Symbian is an operating system that is used by a great number of mobile phones. With relation to PhoneCopy the big advantage of Symbian based phones is the ability to synchronize not even contacts or events but also other data types as SMS or MMS. PhoneCopy already supports SMS management and backup and we plan to support MMS in the future.
The Symbian operating system has several versions from which the most widespread is probably S60 third edition e.g. Nokia 5730 ExpressMusic, Nokia E75, N96, N86, N79, Samsung GT-i8510 or GT-i7110 and S60 fifth edition e.g. Nokia 5800 ExpressMusic, Nokia 5530 ExpressMusic, Nokia 5230, Nokia N97, N97 mini, X6, Sony Ericsson Satio or Samsung i8910. In all it encompasses tens of models also referred to as Smartphone.

  • I am trying to get back to my good old Nokia E72 from Android and I purchased PhoneCopy premium as I have more than 500 sms. The upload from Android to PhoneCopy worked great and I managed to get the contacts into the E72 using Sync, however I cannot get the SMS back from PhoneCopy to the E72. I have specified "sms" as the database; am I doing something wrong? victor.arroyo, 10/08/2016

    • Hello, we set the phone type which is provided by the phone itself. Syncml protocol has limited support of phone types so in most cases the type is changed to some preexisting category, which is cellphone, typically. PhoneCopy support team, 23/06/2014

  • Hi! Is it possible that I sync my nokia e75 to phonecopy, then I restore my phone to factory settings, then I sync my data on phonecopy back to my e75? Thanks! acm, 23/02/2013
    • Yes, it is possible. But when you will reset it to factory settings you need to delete E75 from your profile and associate it back. Contacts will remain unchanged but your profile will take the phone as new device. PhoneCopy support team, 23/02/2013
