How to backup contacts, calendar and notes from Nokia Series 40

PhoneCopy.com is a web service which is free for personal purposes (with few limitations). This tutorial will show you how to backup your device. The whole process can be completed in few 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.

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 Settings Select Configuration Select Personal config. sett. Select Add

Select Synchronisation Select Account name Type PhoneCopy

Select Server address Type http://www.phonecopy.com/sync into the server address field

Now you need to fill your username and password.

Select user name Type your username into the username field Select password Type your password into the password field

If you're only saving contacts, fill contacts only and you can leave out some of the steps.

Select Contacts database Choose Database Address Type contacts into Database address field

Or you can backup you calendar, tasks and notes as well.

Select Calendar database Type calendar into Database address field Select Notes database Type Notes into Database address field

Choose Access Point and start synchronization

Choose Access Point Go back to the Personal accounts and select PhoneCopy -Options Go to Settings - Sync and backup Select Data transfer

Select Server Sync Select Synchronised data Check the items you wish to synchronize

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.

phone association

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.
