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

Start with synchronization wizard and use guidline

Select New Sync Profile Start synchronization wizard Type Phonecopy Select 1.2

Choose items which you want to synchronization and fill all boxes

Choose applications which you want to synchronize Fill: Contacts Fill: Calendar Fill: Notes

Fill your user name and password. Now, you can start with synchronization

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

Start the synchronization now.

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.

Some additional tips:

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 archive 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.
