How to Backup Your Mobile Phone Contacts Via Bluetooth

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
It all depends on which mobile phone you have. There are some which can not be backed up, and others which are really easy.


  1. Install your Bluetooth hardware and its drivers. Download the latest versions if necessary.
  2. Install the software provided by the mobile phone manufacturer. If you dont have a CD, you can download it fairly easily from the internet. Make sure you know the make and model number of your mobile phone to make your job easier.
  3. Switch on Bluetooth on your mobile phone and make sure that it can be seen by other devices.
  4. If you are using Windows XP, click on your start menu, go to control panel, then Bluetooth devices.
  5. Click on Add device and after it finishes the search, select your mobile phone.
  6. It might ask you for something called a passcode. Here, you can select any one of the options in the list. I usually prefer proceeding without a passcode.
  7. If you have selected to use a passcode, enter the same code on your mobile when asked.
  8. Once this is finished, you have successfully paired your computer and phone.
  9. Now run the mobile phone software you installed. Depending on the software, you will see options to either backup or sync your phone.


  • Make sure your phone supports Bluetooth.
  • Make sure your computer is Bluetooth enabled.
  • Always download latest versions of drivers and software. It makes the whole thing easier
  • Bluetooth range is limited, so ensure that the phone is not far away from the computer.
  • Most lower end phone models offer no connectivity at all. Avoid these if you plan to connect it to your computer.
  • If you plan to use a passcode, remember what it is during the procedure
