Back up your contacts to Ovi by Nokia

If you back up your contacts to Ovi by Nokia, you can easily copy your contacts to a new phone. If your phone is stolen or damaged, you can still access your contacts list online.

Select Menu > Contacts and Options > Ovi sync.

If you allow automatic synchronisation, all the changes you make in the contacts list are automatically backed up to Ovi by Nokia.

You need a Nokia account to use Ovi. If you do not have an account, create one at You are also prompted to create an account, if you access any Ovi service using your phone.

If you use Ovi Sync to automatically synchronise your contacts with Ovi, do not allow contact synchronisation with any other service as there may be conflicts. Ovi Sync for contacts is not available if you have activated contacts synchronisation in Mail for Exchange.
