  • Then select the destination device (e.g. My Computer) and press Select.

Back up using Sync

You can also back up your Phonebook and datebook entries to an Internet server (Called the Internet Sync Partner), to synchronise your entries on both your phone and a PC.

To do this you will need to know the server URL and the Data Paths (The folders below the URL, where the data will be stored).

  • From the Standby screen press Menu (The [–] button), then highlight Settings (Figure 4).
  • Then scroll down to Connection and press Select (Figure 5).
  • Select Sync (Figure 6) and choose [New Entry] (Figure 7).
  • Enter the server details, including the URL and Data Paths.

To synchronise files with the chosen Internet Sync partner, select the file then:

  • Press Menu (The [–] button) and select Settings (Figure 4).
  • Choose Connection (Figure 5) then Sync (Figure 6).
  • Then select Sync partner (Figure 7).
