Phone Backup Issue

Phone Backup Issue

I finally got a memory card for my phone and tried to perform a backup. When I inspected memory card it shows no Contacts, Messages, etc. How do I get the Contacts to be backed up on my memory card?

 

An editorial note: I am really disappointed in the Nokia documentation. I have searched for specific items of interest (e.g., backups) and find no, or totally insufficient information on a function that is built in. Really horrible technical writing, especially from the perspective of a new user.

 

Thanks

Re: Phone Backup Issue

Are your contacts and messages saved in the phone memory or on the SIM card? You can also use Nokia PCSuite to make a backup (.nbu) and use Noki to view the contents of this .nbu.

Re: Phone Backup Issue

Thanks. I will check and see where they are stored. I wanted the capability to store them on the meory card so that I can do it more readily just in case that moment occurs that something happens I will have it easily transferable (at least in theory). As I use this phone more and more I am finding more things I either can't figure out or the documentation doesn't cover.

 

Thanks again.

Re: Phone Backup Issue

You might want to download the user guide found here: http://www.nokiausa.com/get-support-and-software/product-support/e63-support/guides

 

But be aware it is over 140 pages if you are going to try and print.

If I have helped you with your problem in some way, please take a little time and hit the kudos button in my post. Without your feedback, I don't know if I am being helpful or should just be put out to pasture. :smileyhappy:
