You can access all settings later by bottom menu of the application or by main menu. In case you exceed limits for a free account we recommend you to buy Premium
And now it's time to transfer data to your Windows
Download PhoneCopy for Windows to your Windows PC, which you can download free of charge. After downloading and installation PhoneCopy icon will appear on your desktop.
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, then select the local directory where you stored your contacts, and choose VCARD format which will be used (we recommend to use 3.0 which is pre-selected - this is the right option when you are looking to import contacts from .vcf). Another option is to use native Windows Contacts format and synchronize directly from/to Contacts folder. Moreover, you can set your proxy on the same screen.
Now you can start the first synchronization on your Windows to transfer your contacts from/to PhoneCopy server. When synchronizing for the first time you can select synchronization direction. When you will add any VCARD contacts to selected directory you will see it synchronized to PhoneCopy after next sync. Status bar icon is animated during synchronization process.
