Transfer contacts and sms messages from your HTC Desire to the cloud server

In our guideline we will introduce PhoneCopy.com service which supports many phones from almost all manufacturers and can be easily used to synchronize data between two or more devices.

Download PhoneCopy for Android to your Android phone (VERSION 2.2 and higher ONLY), which you can download free of charge. After downloading and installation, go through following steps.

Run the app and create new account. You can check which contact databases you want to backup and synchronize. You can do multiple choice.

Create new account

After successful login, press "Advanced & Account". Select "One-way sync" and after choose "This device >> server".

Press Advanced & Account Press One-way sync Choose This device >> server

Contacts from your Android phone will be copied to PhoneCopy.com server in few seconds.

And now it's time to transfer data to your Nokia E72

Phonecopy client registration is simple. Choose your username and insert your email address, where we will send you a confirmation email that you will need to activate your account.

Cellphone setup

To have your contacts saved you have to synchronize the Nokia with PhoneCopy. First step is to set up the synchronization on the Nokia. For better illustration, we've made some screenshots, but experienced users naturally won't need and will be able to set up the phone on their own, or following the device manual on PhoneCopy website. But back to the screenshots now: create a new synchronization profile in the menu:

Select Settings Select Synchronization Select Yes Select New Sync Profile

Follow the instructions to set up the connection. If you're only saving contacts, you can leave out some of the steps, or you can backup you calendar, tasks and notes as well.

Press Start Type Phonecopy Select 1.2 Check contacts

Fill: Contacts Select Internet Enter http://www.phonecopy.com/sync Leave it empty

Fill your username Fill your password Press Yes

Start the synchronization now. You can select the data to be synchronized before starting. If you are transferring only contact, choose to transfer contacts only. However if you want to use PhoneCopy as a backup platform and you have made the corresponding settings, choose Calendar, Tasks and Notes as well.

Start the synchronization Check Contacts

After your phone is synchronized, go back to your PhoneCopy online profile (probably you will have it still open in the browser since you activated your account) and accept the assignment of your phone to the account. If you do it within the hour after the synchronization, the phone will be assigned automatically and you will only need to confirm the process. If the delay is greater than one hour, you will be asked by the server for the cellphone's identification number, called IMEI. This number can be easily found under the battery of the cellphone, or you can type in the symbols *#06# and the IMEI will appear on the display.
