Hello,


We're looking for a solution that would allow our users to
backup their contacts over the internet to a central
repository.

Could Afaria be used for such purpose? We're using symbian
phones.

The documentation of backup manager mentions that it can
only backup files from a given path, however I'm not sure if
this could be used for merely backing up the contact db.

I really mean a backup solution and not some sort of a
synchronization.

Thank you

I believe the Symbian contacts database is called
Conatcts.cdb. You would have to use the device file manager
(show hidden files) to determine the path, but Afaira should
be able to provide a backup of this database by using
Session Manager - Get File from Client Event.
