JContactBackup - Backup and restore your phone contacts without the help of a PC

Have you bought a new mobile phone? Wondering how to transfer contacts from your old phone to the new phone? JContactBackup is the easy way out, without the hassles of PC connectivity. Here is what you can do:
Thats all. You can also keep a handy backup of your contacts in a text file right in your phone. You can restore your contacts from this file any time, without needing to connect your phone to a PC.

Note that not all fields in the contact database may be supported by JContactBackup. You can choose a higher version of vCard format while exporting to include more fields, but ensure that your new phone also supports that version of vCard. Otherwise, import process might fail. You can find out the supported vCard versions in the Export dialog.

JContactBackup is free to use and modify.


JContactBackup requires MIDP 2.0+ with JSR-75 support. Check your phone's manual to know if your phone is supported.
