      • I wasn't able to sync my contacts from the desktop to my Note 4. Is two-way sync only available with premium? I just couldn't find any option to sync to my phone. This is urgent as I have no contacts on my phone. How can this be resolved? dianamkemp, 05.04.15

  • Samsung galaxy GtS6102, 05.02.15
  • While syncing contacts from Sony Ericsson J10i2 to Samsung GT-S5610, some characters in contacts name/surname were not transferred to destination phone as they should be (Croatian characters). Although the contacts look good on phoneopy web admin, on destination mobile GT-S5610 Croatian characters are replaced with garbage. How to fix this? I tried exporting to CSV with intention of replacing Croatian characters with English ones however there is no option to import CSV (?). Please advise. mdobsa, 23.01.15
    • Sorry, there is not option to import CSV as CSV can have different formats and it is difficult to follow it. In the there is "remove accents" under "more actions" on contacts page. This will help. Phonecopy Support-Team, 25.01.15

  • hi im using samsung galaxy SIII mini GT-I8190 i restored factory settings after doing so i lost internet connection and it shows "Invalid IMEI" even if i dial *#06# it replies IMEI null so how can i solve that problem guys? dully.luziga, 12.07.14
    • Hi, with Galaxy SIII you don't need IMEI form. Just download PhoneCopy.apk from Google Play, start it and log in as existing user. Then you will select From Server to Device option and your contacts will be synchronized back to your phone. Phonecopy Support-Team, 13.07.14
      • but how can i download phonecopy.apk from google store while no internet connection? dully.luziga, 13.07.14

  • I thought this program would bring in contacts from my galaxy into my ipad and it did but it deleted my ipad contacts. How can I get them back? I tried the restore deleted contacts but your site said there weren't any deleted items to restore. phine4now, 23.06.14
    • Samsung saithu, 03.07.14
    • Hi, there is not an iPad assigned in your profile then we can't research what happened. Anyway if you select Two way synchronization it will synchronize contacts from phonecopy to device as well as contacts from device to Deleting contacts from device can occur only in case you select single directional synchronization from Server to Device but before contacts are deleted you are noticed by red alert. Phonecopy Support-Team, 23.06.14
      • I did select one way synchronize but never received a single red alert of any sort. Can I undo? phine4now, 23.06.14
        • If you used single directional synchronization from Server to Device, there is not possiblity to undo. Undo works only i case you delete anything on the server because server has Deleted Contacts folder. Sorry. Phonecopy Support-Team, 23.06.14
          • Do since nothing was deleted where did it go? It looks like all my emails synchronized ... I didn't want that...I just wanted contacts added to my pad not over ridden. Can you tell me where my ipad info is? phine4now, 23.06.14

  • While synchronising the app says

    "Sync Failed

    An unexpected error occured. We will take a look at it. Please try again later.

    Your contacts may be duplicated.

    You can use web based duplicity manager"

    I did and fixed all duplicates. The website says now there is no problem. But after that I'm still not able to synchronize my cellphone with the website. What should I do?
    aashilmathew, 03.06.14
    • Hello,

      problem is not in duplicities, there is trouble in sychronization. Duplicities are only repercussion.

      Your version of Android OS is 4.4.2 KitKat.

      Unfortunately, there are big changes in this new release of Android. Since this release, only default sms application can write (enter) sms to your phone (PhoneCopy is not default sms app in your phone).

      Problem which causes failure of PhoneCopy is just mentioned writing of sms.

      Your trouble can be (temporarily) resolved by disabling sync of sms.

      To disable synchronization of SMS from your Android phone, in the PhoneCopy app, press Advanced & Account -> Use existing account -> uncheck "Enable synchronization of SMS" checkbox -> press Login.

      After disabling of sms sync you will sync only contacts. Sync of contacts is working properly.

      We work on solution of this new Android's limitation and we will release new version as soon as possible.
      Phonecopy Support-Team, 03.06.14
      • but what to do for sms sync? it is necessary now as im selling my old phone. is there anything u can do at the moment? aashilmathew, 03.06.14
        • The mentioned problem occurs only when PhoneCopy tries to write (create) sms to your device.

          You can back up sms by using of one-way synchronization from your phone. It backs up contacts and sms from your phone to PhoneCopy server.

          After this, (contacts and) sms will be backed up on PhoneCopy server and will be ready to sync to your new device until the mentioned limit of Android will be resolved.

          To one-way synchronization from your phone, in the PhoneCopy app, press "Advanced & Account" -> "One-way sync" -> "This device » server" -> "Agree and continue".

          This operation deletes all contacts and sms on the server and newly creates all contacts and sms from your phone.

          If you have some contacts and sms on the server which you do not want to lose you can restore them (after one-way sync) from "Restore deleted contacts" or "Restore deleted sms" on PhoneCopy website.
          Phonecopy Support-Team, 03.06.14
  • I just got my S4 some days before and tried to synchronize. The app on the mobile said this:

    "Sync Failed

    An unexpected error occured. We will take a look at it. Please try again later.

    Your contacts may be duplicated.

