Nokia 6300 cellphone setup
To have your contacts saved you have to synchronize the Nokia 6300 with PhoneCopy. To show how to set up the synchronization we've made some screenshots. If those screenshot differ from you specific cell phone, follow the steps from it's Phonecopy manual. Create a new synchronization profile in the menu:
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. For Server address fill in http://www.phonecopy.com/sync
You are now almost ready to start synchronization!
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.
Assign your Nokia 6300 to your PhoneCopy account
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.
And now it's time to transfer contacts to your Apple iPhone 3GS
Run the Apple AppStore on your Apple iPhone 3GS and search for Phonecopy application, which you can download free of charge (we've been using version 1.02 in this tutorial). After downloading and installation, go through following steps.
Now you can start the first synchronization on your Apple iPhone 3GS to retrieve all contacts from PhoneCopy server to Apple iPhone 3GS.

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.
