  • I backed my contacts up to my computer (BlackBerry Link) and traded my phone in but now I cannot get them to transfer from my computer onto my new Samsung. Is it possible to do that using phonecopy? mariavolk, 09/09/2016
    • Hi, it depends which format you used to store your contacts from Blackberry. Our recommended way is to export it from BlackBerry to vCards:
      Then you will be able to synchronize vCards to using PhoneCopy for Windows and when your contacts will be on it is easy to transfer it to any device.

    • Sorry, but permanent delete means PERMAMENT DELETE. For security and privacy reasons we don't keep any copy of contacts which were requested to delete it permanently. PhoneCopy support team, 06/09/2016
      • Thanks for your reply Ok I understand that but now if I want to transfer freshly it will transfer phone contacts to server? ishtee, 06/09/2016
        • Hi, i recommend you to use Single directional synchronization FROM DEVICE TO SERVER which you can select in the phone application. PhoneCopy support team, 06/09/2016
  • What happens after end of free period or we exceed free limit . does my contacts work on phone or deleted ramaraot, 10/08/2016
    • Hi, when your end period ends you will not be able to synchronize your phone with Your account will be blocked but not deleted. PhoneCopy support team, 11/08/2016
  • Hi, I have a Blackberry Q10, I synced my contacts but the calendar items are not syncing. Could you tell me what should I do?
    Also, I understand that for Blackberry you cannot transfer the Notes. I have them saved into .csv file. Is there any way to sync or import those?
    dianadelidakis, 26/04/2016
    • Hi, when you will follow our guide for Blackberry you will get synchronized both contacts and calendars.
      PhoneCopy support team, 27/04/2016
      • I did follow these instruction from start, the Calendar slider button in the Account is active. It's blue. Still, there are no calendar items saved into the account. I do have the tasks inactive because I dont want to transfer any tasks. Is that why it doesnt work?
        dianadelidakis, 27/04/2016
        • Hi, sorry, it is misunderstanding. The guide which i sent you allow to synchroniza calendar from server to device. Also once you set it it allows to synchronize events back to server. But it doesn't export calendar events FROM device to server. PhoneCopy currently doesn't provide service which allows to export calendar events FROM device TO server because of technical limitations on BlackBerry OS. Sorry PhoneCopy support team, 27/04/2016
          • Thanks. Is there Any file format that can import as calendar entries? I NEED my calendar and notes backed up onto phonecopy, so what kind of file format is accepted or allowed to be exported to phonecopy? dianadelidakis, 27/04/2016

  • it only lets me copy blackbery contacts 614 but I actually have 1190 in total, how can I amend this?? sharmito, 26/01/2016
    • Hi, we looked you are using Server To Blackberry synchronization only. If you need copy contacts FROM blackberry you need use our application for BlackBerry.
      PhoneCopy support team, 26/01/2016
      • thanks, I did that as well and it doesn't work, it won't let me copy all the contacts, please advise sharmito, 26/01/2016
        • it only lets me transfer BLACKBERRY CONTACTS, but not the contacts like local directory, etc sharmito, 26/01/2016
          • Yes, PhoneCopy for BlackBerry lets you synchronize only BLACKBERRY CONTACTS due to limits of BlackBerry and it is mentioned in specification of app.

            If your other contacts are in other account, you can simply import them to BLACKBERRY CONTACTS and then perform the sync.

            Otherwise, you can use the Activesync with your PhoneCopy account. From our logs we know that you already chosen the use of the ActiveSync.

            In case of ActiveSync, import your contacts into already created PhoneCopy account in your BlackBerry device
            After adding your contacts, they will be synchronized to server automatically.

            How to import contacts (for BB OS and higher):
            1) Go to your contacts list in your BlackBerry device
            2) Longly click on one contact, options appear
            3) Choose Select more (last option)
            4) Select all contacts you want to move to ActiveSync account
            5) Press Copy to
            6) Select the checkbox with your ActiveSync account with name PhoneCopy
            7) Press Done

  • I transferred my contacts from Blackberry Z10 to Phone Copy. I transferred the contacts from Phone Copy to my iphone5 and lost all contacts that were on iPhone 50 total. The sync was set to transfer and save both ways. Can I retrieve the lost contacts from iPhone? lccrbl, 06/10/2015

  • When I open thee Phone Copy app from my phone it still shows that I only have 1 BlackBerry contact ambisidhu, 12/04/2015
    • Hello,

      application PhoneCopy for BlackBerry supports only backup of items from BlackBerry contacts account.

      This means that you have only one contact in BlackBerry contacts account.

      The remaining contacts are stored in another account(s).

      We recommend to import the remaining contacts in to "BlackBerry contacts" account and then backup.

      Or you can use the Active sync for automatic two-way sync using our "How to..." manual
