Automatic Synchronisation tab
You can specify if you want Nokia PC Sync to perform synchronisation automatically. These settings are personal for each individual phone. You can have different settings for each phone you connect.
Do not synchronise automatically
Nokia PC Sync will not synchronise automatically with your phone. You will have to start the synchronisation manually whenever you want to synchronise a phone with your PC PIM .
Synchronise every time I connect my phone
Nokia PC Sync will synchronise automatically with your phone each time you connect the phone to the PC.
Synchronise periodically while the phone is connected
You can specify in hours or minutes how often Nokia PC Sync will synchronise automatically with a phone. This only occurs while the phone is connected. For example, you can specify that Nokia PC Sync will synchronise your PC PIM with the phone every 30 minutes. Select the synchronisation period from the Period box.
Launch Nokia PC Sync automatically on startup
Select this option if you want to launch Nokia PC Sync automatically every time you start your PC.
Conflict Resolution tab
It is possible that you have modified an item on your mobile phone and on the PC. Here you can specify whether information is to be synchronised from your mobile phone to the PC or vice versa if a field of an item has been changed on both databases. Select the database that you want to synchronise information from:
PC, a specific PC PIM application or a web browser, depending on the information types you have selected for synchronisation. For example, if you have selected to synchronise only Calendar / To-do Items, the PC PIM in use is displayed here as an option.
You can specify the direction of the synchronisation. You can update information to both directions in synchronisation, only from a mobile phone to the PC, or only from the PC to a mobile phone.
For example, if you have selected Microsoft Outlook as the PC PIM application and you select the “Only update Microsoft Outlook data to the mobile phone” option, contact items are updated from the PC to the phone. However, after the first synchronisation with this option, only the contact items that have been changed on the PC are updated to the phone. This means, that if you accidentally delete a contact from your mobile phone, the contact is not synchronised back to the phone, because it has remained unchanged in Microsoft Outlook.
You can update (“refresh”) unchanged items, too, from the PC PIM application to the phone. To do this, select the option where all mobile phone data is deleted and replaced with data from the selected PC PIM application.
A “refresh” synchronisation is only possible from PC to phone, and it is not available for all Nokia phone models. If the “refresh” synchronisation is not available for your phone model, you need to create new synchronisation settings with the “Only update Microsoft Outlook data to the mobile phone” option selected. The next time you run a synchronisation, unchanged items, too, are updated from the PC PIM application to the phone.
Sync Profile tab
Enter here the username for your sync profile if needed. If you have defined a username here, you must use the same username in the phone. If you have not defined a username in the phone, you do not need to enter it here either.
Enter here the password for your sync profile if needed. If you have defined a password here, you must use the same password in the phone. If you have not defined a password in the phone, you do not need to enter it here either.
