great option for someone like me who loses her cell phones every now and then. Would help save a lot of time trying to find no.s and storing them again.

Contacts data storage

The best bet to store the contact information is to use a PDA like Palm Tungsten/Palm Lifedrive, PDA-phone like Palm Treo 650/700w or a Windows Mobile based PDA-phone from Samsung/ HP/ Toshiba/ O2 XDA and many others. These give sync compatibility with Palm Desktop / MS-Outlook respectively. Moreover "Keyring" software for Palm allows cryptographic saving of credit card numbers and sensitive financial data, with a password encryption.
If your mobile phone has bluetooth or comes with a USB/serial cable, backup the cellphone to the computer using the same, as this will allow restoration of data in case of phone/sim loss or corruption by viruses.
NEVER EVER go in for a simple digital diary - you are bound to loose data if you miss out replacing the batteries at the proper time or in a proper manner, since there is no sync capability or backup in these cheap yet inefficient digital diaries.

You can always write the phone numbers in a address diary, available in market for Rs. 10. This is so smalll that one can even carry it in their wallet.

cell phone backup

hey, easy way is to use an un-used SIM to copy the phone book entries. It can serve just like the pen drive. you can take it anywhere and use it anytime!

Backing up your cellphone

All your ideas are really good and useful.

My piece of idea is very simple and the most reliable for it can never get lost due to technical snag or anything.

It is record every new contact, phone no. and other details in your diary or a Note book, which you have in your office desk or home, every 15 days.

backing up your cell phone data
by S.Dayanand on Jun 13, 2006 09:58 PM

What i am currently doing is - i have 2 nos., of phone memory cards (for NOKIA 6600) and frequently take back ups on both the cards. One card is in the phone itself and the other at home in a safe place. Even if the phone gets stolen/lost i have a backup at home !!

You can use service provided by service provider. As in my case I am using Airtel Service for backup cellphone at Rs. 30 per month.

Backing up cellphone data.

Hi there,

Why not backup your data onto a SIM card instead? I am doing it quite regularly. I have 3 SIM cards... I am using the older ones to backup my current phonebook. SMS messages are not important for me.
Just use the Copy option in Nokia cellphone.
Copy option in address book gives you choice of copying data from phone to SIM or SIM to phone.
Try this.
Basic understanding of SIM installation is required nothing more!!!!!!
Orange SIM cards have a capacity of 16k as compared to Airtel which has 32k memory.
Orange SIM can save 100-150 nos. compared to an Airtel SIM with 250 nos.
Only care to be taken is dont misplace your backup SIM card.
