Back up messages and transfer E72 Contacts to Android on a Mac

Hi to all Apple Mac folks who are like me – having troubles and issues trying to transfer their contacts/phonebook from their Nokia E72 to their new android phone. I’ll just make this brief and direct.

My old phone: Nokia E72 and my new phone: Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I’m using a Macintosh OS. This works on a PC too, but I believe Android is soooo much easier on a PC. I think Apple makes it hard for Android users to sync with a Mac so you can stick with all their products.

  1. Download the app, Youlu at the OviStore and then run it.
  2. Turn on your WiFi or your cell data, and on the settings tab, click “Sync with Youlu.com”. They would ask you to register your cell number and create a password.
  3. On sync, you can either choose contacts, calendar, or both on syncing it with your web account.
  4. If you want to transfer your messages, click Backup/Restore SMS. They would also sync all your messages on your web account.
  5. Now, log on to http://www.youlu.com and login with your number and password. Youlu will open a page where you can see all your contacts and messages. Click on the little tool icon and then you can now export the contacts as a .CSV file.
  6. Import the .CSV file of your contacts on your hotmail/gmail account.
  7. On your android phone, sync your contacts with your hotmail/gmail account and you’re good to go!

I haven’t tried exporting my messages from Youlu so I am not sure if I could transfer it on my Android too. If you try it, and it works, tell us! You can also download youlu on your android phone from the PlayStore and I think you could actually sync from the app. I am not sure though. :p

Hope this helps you guys! Feel free to comment, suggest or ask at the comment box. 🙂

Orchid from the backyard

Orchid

Orchid

I was told to take a picture of my mom’s orchid and here it is! I have always been fascinated by them and its just wonderful. Unlike other flowers, they stay long before they wilt. So next time you would want to buy a flower for your mom or special people in your life, try orchids! 🙂

The Gettysburg Battlefield Monument

One of my trips included going to this very historical place in Pennsylvania. It commemorates the Battle of Gettysburg which is one of the biggest and deadliest single battle of the American Civil War. The place is huge and had lots of monument which I haven’t had time to actually read everything written on it. I just took lots of pictures and decided to just research it later on. I most like the architecture and structures of monuments there. I still have to learn more about the history though. 😉

The Griffith Observatory

The Griffith Observatory

I was very lucky to be able to go to an observatory since I love looking at the stars and trying to figure out the constellations. As I went at daytime, I really didn’t get a chance to see it first hand; but seeing everything inside is fortunate enough. So, as you see in the picture, that’s me and the observatory behind me. Lots of people were jogging over there and like me, there were lots of tourists too.

The Griffith Observatory, from what I have learned during my day trip there, is one of the most popular attractions in California. It’s located at Mount Hollywood and overlooks the Hollywood sign on the other side of the mountain. You would also see Los Angeles City’s top view (which I think is really cool). It is named after Col. Griffith who donated the land for its stature. Exhibits inside includes the planets, stars, moons, discoveries, telescopes, and more about astronomy. It’s also a famous place for filming movies including Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.

I would go there once again, if given the chance, to see meteor showers and see the constellations at night. 😉

Georgetown

One of the interesting things I have gone to is Georgetown in Washington D.C. It’s a historic neighborhood and both a commercial and entertainment district. Me, my mom and my aunt have been to the shops and restaurants and it’s very beautiful, both in the morning and night. I like the night more than the day time since I see more people and it’s more interesting. Maybe going there during the day is a good way to breathe, refresh and relax.

The picture shows the PNC bank at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and M Street. Lots of high-end shops and restaurants are situated there and it’s also the home of Georgetown University (where I really like the sunset over there) and the Old Stone House. Some famous persons who lived in Georgetown are Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Bell, Francis Key and John F. Kennedy. Many movies were also filmed at Georgetown.

Abandonment Issues

I feel kinda sad the past few days and today, when I woke up from nap, I felt really sad. I feel neglected and that I am unworthy of anything. And that I don’t deserve things to go well and that it must be too good to be true. It took me from 6pm to 8:30pm to contemplate things and it did made me more sad. I felt like God is silent and wasn’t giving me any answer. But I know that God has not abandoned me. I know that he’s just silent making me reflect and learn more about things and somehow I made positive thoughts by the end of my “reflecting”..

First, it made me think about the plant and the root that I was telling you about. I used to kinda push people away, or I let them get close but not really close. I suddenly realized that me having this kind of things are rooted to all the relationships – may it be family or boyfriend/girlfriend relationships. I think it made me fear more like if one person can discard you, we fear that other people would actually do the same thing. And it’s bad because sometimes it goes deep within the person and sabotages relationships. It’s amazing how fear blocks us from seeing possibilities and it clouds our perceptions about the people around us.
I also thought of it as a temporary experience and it directed to emotional and spiritual growth. I believe that things like this will come to an end even if it’s not so soon. It’s one of God’s trials and it always has a purpose where we can benefit from its results. Sometimes God uses this too to make us aware of His presence in our life. “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” – Romans 8:18
With making the unconscious things conscious, I hope to become better and feel better.
