Noki v1.2 version support Symbian phone book database Contacts.cdb file located in C:\System\Data. Contacts.cdb can be copied to PC or backuped into the .nbu file using PC Suite. Noki support both of them.

1)if you'd save Contacts.cdb in a separate file and want to view the content.

Just browse and open the .cdb file as other backup files then save the .cdb in your preferred format (txt, excel or html). Noki will parse the phone book database and convert the phone book entry to standard vCard files (.vcf). You can then extract them to single vCard files and copy the vCards back to your phone via PC Suite's contacts manager to safely restore your phone book database.

2) if Contacts.cdb is packed in the backup file (.nbu)

The Contacts.cdb is under "contacts database" directory. It can be converted just like all other files. .cdb can also be converted into vCard files for restoring back to the phone via PC Suite.

To view the content of the .cdb file, you can choose "extract to..." in the right click menu to extract the Contacts.cdb file. Then reopen it using Noki as stated in 1) above.

The v1.1 version is released with new features for better organizing and archiving the backup file:
Converting or merging phone book, SMS, calendar and memo to Microsoft Excel workbook file (.xls)

The Excel .xls file has several advantages over plain .txt file:

  • items are better organized in worksheets, rows and cols with summary
  • items can be colored for better view/print
  • .xls file has better editor Microsoft Excel (commercial) or OpenOffice Calc (free)
  • .xls file can convert to other universal formats like: HTML, XML, txt and csv (consulting the above two editors for format details).

2) Converting or merging to Html file

Html is also an easy read universal format. If you have no a decent .xls reader at hand and want a better-than-txt format, you can convert the backup file to Html. The finetuned Html file has summary, index, navigator and cursor high light:

3) Iconed windows XP tyle menu with hotkey support
