Samsung Wave cellphone setup

To have your contacts saved you have to synchronize the Samsung with PhoneCopy. First step is to set up the synchronization on the Samsung. 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 phone manual on PhoneCopy website. But back to the screenshots now: create a new synchronization profile in the menu:

In menu press Settings Select Connectivity Select Synchronize Press Button Create

Follow the instructions to set up the connections. If you're only saving contacts, you can leave out some of the steps, or you can backup your calendar, tasks and notes as well.

Type Phonecopy Check what you want to synchronize Fill: Contacts Fill: Calendar

Fill: Tasks Enter Fill your username and passwords Select internet connection

Start the synchronization now. 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.

Save profile Start the synchronization Select synchronization category

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.
