Why to Use Mobile Contacts Backup Software?

Every mobile phone or smartphone has a sort of its own backup solution; however, phones changes often on a regular basis, and many people have more than one mobile device, so using many different tools instead of one unified backup solution can be distracting and uncomfortable.

For Android users, the highly effective tool called Titanium Backup can save all smartphone data (including phonebook backup) on a PC. The main problem is that tool requires the root privileges to use. Not every user wishes to jailbreak a smartphone, and this is an action spoiling a warranty.

How to Backup Phone Contacts via Handy Backup

To backup and restore contacts, firstly plug your phone to the PC via USB and select the mode of connection turning your phone into the standard USB devices. This action connects your phone memory (and every flash ROM card inserted to the phone) into a separate external drive.

After establishing the connection, follow next steps to save your phonebook backup and other data:

  1. Start Handy Backup. Create a new task by using a control button, a menu item or shortcut keys Ctrl+N. Choose a backup task type.
  2. On the Step 2, select the Computer option and open the plugged phone as the drive (find it by the letter indicated and/or by the name given automatically for most phones).

Choose phone as the drive

  1. Select data for backing up (such as phone contacts backup) by marking the checkboxes near the name of each file or folder. For most phones, the name for phonebook is obvious.
  2. You can select other drives linked with your phone (i.e. memory expansion cards). Each of these cards (almost never more than one) is displayed like a separate drive.
  3. Proceed to the next step and choose the backup storage for your phone contacts and other data. Handy Backup allows you to make a big choice between different storages.
  4. On the Step 4, select full backup type. Set up keeping some versions of your contacts if you need for it. Then proceed to the Step 5 and choose compression and encryption options (again, if you feel these options are necessary for your backup).
  5. We recommend no scheduling phone contacts backup. Instead, select an automatic execution for your task each time you plug your phone to some USB slot in your computer.

Starting backup when USB drive plugged

  1. Finally, give your task a name and finish the creation. Your task can backup all contacts automatically for you. To start it, just connect your phone using the USB cable with the PC where Handy Backup executes.

You can restore phone contacts via Handy Backup, using the same principles as described above for setting up the restoration task. Note also that Handy Backup keep unencrypted data preserving the native data format; therefore, you can copy or view your data using the standard file tools.
