Transfer contacts from your Nokia Asha 308 to the cloud server

We used PhoneCopy.com service for this guideline. Using it, your can backup your contacts from your Nokia Asha 308 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.

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 SelectConfiguration Choose Personal confugurat. Choose Synchronisation

Follow the instructions to set up the connection. Choose your username and password. Fill in Server and Account name according instructions. It is possible to backup your contacts, calendar or notes.

Select Account name, server address, username and pasword Select Database address Type contacts

Follow the instructions and continue to synchronisation.

Choose Sync with server Choose Sync now a yes Choose SIM1 Choose PhoneCopy

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 Microsoft Windows 10

Download PhoneCopy for Windows to your Windows, which you can download free of charge. After downloading and installation PhoneCopy icon will appear on your desktop.

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). Another option is to use native Windows Contacts format and synchronize directly to Contacts folder. Also you can set your proxy.

Now you can start the first synchronization on your Windows to transfer your contacts from/to PhoneCopy server. Also 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.



Succesfull sync





When synchronization finish you will get confirming message.





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.
