I think it's a posh way of saying "turn it off and then turn it back on again"

I've had too many bad experiences with PC Suite to trust it at all. Too many times that my phone book has been lost. These days my PIM all goes to Mobical and my phone gets backed up onto the memory card, although this, too, has bitten me in the past. I've found that the best thing after a system restore is to take the time and reinstall all your stuff from scratch. There's no better way to get back to having a glitch-free and zippy device. Restoring PIM from Mobical is easy and, so far, reliable.

"may I know what "power cycling the phone" means ?"

Me thinks that means taking battery out and putting it back - other restart methods tend to leave something running/uninitialized/etc. and therefore are not necessarily thorough enough.

Scheduling backup?

Does anybody know of a backup utility which can be scheduled?

I was using BackupBuddy on my Palm Treo, and loved the fact that my Treo was backed up once a day without having to do any manual steps.

This backup phone memory and restore doesn't even work on the n95s Welcome and Settingwizard 2 app. Tried it 2 months ago. Backedup, did a 3 finger, restore and zip, nadda, gone.

Today I tried the method mentioned here. Took the backup of phone on memory card. And then formatted my phone...... But when I tried to restore the backup, to my shock, I am not finding the option of Restore backup.... What should I do now??? Is all my data gone or I am doing something wrong. By the way my Phone is N82 and firmware 20.

My 'Notes' did not survive the latest Nokia E90 firmware upgrade. I did a backup beforehand, ticking all the boxes. Did the firmware upgrade then the restore, but not Notes. Active Notes are all there, but not the normal ones.

Am I the only unlucky one?

Nice, For Contacts use SyncML

The trick mentioned in the article has saved me after some of the "not so successful" experiments.

As for contacts,Calendars, Notes etc I use scheduleworld sync ( www scheduleworld (dot) com ). Scheduleworld services are free, btw and they use Standard SyncML.
This way my data survives a reset, memory card failures, Phone changes etc....

Angry Warning: DID NOT WORK

I lost EVERYTHING using this method - I did a restore and NOTHING came back - not my calendar, bookmarks, contacts, SMS...NOTHING.

when MMC or SD card restore fails,

you can use Noki ( to extract/parse contacts, text messages, MMS, email etc out of the backup.arc file on the MMC or SD card.

There's a how-to on: backup.arc recovery (


data, firmware, repair, survive, upgrade
