Backup contacts from phone to computer

Backup contacts from phone to computer

I have a 6300 and I thought I could use PC Suite to backup my contacts from the phone to the computer. This was also going to enable me to edit my contacts on the computer and then transfer them back to my phone. Or am I wrong? Is there another way?

Re: Backup contacts from phone to computer

Hi younso

Are you using the latest PC Suite 6.83 rel_14.1?

I refer you to: http://europe.nokia.com/A4144913

which shows the available features for your phone with this version.

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

Fixed it. I had all of my contacts on my SIM card and that is why they were not visible in Nokia Phone Browser.

Another easier way is to do backup is through zyb.com. Its pretty easy and simple and it allows contacts to be edited and retransferd to your phone. just check ou the list of their supported phones, i think they have 6300 supported by zyb.

Re: Backup contacts from phone to computer

It looks like it cannot be done. If you see the help on PC Suite it can be done. But then you cannot find the menu items that it talks about in the help. To calrify it I called the Nokia ME helpline. The Zombies in there are so dumb in that all they know to tell you uninstall and re-install the PC Suite. I even tried the newer Ovi suite. It does not work either.

 

Has anyone ever done this with a Nokia phone?

Re: Backup contacts from phone to computer

You can edit the contacts in the PC Suite when the phone plugged. When doing a backup via pc sutie, it will generate a .nbu which is not editable. Instead of the backup-the-edit step, why not try edit-then-backup. It's fit well into the pc suite workflow.
