User comments

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.

  • Is there a possibility to upload contacts in .csv or vcard format to the database? Target is to simplify the first sync. gerald45, 25/10/2021
    • Hi, just log in to your online account and on the Contacts page, there is Import Contacts from vCard item under the MORE ACTIONS button which you will see on the top of the contacts list. PhoneCopy support team, 25/10/2021
      • Many thanks! It just worked fine!

        Best regards

  • 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? unknown user, 10/08/2016
    • Hi, unfortunatelly Nokia doesn't allow to upload SMS back to the phone even we are sending it back during synchronization. The phone doesn't accept it. Sorry. PhoneCopy support team, 10/08/2016
