    • Hello! Try our new MAC beta version -
      Put the ZIP on the Desktop, unpack it. Don't replace old PhoneCopy app in the /Applications folder, run PhoneCopy BETA from Desktop temporarily - after proper final AppStore update, you can delete temp Desktop BETA version. It's still officialy beta, so please report errors directly via email to

  • Is there a synchronisation option for multiple calendars on the PhoneSync Mac app? Currently I've only managed to sync on a single calendar on my mac which isn't of much use as I organise calendars into various categories. droid001, 11/05/2014
    • Sorry, currently we don't support more calendars. PhoneCopy support team, 12/05/2014
      • Hello,

    • I'm trying to synchronize from phonecopy server to Mac OS. Where is the Synchronization menu?

      If possible I'd love to synchronize from Phonecopy server to Microsoft Outlook, also.

      • Hi, when you install PhoneCopy for Mac ( ), it has common Mac style menu and also when you click on top bar icon you will launch menu as well. For Windows users we have PhoneCopy for Windows ( ) which synchronizes contacts in form of VCARD to pre-selected folder. Then you can transfer it between VCARDs and Outlook. Native support for Outlook will be available later. PhoneCopy support team, 06/06/2011
    • To export contacts from Mac to PhoneCopy server (web) start PhoneCopy for Mac and select "Synchronize with direction selection" in the "Synchronization" menu. You can also use a small circle icon in the Mac menubar. Are you satisfied (did you find an menu item)? PhoneCopy support team, 26/05/2011
