How to start?

Nokia N97

Primarily in this case we will be using Nokia N97, a cellphone with Symbian operating system. We've chosen this model, because the setting is very similar to many more phones from this vendor. The list of officially supported devices is here.

Registration on Phonecopy.com

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.

Nokia N97 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 user manual. 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:

Select Settings Select Connectivity Select Data Transfer Select Sync

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.

Select New Sync Profile Start synchronization wizard Type Phonecopy Select 1.2

Select data to synchronize Fill: Contacts Fill: Calendar Fill: Notes

Fill: SMS Select Internet Enter http://www.phonecopy.com/sync Leave it empty

Fill username and password and then you can start the synchronization. You can select the data to be synchronized before starting. If you are transferring only contact, choose to transfer contacts only. However if you want to use PhoneCopy as a backup platform and you have made the corresponding settings, choose Calendar, Tasks and Notes as well.

Fill your username Fill your password Finish wizard Start the synchronization

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.
