Red face Ovi Sync settings required after a hard reset....

I used to use the Ovi Sync but obviously since the hard reset, all of my settings have gone from my N85
I can see all of my contacts etc online however I cannot find the settings for my handset anywhere.
As far as I can see, it is not possible to initiate a sync from the PC interface so I'm in a bit of a catch 22.
On initial registration you recieve a text with the settings, problem is that I can't seem to find any settings to add manually. Are there any anywhere?
The set up wizard asks for the name of the Contacts data base on the server aswell as the calender and notes databases.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers guys

I'm guessing, just from problems I worked through first setting this up, that you need to remove your device and reregister it and get a new SMS to save. That shouldn't remove your data from the website, but I don't know that for sure. I assume you would use this same procedure if you had a new device and wanted to sync your data to it.

If you do this and it works, please post.

That worked a treat, Thank you for the tip.

I have no idea what is in that text message but it worked I suppose it verifies the device thus stopping anyone from syncing their phone to your backup if they get to know your password. Not sure!

But I'm up and running again. Thanks
