can download a .CSV file, that you can store in your computer.
The whole backup, including the settings, can be done in several minutes and the service is completely free.
