How to start?
You need an iPhone 3G with an operating system version 3.0 (e.g. 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0 etc) and higher or 3GS, 4, 4S or 5 with any operating system version (e.g. 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.1, 5.0.1, 6.0 etc). Let us just remind you, that for now PhoneCopy for iPhone only transfers contacts. The list of officially supported devices is here.
Backup contacts from your iPhone
Run the Apple AppStore on your iPhone and search for PhoneCopy application (or PhoneCopy3G for older phones), which you can download free of charge (we've been using version 1.02 in this tutorial). After downloading and installation, go through following steps.
Now you can start the first synchronization on your iPhone to backup your data to PhoneCopy server
Now you have all your contacts synchronized on PhoneCopy and you can edit your contacts in your online account. PhoneCopy can also be used as a regular synchronization service, should you loose your phone or the stored data, or if you just run out of battery and you need to see your contacts online. Also, 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 archvie 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
Some additional tips:
Just as a reminder, the contacts are carried via your mobile phone service provider, so you need to have data transfers activated for the service to work. If you you don't have a special data scheme, your carrier will charge you additional fees (during our testing, cca 500 contacts cost approximately 1,5 USD for all the data carried during a full syncronization, service provided by O2). With PhoneCopy for iPhone we support not only iPhone but iPad and iPod Touch as well. Contact transfer is naturally also possible from an iPhone to Nokia, or you can synchronize as you wish between two or more cell phones (from iPhone to iPad, from SE to Nokia etc).
The whole transfer, including the settings, can be done in several minutes and the service is completely free.
