The SMS backup is the key feature for a lot of mobile users because short messages include important data, which should be always available and searchable. PhoneCopy offers SMS backup as a standard feature, same as contacts, calendars events, tasks and notes backup, for mobile phones that support it. SMS backup is available for example on new Nokia phones with Symbian system as Nseries and Eseries, e.g. N97 and E72, as well as Nokia 5800 ExpressMusic or Nokia 9500.

  • I have a Samsung Illusion phone and PhoneCopy premium. Can I print out my phone contacts. Can I sync my SMS (Text Messages). Thank you! radamaker, 25/05/17
    • Yes you can synchronize SMS, please check our guide: PhoneCopy support team, 26/05/17
    • Hi,
      Yes you can print your contacts. Log in to your on-line profile, go to Contacts page and there is More Actions button under which you will find Export to CSV. CSV is file which can be used in the Microsoft Excel and you can print all contacts as a table.

  • I CANT SYNC MY SMS FROM PHONECOPY TO MY IPHONE. gaurangpatel, 25/12/14
    • The application for iPhone cannot synchronize SMS, because the Apple does not allow application access to them. PhoneCopy support team, 25/12/14
      • Why is iPhone advertised on the Premium service for transferring SMS? Is that in the event that Apple changes their policy for accessing SMS some day. Somewhat misleading when I was about to purchase the premium account until I researched a little further.

        Thank you for you reply..I look forward to it.

        william.sharrow, 01/12/15
        • Hi, because Apple doesn't allow to access SMS from application we have to develop PC software which is able to get SMS indirectly from iTunes backup. Also Apple regularly change the format of iTunes backup file which is reason we have to improve it often. This was reason why we want to cover that feature from Premium subscription.
