  • Is there synchronization support for Nokia S30+ devices? For example the new Nokia 6310 even has Wifi support, it would be really great if you could support those phones for contacts sync!

    and for the context of my problem

    • I am sorry but Nokia S30+ doesn't have any synchronization protocol which we can support. PhoneCopy support team, 07/10/2021
  • To can you change date format from to ?
    Otherwise some contacts in my phonebook marked borned in future.
    For example 1957 in phone becomes 57 on synchronize to site and then becomes 2057 on synchronize back to phone. It's not good!

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi, I have C5.00 and it says feature not supported. I triple checked the settings and are OK. Can you please check if any phone tried to connect to server? what do you recommend? I tried to go on internet and it works.
    Thank you!
    edvardek, 06/01/2017
    • Hi, it seems your phone doesn't reach our server at all. Which part of our guide shows mentioned error? PhoneCopy support team, 07/01/2017
      • hi. can you recheck now please. i sync contacts but nothing is synced online, i did however synced notes. to sync sms's it shows system error. :( thanks edvardek, 07/01/2017
        • Yes, you synchronized it to server. But please set your phone as explained in the guide. You set it FROM DEVICE and we recommend BOTH WAYS. Moreover you set same name of two databases (Contacts.cdb and contacts.cdb). For the next sync switch off SMS sync. You can set it later when you will have successfully synchronized contacts. PhoneCopy support team, 07/01/2017
  • i synced my contacts to the sever and when i need to copy them into my Lumia 650 contacts its showing Attention required and not syncing my contacts from the server.
    Need urgent Help on this.
    luvmesush, 04/12/2016
  • Dear PhoneCopy!

    I synchonized my account for weeks successfully from an E51, it worked with a Server ID what was given (it contained only lower- and uppercase), and with more databases (Contacts, Calendar, Notes, Cont. Groups, SMS-es and Bookmarks.
    MMS not, that's only mobile operator ad)

    But now I changed password, and nothing synchronizes, nor if I leave an only one database and even the Server ID is deleted.

    I tried network authentication, but it didn't work.

    My question is:

    What is a secure password for a PhoneCopy account, because I will set my pw that way.
    csontos.antal, 03/12/2016
    • I forgot the error message:

      Invalid password

  • Hello. I have Nokia 515 and success importing 330 contact items to PhoneCopy server.

    muraviev2204, 19/09/2016
    • Hello,
      the Nokia phone is unable to process large contacts photos from your other device. Please try to remove contact photos on the web uploaded from your other device.

  • Dear PhoneCopy,

    I'm trying to sync my contacts from an iPhone 6S to a Vertu Signature. I managed to sync all my contacts from iCloud to PhoneCopy server but could not sync from this server to my Vertu. The following message kept coming up "Data transfer not possible. Check data connection". Please be kindly noted that I could still browse the Internet using either Wifi or 3G connection. Your prompt support would be much appreciated.


    trungdoan, 29/08/2016
    • Hi, can you please check which kind of internet connection you are using in your Vertu? Some operators can block PhoneCopy when you are using WAP connection. We recommend internet connection called Internet, GPRS or similar. PhoneCopy support team, 29/08/2016
      • Thank you for your answer. I tried both gprs and wifi bothnof which worked fine as I could browse to different webpages. However the same error message keep coming up "Data transfer not possible. Check data connection". Can you please kindly advise me what to do? Cheers trungdoan, 02/12/2016
        • Hi, under GPRS there still can be hidden WAP Access Point. Please check Access Point (also called APN) to avid WAP connection. PhoneCopy support team, 03/12/2016
  • Hi, I would like to thank those who create this 'PhoneCopy' webpage. Its really helpful. Since i'm still using Nokia E63 (a hard-core phone),its hard for me to print something. Now, I able the sync and have all the back up that I wanted. But, can we sync our photos ? azlinda, 12/08/2016
    • Hi, unfortunatelly Nokia E63 doesnt allow us access for photos synchronization. It is limit on phone side. Sorry. PhoneCopy support team, 12/08/2016
  • My contacts are already on my sim card, and also on the phone, but it's not reflecting on the phone. It shows empty contacts. princesstayelolu, 06/08/2016
    • Hi, can you, please little more explain us how PhoneCopy can help you? PhoneCopy support team, 08/08/2016
  • I am trying to copy the contacts from an old Nokia 2760 phone to a Samsung Galaxy s6. Unfortunately, the service has been transferred to the s6 and the Nokia can no onger connect to the web in order to upload the contacts list. I have the Nokia PC backup file (*.nbu) on my PC. Is it possible to upload an *.nbu file to my PhoneCopy a/c and then download to the s6? Thanks. luciedavidson, 12/06/2016
    • No, we don't support .NBU file, but if you will export contacts from Nokia PC Backup to .VCF you can use PhoneCopy for Windows for uploading it to server. PhoneCopy support team, 13/06/2016
      • Thanks. Actually, I did it by using the Nokia PC software to create a *.csv file of the contacts on the Nokia phone. Then converting the *.csv to a *.vcf file using some free software I found on the web. Then emailing that to the Galaxy s6, and then importing it into the contacts. Seems like a simple generic way of transferring contacts from one mobile to another. luciedavidson, 13/06/2016
  • Although I have memory card on my Nokia asha 308 however I am getting error message and only 59% of my contacts are being sync from the server to my phone!! isarozt, 21/05/2016
    • Hello, the phone indicates that it is full. Phone reports exactly 1000 items in the phone book so this might be a limit. Unfortunately, this capacity cannot be extended by a memory card, it is the limitation given by the vendor. PhoneCopy support team, 23/05/2016
      • Thanks so which Nokia phone that can accept Around 7000 contacts do you recommend isarozt, 23/05/2016
        • Hello,
          Nokia phones with Symbian OS were known to handle lots of contacts. But the newest device from this range is like 5 years old (like Nokia E7 and so on).

          Current phones sold under Nokia brand are simple devices and we think the limitation is the same.

          The rest of Nokia portfolio (branded as Microsoft now) is limited to Lumia devices which uses Windows Phone operating system. They are capable to hold such amount of contacts but these are modern smartphones with no link to classic Nokia phones.

    • Hi, which nokia model you have? Then you need to follow our guide and assign your synchronized phone to online profile. Then you will be able to manage it. PhoneCopy support team, 29/02/2016
      • Nokia 6233. Can you pleas share the guide to follow? Thanks. chandartrue, 29/02/2016
        • PhoneCopy support team, 29/02/2016
          • Thank you. I will go through the link and revert you for any issues. chandartrue, 29/02/2016
            • Hi,

              One more information. Yesterday I took a back up by using the username - Prathap, but I cannot create the same username same here. Please advise.
              chandartrue, 01/03/2016
              • Thanks for the information. I took back up successfully and I need to restore the same into my phone again. How to do that? Please advise. chandartrue, 01/03/2016
                • I assume you wish to transfer your contacts to another phone than the 6233, am I right? Simply synchronize the new device following it's setup guideline, associate it with your account and synchronize once more. PhoneCopy support team, 01/03/2016
  • Can I copy my text messages from a Nokia Asha 302 to Phonecopy? tam_h, 10/02/2016
