Chennai, March 20 - There is good news for Hutch customers. India's leading private telecom service provider Tuesday announced a unique phone back-up service for its customers that will help them save critical phone book data, but also preserve features like SMS, MMS, ringtones, games, photos and videos.

Hutch customers subscribing to this service no longer have to worry about losing their contacts and phone numbers if they lose their mobile phone, the company said.

Hutch customers can take their phone back up in two ways - through GPRS-enabled phones and SMS on non-GPRS phones.

The phone back up service works on all other non-GPRS phones through SMS, a Hutch statement said here today.

'This service will offer tremendous convenience to our customers in situations where their handsets get lost or damaged, leading to loss of phone numbers, contact details and other critical data,' Harit Nagpal, marketing director of Hutch, said.

Once installed, the application automatically backs up data from the customer's phone to a server and the customer can access the data with the help of a username/password generated by the application.

The cost of subscribing to the phone back up is Rs.50/- per month for GPRS users, while it is Rs.30/-per month for non-GPRS users, who access this service through SMS.

Hutchison Essar has over 25.34 million mobile users in India.
