Transfer contacts and calendar from your Nokia 6300 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.

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.

Phone 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 Configuration Select Personal config. sett. Select Add

Select Synchronisation Select Account name and Type PhoneCopy, Type http://www.phonecopy.com/sync into the server address field and Type your username into the username field Select Contacts database Type Contacts into Database address field

Select Calendar database Type calendar into Database address field Select Notes database Type Notes into Database address field

Select PhoneCopy Select Activate Select Connectivity

Select Data transfer Select Server Sync Select Edit Select Sync settings

Select Personal config. Select synchronised data Check the items you wish to synchronize Save changes

Select Server sync.

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.

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.

Now you can easily edit your contacts and other resources online in your PhoneCopy profile. You have access to your contact even if you forget your phone at home.

Some additional tips:

Contacts can be then transferred to another device (eq. iPhone, other Nokia, SonyEricsson, Samsung, LG etc). You can always edit your contacts in your online account. Also, you will see full history of your contacts, as well as the data that you have deleted between two synchronizations.
