Unlike other backup services, you don't have to worry about where and whether it was stored. After logging in to your profile via the Internet browser, PhoneCopy will show which contacts, etc. have been changed or may have only been successfully synchronized. For example, even if you delete some contacts, messages, etc. from your phone, you can restore them from the directory of deleted contacts and you will always have access to your data.


You can sync anytime, from anywhere for free *. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection or your regular data plan.


Unlike backup to your PC, PhoneCopy is designed as a secure cloud service for instant access anytime, anywhere. This means that your data is always online and accessible from any device connected to the Internet.


PhoneCopy Galleries allow you to create galleries from photos that you have previously backed up from your mobile phone. In the gallery, you can link thematically related photos or photos from one place you've visited. The gallery can be private only for invited visitors, accessible after entering a password, or even completely public, and this will then be included in the gallery overview.


- On Android we currently synchronize contacts, SMS messages, images and videos.
- Different applications use different formats for the date. We do not support all of them.
- PhoneCopy does not support the date of birth without a year.
- Free version does not fully support all functions.

* The FREE service is intended for personal use with maximally two devices and a limit set of 500 stored contacts or SMS and 1 GB of storage space for photos and videos. Restoring SMS back to the phone is part of the PREMIUM account.

PhoneCopy has always worked well for me.. This app is easy enough to download & get all setup & running itself, on an automated, regular syncing schedule.. After the initial setup, your work is basically done, because the app will do pretty much any/all of the rest of the work for you: automatically backup & restore any/all new contacts, sms, photos, videos, etc. PhoneCopy has kept up with all my contacts & photos, without fail, through the last 4-5 cheap android phones I somehow destroyed!!

Almost perfect, using it for many years, it's been great, especially the online editing is very helpful. There is one serious issue that I've come across twice in 4 years (because it's been so long): when I tried to restore my contacts to the new phone, the interface (highly unintuitive) doesn't warn you NOT to sync, so toi end up DELETING your online backed up contacts, by syncing with the empty phone. Luckily, they can be restored, but I kind of had a serious panic attack... please fix it...

The whole phonecopy system is unique and great. I use an android and an old nokia phone, couldn't find any service to synchronize in both until I found phonecopy. Now I only need to add remove a contact from any one of them (website, android, nokia java) and the remaining two updates automatically hassle free. The app design is minimal but not that great, that's why gave a 4 star.
