Transfer contacts and calendar from your Nokia N8-00 to the cloud server

PhoneCopy.com is a web service which is free for personal purposes (with few limitations). This tutorial will show you how to backup your device. The whole process can be completed in few minutes.

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 Connectivity Select Data Transfer Select Sync

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.

Select New Sync Profile Start synchronization wizard Type Phonecopy Select 1.2

Fill: Contacts Fill: Calendar Fill: Notes Select Internet

Enter http://www.phonecopy.com/sync Leave it empty Fill your username Fill your password

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.

Finish wizard Start the synchronization

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 data to your Apple iPhone 4

Run the Apple AppStore on your iPhone and search for PhoneCopy application (or PhoneCopy3G for older phones), 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.

Press the button Log in/new account Choose Log into an existing account Type in your username and password

Now you can transfer contacts from PhoneCopy.com server to your iPhone.

Once everything is done, check your data on the web. Login to PhoneCopy webpage and you will see brief review of all data transferred from your device. With another mouse click, you can review the change of each particular item.
