  • Hello. I can not add my new phone Samsung GT-BT2710 and the synchrisation is not posible. Pls help. samadejobi, 17.04.19
    • HI, it should work. Did you follow the guide from bottom of the following page? To you have data plan active on your SIM card?
      PhoneCopy support team, 17.04.19
      • I followed the guide and I have data on my SIM. I can browse other sites. May be I did not get the Device Name. I put "GT-B2710" or what the device name should be? The result of last synchronisation said "Unknown certificate authority" The one before said "Sending failed" Pls help me. samadejobi, 17.04.19
        • When I tried to assign the new phone, see the error below;

          We have a record of successful synchronization, but the authentification data do not match. Username or password in the device is different from the username and password entered into this form.

          Check if the username and password in the form above match phone settings.
          Change the username and password settings in the form to be consistent with the data in your device.
          If this process will not help, or you do not know which password is set in your device, change both your username and password in the device and synchronize it again. If the change of password in the device will not be enough, type the same details to the form.

          In the case of persistent problems with assigning your device, please contact us.

            • Hi, it seems you mistyped password in your phone, but now it works. Please check your profile, there are both phones assigned. On next Samsung Sync you will get contacts synchronized to your phone. PhoneCopy support team, 17.04.19

    • Hello,
      only contacts from phone internal memory are synchronized. If your contacts are stored on a SIM card, you have to move/copy them to the internal memory first.

    • Sorry, but your phone doesn't support SyncML which is basic principle of PhoneCopy synchronization. PhoneCopy support team, 05.08.15
  • HI team,

    I synced my iphone with your server, all fine. Now I followed the istructions for my samsung GT-S5611, but when I try to syncronise says "unable to sync Profile not complete"
    meteo, 03.08.15
    • Actually, just realized that in the samsung "Sync Category" - Contacts I had to actually type "contacts" as a remote name!! It worked smoothly, a life saver!! meteo, 04.08.15
  • I'm having an issue syncing my phonecopy contacts on my Samsung B2710.

    When I click syncronize, it says "connected" but then right after it gives me an error saying "unknown certificate authority"
    My username and password are definitely correct and I've put the settings carefully several times.
    yizzf, 10.07.15
    • Hello,
      "unknown certificate authority" means bad username/password on Samsung phones. You can edit the password for your Samsung on the website. Visit Settings -> Devices, then click on Edit your Samsung.

      But now I can see quite recent successful synchronization. So you probably solved your problem.

    ety1910, 04.10.14
    • Hello,
      it is not possible once all these contacts are stored in the same contact database. Our app does not provide any filtering.
      PhoneCopy support team, 08.10.14
  • Hello, So I bought a new phone, downloaded PhoneCopy and the first thing I did was press Synchronize. Because of my stupidity, my contacts don't exist on the server now (since it synced with a blank phone) or the new phone. Can I reverse this or do anything to retrieve my contacts? rimoabdallah, 27.09.14

  • How do i Undelete the contacts that my phone deleted by mistake? thereverend, 27.07.14
  • 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
    • 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
  • I have synchronized contacts but I can't synchronize my sms. Please help me. manzer, 19.06.14

    Could you pls help to me pls get all my contacts on my mobile device.
    pratham87, 11.05.14
    • Od course we can. But you can recover it from Deleted Contacts folder in your online profile on . Also we found you did it by yourself earlier than we were able to answer your request. PhoneCopy support team, 11.05.14
  • 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).

  • I have a Samsung SCH s720c. I have 2 e-mail accounts. Phone copy sync to my Gmail account (1 contact). I went to settings at Phonecopy changed my e-mail to my charter account. Noted no change. Still shows my gmail account. Not able to transfer contacts. Please advise evrgrn247, 07.03.14
    • 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

  • Hi Please help me.
    I have samsung GT-S5570 (Samsung Phone Android) and did my mobile contact list backup with phonecopy. While selecting an option to take a backup I could select either contact list from Phone or from SIM. I want to do backup from both phone and SIM. Can you help me out?
    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.
