Start the application and small PhoneCopy icon will appear on right bottom corner of your screen on status bar. When you will press this icon at first time you will be asked to fill your username and password. Any next icon click will start synchronization.
Start PhoneCopy for Windows. Fill your PhoneCopy username and password, select local directory to store contacts, and choose VCARD format which will be used (we recommend to use 3.0 which is pre-selected).

Some additional tips:
Just as a reminder, the contacts are transferred via your mobile phone service provider, so you need to have data plan activated for the service to work. If you don't have a special data scheme, your carrier will charge you additional fees.
