I want to backup my contact, there are 619 entries

- Create a backup from phone memory to memory card

- It can only copy 45 entries, the rest was not copied

 

Please help me to create a full backup of my contact.

Well, I'm not sure of E72 settings (Doesnt have one), but you can sync your contacts with Ovi Suite and you'll have all of them on your PC.

Re: Nokia E72 - cannot create full backup of contact

Alternatively, you can do a backup to the memory card (as opposed to copying the contacts to the memory card, which is what you were doing).

 

Menu > Office > File mgr.

 

Options > Back up phone memory

 

All your contacts, messages and other user information and files will be backed up to an archive on the memory card, which can be restored at a later date if need be.

Re: Nokia E72 - cannot create full backup of contact

The copy function copies to the SIM not to the memory card. Naturally your SIM only has very limited capacity. So there is nothing to fix.
To do a backup you need to use the backup to memory card function or synchronise your phone with your PC.

Dear Sir,

 

How can one save the contacts directly to the memory card?
