In the U.S. alone, over 60 million cell phones are lost, stolen, or damaged, and statistics report that only 1% of cell phone users back up their phonebooks. Information accumulated over years from friends and colleagues is lost. Cellular Phonebook Backup & Transfer Kit For Dummies provides a quick and easy solution to this problem. With just the touch of a button, up to 4,000 names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses are backed up and stored. Restoring to a new phone is equally simple-- just one touch of a button and contacts are instantly uploaded. Losing, damaging, or upgrading to a new phone is no longer a hassle. Cellular Phonebook Backup & Transfer Kit For Dummies incorporates award-winning technology and doesn´t require a computer, software, or a subscription.
CPBTKFD is a unique product that simply, safely, and securely creates and stores a backup of your cellular phonebook.
CPBTKFD is the only hand-held, battery-powered, consumer device that will back up and store a permanent copy of your contacts with a quick tap of the backup button. What's more, by simply changing detachable tips, those very same contacts are easily transferred to another phone with a 5-second press of the restore button.
Making a safe backup and transferring to another phone has never been easier.
Easy, all you need is the model number of your phone. Look up your model on the compatibility chart and see which detachable tip you'll need (if any).
CPBTKFD supports many different types of phones from various manufacturers and carriers all with one device.
Don't see your phone listed? Not to worry, we're constantly adding support for additional manufacturers and models, and CPBTKFD is as simple to update as it is to use. Feel free to check back often, or you can sign up with an e-mail address for automatic notification.
To place yourself on the notification list, please use the drop-down lists on the right-hand side of the homepage at http://dummies.backup-pal.com. Choose "Other" and hit "Go.". Make sure you enter your preferred e-mail and the specific manufacturer and model number of your phone. We'll let you know immediately when we finalize support for it.
Please Note: Not all phones are manufactured with a way for CPBTKFD to communicate with it. Due to this, not all phones can be supported by CPBTKFD.
We've made it extremely simple to use CPBTKFD by putting a tremendous amount of time into making sure that you only need to press a single button to create a safe copy of your cellular phonebook.
To back up your phone:
Manufacturers are coming out with new phone models faster and faster these days, and, at times, it can be difficult for us to keep our lists current. If you do not see your model listed in the drop down lists on our homepage (http://dummies.backup-pal.com), please select Other from the drop down lists, click GO and enter your e-mail address, phone manufacturer, and specific model when prompted. By doing so, you'll guarantee yourself an automatic e-mail when we finalize support for it.
The CPBTKFD homepage (http://dummies.backup-pal.com) has two drop-down lists for the manufacturer and model number of your phone.
If your phone is not on these lists, please choose Other as appropriate and click GO. Please make sure to fill in a valid e-mail address where you can be notified and the full name of the manufacturer and full model number of your phone.
After your phone is supported, we'll be sure to contact you and let you know.
Besides easily moving your contacts to a phone from another carrier, using CPBTKFD has many advantages (instead of swapping your SIM card around):
To store a safe copy of each phonebook, you would need two CPBTKFD units. To simply transfer contacts from one to the other, you would need only one CPBTKFD.
Due to the immense amount of work and ingenuity that has been built into CPBTKFD, these types of transfers are handled quickly, efficiently, and automatically. Below is an example of how CPBTKFD will handle this situation depending on your phone type:
Phone #1 supports multiple numbers per name:
Phone #2 supports one number per unique name:
In this case, CPBTKFD works a little magic to make sure all the numbers are saved properly by creating some new names:
Phone #3 supports the same name multiple times:
CPBTKFD lists the name multiple times in a row with each number:
No matter which phone you come from or the compatible phone you're transferring to, CPBTKFD already knows the optimum processes for handling the safety and security of your data.
Your contacts will not be overwritten or erased. We are in the business of preserving contacts and as such have made the decision to remove this potential 'accident' from happening. CPBTKFD will automatically recognize that it has been reset and refuse to overwrite the phonebook on your phone. Yes, this means you'll have to delete your contacts the slow way . . . sorry.
Not to worry, CPBTKFD stores your phonebook information using memory hardware that does not require batteries to store information. Your contacts will remain safe whether CPBTKFD has batteries in it or not.
CPBTKFD may not be properly connected to the phone and is having trouble communicating with it. Please fully charge your phone, remove the battery for one full minute, turn your phone on, and wait one minute before connecting CPBTKFD and retrying your last operation.
The phone that CPBTKFD is connected to is currently unsupported. To see if upgrades are available, please choose your manufacturer and model number by using the drop down lists on the right hand side of http://dummies.backup-pal.com and select the Go button. Should you find that we don't currently support that model phone, please be sure to add yourself to the notification list so we are able to contact you as soon as we do.
There was an error of some kind during the backup or restore of the phonebook. Please fully recharge your phone, turn it off and back on, and wait for it to be fully ready before retrying the last operation. (Notice: Some phones require up to 60 seconds after being turned on before they are ready.) Your backup or restore should now function properly.
The repeating red/green flashing is a notification that your phone is set to a data mode that is unusable by CPBTKFD. Please refer to the Setup/Connection guide for your specific manufacturer for simple to follow instructions on how to change your specific phone model to the proper data mode. After your phone is set to the proper data mode, retry the last operation and CPBTKFD will work as it was designed.
On rare occasions the software on a phone, for any number of reasons, will behave unexpectedly.
Fully resetting the phone before retrying the last operation will usually set the phone back to factory operation and allow a successful Backup or Restore operation.
To fully reset your phone:
No, this won't cause CPBTKFD any trouble.
CPBTKFD backs up the information from both the SIM card in your phone and the memory location in the phone itself.
When these contacts are transferred to a phone that does not have a SIM card, all of the contacts are stored into the phone memory location of the new phone.
As an additional feature, all of the contacts that came from the SIM card will be marked with an asterisk (*) so you can tell them apart from the contacts that were on the phone itself.
You'll rarely see this issue and the fix is quite simple.
Simply start your backup or restore process again and press the adapter tip and phone together firmly. This will create a better connection, and you should see CPBTKFD switch to a quickly flashing green light indicating the process is continuing normally.
When the orange light is flashing, CPBTKFD is creating a data connection with the phone. On rare occasions, CPBTKFD will encounter an intermittent connection and have difficulty finishing this step. Many manufacturers have switched to USB type connections on their phones to prevent their customers having this issue with newer phones.
We've had a few reports of issues arising with several Motorola V3 model phones. Please ensure that CPBTKFD has good batteries and that the phone is completely charged before using. Remove the battery from your phone for one full minute, replace and turn phone on, and flip or slide the phone open if necessary. Allow one minute for the phone to completely turn on. Repeat last operation with CPBTKFD. Should you continue to receive 4 red flashes, you may need to use an M3 tip. Please be sure to contact email@example.com for further assistance if necessary.
Your CPBTKFD batteries are low. Please replace with fresh batteries before starting any further Backup or Restore operations.
Short answer? No. If you've made sure your phone is fully charged and reset before backing up or restoring and you still get 2 red flashes, the M2 tip is having problems talking to your phone. This problem is common on older Motorolas and can most often be solved by firmly pressing the M2 tip and your phone together during any backup or restore operation.
