PhoneCopy is an application that synchronizes content between the user's mobile device and PhoneCopy.com server. Synchronization is performed over mobile data transfers (GPRS, 3G, 4G LTE). Most mobile phones equiped with this technology are supported by PhoneCopy. The only prerequisite is that you have data transfers active (you can verify this by checking if you can browse web and check your email on your phone). If you're not sure, contact your carrier. For data transfer you can use Wi-Fi, if it allows your device.
It is possible to conveniently browse and edit your device data at PhoneCopy.com website, downloading the changes to your device at will. That way data is kept up-to-date and safely archived on our server. You can also download it into your computer. You can synchronize your contacts, calendar, tasks and notes. In some mobile phone models, you can even synchronize bookmarks, text messages, pictures and other items.
- Principle of synchronization
Synchronization means updating your data both on PhoneCopy server and in your phone. Recent changes including edit and delete actions are transferred both ways. For instance, if you update John Doe's phone number in your mobile phone, on your next synchronization his phone number will also update in PhoneCopy.com, making sure all data is safe. Similarly, if you delete John from your phone, next time you synchronize John will get deleted from PhoneCopy.com. But that is not all, PhoneCopy.com stores history of each synchronized item, so you can restore your deleted data anytime you want.
Your first synchronization is a special case, as it is basically a one-way backup of your mobile phone data to your PhoneCopy.com profile.
- How much does the service cost
- We provide the PhoneCopy.com service free of charge with reasonable limits for personal use. The only thing you will have to pay is data transfers (GPRS, 3G, LTE), the price of which is set by your carrier. For instance, synchronization of 500 items from your mobile phone to PhoneCopy server will cost you under 1 USD. Follow-up synchronizations will only cost a fraction of that price, because the amount of data is significantly lower. If you are on a flat rate plan, synchronization won't cost anything beyond your monthly fee. Nowadays, carriers offer packs of mobile internet. The first synchronization need 0,1 MB, next synchronization need only 0,01 MB with mobile internet. Or you can use Wi- Fi for synchronization which will be free. We recommend to you PhoneCopy Premium for corporate use and for synchronization of more than 500 items.
