WaveSecure for Nokia N8

How to back up your Nokia N8

If you’re looking for a way to back up your contacts, calendar, photos and even videos then look no further. Software, developed by WaveSecure, a company newly acquired by McAfee is a great way to back up your data and is provided free of charge for selected phone models and countries of Nokia phones.


WaveSecure Backup Beta is readily available for the Nokia N8 and is totally free of charge, as the service is in beta, so you get the complete 1-year subscription totally free – so get it whilst it lasts. Unfortunately, the application is only available in the J2ME version and isn’t yet released for Symbian 3 devices.

Even though it’s a J2ME version, it still works on the Nokia N8 and its navigation buttons and the application itself work perfectly fine. This back up application is very good and worthwhile of the free download and subscription – you will be required to sign up for a free beta account upon its soon-to-be release on Symbian 3 devices.

You will be required to provide an email address and a unique six digit PIN when you activate the application, which is a one time process. You will also require a data connection in order to activate the application and start backing up your precious data. When activated your can access your account at the wavesecure.com website and view all uploaded data.

Since the app is in Java format, there will be limited capabilities and when you login to your account, you will see many of the features sadly disabled. Once the Symbian 3 application is finally released, I hope that we will have access to such features once it’s up and running.

The backing up process through the WaveSecure application is totally manual (java apps will have limited functionality because of security reasons) and you will also need to launch the application before you can begin to backup data – but that is to be expected.

If you get the application, please give us your thoughts and feedback and let us know how this application has helped you to back up your Nokia N8.
