We used PhoneCopy.com service for this guideline. Using it, your can backup your contacts from your Nokia 808 PureView easily. The whole backup, including the settings, can be done in several 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.
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. In that case, please scroll down to the end of the article, where we are describing the way to transfer the contacts into the iPhone. But back to the screenshots now: create a new synchronization profile in the menu:
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.
Start the synchronization now.
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 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.
When synchronization finish you will get confirming message.
This guideline also works for similar devices like Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows 2003, Microsoft Windows 2008, Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows 8.1, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows ME, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows XP.
Now you have all your contacts backed up on PhoneCopy and you can edit all your contacts in your online account. If you lose your phone or the stored data, or if you just run out of battery, you can see your contacts online.
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.
