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.
