And thence to many other phones and devices
PhoneCopy.com is cross-platform. In addition to providing a nifty, advanced web app, it supports close to 1500 different devices (including tablets, and Mac and PC computers).
Until recently, iPhone and iPad users could sync into PhoneCopy only their contacts. That has now changed—with the release of a companion app, PCalendars, which opens syncing of calendar events to all users of iOS devices from iOS 4 upwards.
Once are calendar events synchronized into PhoneCopy.com, not only are they accessible in the web app—they can be synced to any other device for which PhoneCopy supports calendar synchronization. This includes many Symbian smartphones and advanced feature phones, such as Nokias and Sony Ericssons.
Syncing of calendar events between PhoneCopy.com and Google Calendar is also possible.
We hope you’ll like our new addition to available syncing options. If so, please be sure to vote for it in iTunes. Your feedback is welcome: please use support contact within the application.
It happens commonly: a Mac user gets a new iPhone and would like to fill it with contacts already on his Mac. That should be possible through iTunes, but users often find themselves unable to set the transfer up.
This is when PhoneCopy applications come to the rescue: one for your Mac, and one for your new iPhone. Use the one for Mac first, to sync your contacts into PhoneCopy.com; then set up PhoneCopy app on your iPhone, and transfer your contacts from PhoneCopy.com to your iPhone.
Apple now also provides iCloud, for which one needs a Mac OS X Lion (from update 10.7.2 upwards), and iOS 5 on iOS devices. PhoneCopy applications do not have these limitations: PhoneCopy for Mac runs on Mac OS X from version 10.5 (Leopard) upwards. If you’re sticking with, say, Snow Leopard for some more time, we don’t mind; and PhoneCopy for iPhone can be installed on any iOS device (including iPads and iPods) from iOS 3.0 upwards.
Even if you do have Lion, you may find that PhoneCopy provides some nifty, handy control over your contacts: such as detailed history of changes you made to the contacts, with option to revert any one change—available in our web app at PhoneCopy.com; or a special folder that keeps everything you ever deleted, just in case you should need to restore that one contact deleted by mistake—also available within your account at PhoneCopy.com.
Should anything go wrong with your contacts on your iPhone, iPad, or on your Mac, PhoneCopy.com will keep your contacts safe.
It was close to the very end of the last year when we could announce passing an important milestone: 100,000 registered users of PhoneCopy.com.
Last night, the count just went above 110,000. That is an increase by full 10 percent in a mere month!
We are very excited about this growth. It is thanks to all of you who like PhoneCopy, who find it an indispensable service, and who do not hesitate to recommend this phone data management solution to your friends, family, colleagues, and to just about every one who values his contacts and possibly other phone content.
Also, we are not far from reaching 150,000 synchronized devices; we expect to pass that figure in about a week. Furthermore, we are close to having confirmed 1400 various devices as working with PhoneCopy.
What if you lose your phone?
Do you ever dread what it would be like to suddenly not have your phone? Surely, smartphones cost money. But what do your data cost? Especially your contacts? Would any money buy them back?
Relax. There is a solution: PhoneCopy.com.
Once you have synchronized your contacts (and possibly other phone data, depending on what your phone can do) into your account at PhoneCopy.com, you can rest easy—they are safe there.
Even if you later do something stupid on your phone, like deleting or editing something by mistake, you will always be able to find it in your PhoneCopy account—if it was the kind of data that you had synchronized.
One of the strengths of PhoneCopy is that it keeps track of the changes you made to your contacts in-between synchronizations. The technical people like to call this a “history of changes”. Should you realize that a change you made was in error, PhoneCopy allows you to revert that change—to go back to any previously synchronized version of the contact.
(Look for a little clock up left when displaying/editing the individual contact within the PhoneCopy web application.)
PhoneCopy even keeps data you deleted—in a special folder, as a precaution. They no longer synchronize to your phone; they are only kept in PhoneCopy as your archives, in case you should ever need them again. So long as they are kept, you can choose to restore them, at any time. (Only if you manually choose to delete them “permanently”, will they be gone for good.)
Synchronize to PhoneCopy, and you will never lose your data again.
Has it been the upcoming Nokia Belle?
A mysterious device synchronized with PhoneCopy over the weekend. It did so three times, and every time successfully, we should add.
The device identified itself as ‘Symbian^4’.
Or more precisely (for the technically inclined) as: nokia,m:mb-symbien^4,fwv:,swv:v 52.0.101
For what we know, Nokia is going to release ‘Nokia Belle’ update soon. Has it been it? They may have dropped the Symbian name in their marketing, but it appears the system still calls itself Symbian^4 deep within.
And what’s with that misspelled ‘Symbien’, anyway?
While we often tout the number of devices PhoneCopy supports, truth is we can synchronize with nearly anything out there, even with those phones and systems we don’t yet know about.
Welcome to our brand-new PhoneCopy blog! We’re excited to have this opportunity to share with you some good news on PhoneCopy, and we will also blog whatever you might find interesting or helpful.
How did we do in 2011?
Pretty well, it turns out! More than 100,000 people are now syncing to PhoneCopy their roughly 133,000 devices in total.
Over 100,000 of them are Apple devices, especially iPhones—there are now about 70,000 happy iPhone users who find PhoneCopy preferable to iSync.
PhoneCopy, however, supports more than 1300 different phone models and other devices, including your PC or Mac.
PhoneCopy.com has been visited by 400,000 people in the year 2011; they viewed the website eight million times, and transferred 335 GB of data. PhoneCopy now grows by two to two-and-a-half million new contacts per week!
PhoneCopy users come from all over the world—be it New York, Berlin, or Kolkata.
If you like PhoneCopy, be sure to tell your friends how great the service is!
