How to do back up on N8?

[ Edited ]

Hi

sorry if i am little silly but how can i make back up to my N8?

nokia suite has a nice option but the phone is not supported

at nokia updater i dont see this feature

at ovi suit i see software update on top with green icon option but i dont see not back up

at the n8 i have not note any program with back up as it was on my 5800( i think is there this option)

Re: How to do back up on N8?

I use two methods, if you connect to Ovi suite (always sync contacts and messages) and select tools you have an option to backup. Also use my Ovi account to sync OTA, log on to uor Ovi account, choose contacts, set phone and set up sync, Ovi will send sync settings to phone, make a note of pass code to activate , then you can back up Contacts, Calendar and Notes !!

Good Luck

If u have a memory card inserted u can take backup of phone memory from file manager application itself.
I think u can't backup ur apps ..u can only take backup of contacts,calender,notes,bookmarks etc

I tend to save all app .sis files on my computer and re-install them when required, rarely do a full backup of the phone as always have a couple of contact backups in ovi account or just re-sync with Ovi suite to restore them, everthing else can just be added manually from PC, plus a full backup and restore can take longer than just setting up the phone, but that's just me !

 If you use Ovi suite to backup it's your decision where to store the backup on your PC. And yes, all your photos can be backed up if you wish.

Re: How to do back up on N8?

Is there any way I could get the OVI Suite to back up my picture messages? I was able to move the text messages to the OVI suite, but unable to back up my picture ones.
