You can sync contacts, calendar events, and notes between your phone and Nokia services. This way you always have a backup of your important content. To use Nokia Sync, you need a Nokia account. If you don't have an account, access a Nokia service – you are asked if you want to create one.

If you use Nokia Sync to automatically sync your contacts with Nokia services, do not allow syncing with any other service, such as Mail for Exchange, as there may be conflicts.