    You can use web based duplicity manager"

    I did and fixed all duplicates. The website says now there is no problem. But after that I'm still not able to synchronize my cellphone with the website. What should I do?

  • I cleaned up my contacts list on the server. How do I send this list to my Samsung Galaxy S2 phone? andi.pettigrew, 21.04.14
    • Hi,
      in the PhoneCopy for Android application there is single direction synchronization under account&settings. Select from Server to Device and your contacts will be copied.
      Phonecopy Support-Team, 21.04.14
      • Hi - I followed your directions - one way sync from server to my device. Before synchronisation, phone copy server had 378 contacts, gmail had 1168 and lots of dupes. This is why I cleaned up the server. AFTER sync, gmail had 1546 contacts. The warning for the one-way sync said that it would remove all the contacts from the device, but it didn't! Now I have even more duplications than before. What is going wrong? andi.pettigrew, 22.04.14
        • Hi,
          it looks you synchronized contacts from the server to another contacts database. On the PhoneCopy for android settings there you can set which contacts database you want to synchronize. I expect you synchronized another than gmail one. Please change contacts database and cleaned contacts will replace contacts in the gmail account.
          Phonecopy Support-Team, 22.04.14
          • OK limited success - it says it's put 378 contacts on my phone, but my phone is still showing all the google contacts as well. How can I get rid of those from my phone? andi.pettigrew, 22.04.14
            • We recommend turn off Google contact sync and then continue with previous steps.
              (Advanced & Account > One-way sync > Server » this device). Using more than one of synchronization service simultaneously causes collisions and duplicities. Try this, please and send us your feedback if it was useful or not.
              Phonecopy Support-Team, 22.04.14
              • Google contact sync off, and message says all contacts deleted from phone during one-way sync, but Google contacts still showing after server - phone sync. Any more ideas? andi.pettigrew, 28.04.14
                • Perhaps this is a misunderstanding, but one-way sync from "Server » this device", first deletes all phone contacts in the selected account, and then creates contacts stored on the server.

                  After this synchronization, you should have status of your contacts in the phone (in the selected account) the same as on the server.

                  The message you mentioned looks like this:
                  "All previous contacts were removed in this device. "x" contact(s) (from server) were created."
                  Phonecopy Support-Team, 29.04.14
                  • No misunderstanding - on the PhoneCopy screen, it says that my Samsung phone has the same number of contacts as my PhoneCopy Server account and during the one-way sync, I watched the number of contacts reduce to zero, then restore to the pruned contact list from the server. However, when I go to Contacts on my phone, it is full of duplications and the Google contacts are still there, so I have no idea what is going on here! andi.pettigrew, 29.04.14
                    • We checked the logs of your synchronization and the "Samsung Phone" account was the last used account in your synchronization - no Google account. "Samsung Phone" is a local account with contacts in your phone.

                      Are you sure, you tried to sync according to the aforementioned procedure with a Google Account?

                      If you want to overwrite Google contacts, you have to use Google account as "Android account to sync" when login to PhoneCopy (Advanced & Account > Use existing account).

    • Hi, if you will go to application settings and select Existing user, there is check box which will enable SMS synchronization. Phonecopy Support-Team, 16.03.14
      • Sorry for being dim... I am running Android4.0, please spell it out - I cannot find any check box here on this site or on my phone that will enable SMS. There is nothing, no "existing user" I can find in settings here on this site or on my phone under the Phone copy Application that will do this!

    • Hello,

      if you want to sync contacts, you have to select right account where your contacts are stored. This account you have to select in the box "Android account to sync:" at login in PhoneCopy app on your phone.

      If you are currently logged in with Google account and it doesn't contain your contacts, try to login with another account. In PhoneCopy app, go to Advanced & Account" > "Use Existing Account", select the right account in the box "Android account to sync:" and then Login again.

      The "charter" email address which you set in PhoneCopy settings is used only for password reset and optional notifications.

      If you have further questions, please contact

  • Hello PhoneCopy team, I am using Samsung Galaxy ACE(S5830), There seems to be no option in the application where I can sync contact from server. I was using iPhone earlier and this option was there in settings. Also, I deleted all my contacts from my phone and did the syncronisation but it also got deleted from the server. I have to restore all the contacts from the deleted contacts. Can you please help me understand if we can do sync from server to Phone? unbekannten Benutzer, 25.09.12
    • Hi, we are preparing this feature for android as well but we expect usage by advanced users only. On android phone you can select for synchronizatoin any contacts database for example gmail. Then it can be dangerous when by mistake you will select Server to Device and you will delete all your gmail contacts. Anyway when you delete any contact on phone it will be synchronized to PhoneCopy and if you will delete any contact on PhoneCopy it will be deleted on your phone after next sync. For this purposes you have available Deleted Contacts folder. But when you use your phone in common way e.g. adding, editing, deleting single contacts you don't need to use single direction synchronization. Phonecopy Support-Team, 26.09.12

    niceananch, 09.07.12
    • Hi,
      you need to make two synchronizations. One for Phone and second for SIM. For future we recommend you to merge it and have only one contacts list which is more easy to maintain.
