It's time to leave Nokia Sync
This might be a bit off-topic - and I don't mean it as a rant either - but since this club started with the Nokia 808 PureView, I feel more or less obliged to warn you that Nokia Sync will be taken down within a month. Here's what to do, it's all in the email you may have missed.
Dear Nokia mobile phone customer,
We wanted to let you know of important changes affecting people who use Nokia Sync on Nokia Series 40, N9 and Symbian phones. Nokia Sync is the service that synchronises your contacts, calendar appointments and notes between your phone and the cloud.
We are planning to discontinue the Nokia Sync service on 5 December 2014. After 5 December 2014, you will not be able to access your data through the Nokia Sync service. We strongly encourage you to export and/or migrate your data from the service before this date.
Beginning today, you can use the following options to ensure you can continue to access your data. This includes the option to export your data so it can be imported into other services, or migrate your data to secure, cloud-based services from Microsoft.
Option 1: Export
Option 2: Migrate
In the interest of information privacy, all data that is stored in Nokia Sync will be destroyed following termination of the Nokia Sync service.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any further questions, please see our CARE support site.
Microsoft Devices Group
For some reason, Microsoft is sharing two links to the very same page.
But after you sign in, you find both options after all:
I haven't been using Sync personally, but I can imagine quite a few of you here have or still are in fact. This is just the cloud synchronisation being taken down and although it might be frustrating another service is going to disappear, it's not the end of the world - your Symbian smartphone will still work. It's just important for you to start making a local backup of your device.
