Phone 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 Connect. Select Sync Select Options Select New sync profile

Type PhoneCopy into Sync profile name Select Applications Select Contacts Select Yes in the Include in sync field, type Contacts into Remote database field, type Normal into Synchronisation type field

Select Calendar Select Yes in the Include in sync field, type Calendar into Remote database field, type Normal into Synchronisation type field Select Notes Select Yes in the Include in sync field, type Notes into Remote database field, type Normal into Synchronisation type field

Select SMS Select Yes in the Include in sync field, type SMS into Remote database field, type Normal into Synchronisation type field Select Connection settings Type 1.2 into Server version field

Leave the Server ID field blank Select your Data bearer Select Always ask in the Acces point field Type http://www.phonecopy.com/sync into Host address field

Type 80 into Port field Type your user name into User name field Type your pasword into Pasword field Select Yes into Allow sync requests field

Type No into Accept all sync reqs. field Type No into Network authentic field. Select PhoneCopy Choose Options and select synchronise

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.
