    Hello All,

    I'm having a problem backing up my contacts to my PC.

    I have PC Suite downloaded and an IR link working it's just I can't see the
    contacts. I can find the messages and the pics etc but nothing else. I
    checked the data was saved to the phone and not the sim card and it was and
    I really can't think of what else it could be. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Martin

    What phone do you have? If it's one of the ones at the following page, you
    could try that instead:

    My PC Suite creates a file named PhoneBook.ncc. Do you see
    anything similar?

    Hi David,

    No, I've done a search on the machine and looked in the PC Suite folders and
    found nothing.

    What I was expecting was to be able to actually see the contacts in the
    Contacts folder on the phone as individual files. Can you do this? When I
    use the Contacts Editor I can see the ones I create with that but not the
    ones created on the phone. Again I have checked that they are saved to the
    phone and all OK.

    Martin

    I'm not sure I even understand your question. We may be using dissimilar
    phones. Mine is a 6360 (TDMA). I have never used a "Contacts Editor";
    all my phonebook entries were made using the phone. When I run the
    Nokia PC Suite "Content Copier" (the only part of it that I use), it creates
    several files (phonebook, calendar, etc) with .ncc extensions. I then put
    them into one .zip file for backup purposes, in case my phone is destroyed.

    Re: Backing up contacts

    Yes, it seems we were. The problem I was having is that I hadn't got
    anything to back up even though there are over 70 contacts on the phone's
    memory. I simply couldn't see them in the phone's contact folder -- it was
    empty, blank, void, without content, unpopulated! :-)

    I think the problem may be solved however. I have just installed the latest
    version of PC Suite (6.5) and voila! There they are -- now all safely backed
    up on my PC. It seems it was a (as MS might put it) a 'feature' of the
    previous version of the software.

    Thanks for your help.
