What is a .CDB file?

The .CDB file extension is associated with a type of file known as a Symbian Phonebook Database. This type of file is specifically created by mobile devices that operate on the Symbian OS, which includes many older Nokia phones. A .CDB file stores important information such as phonebook contacts. This includes details like people's names, their addresses, and their phone numbers.

The main purpose of a .CDB file is to help users manage their contacts. It is commonly used for backing up all the contact information from a phone to a computer. This is useful for keeping your contact data safe in case your phone is lost or damaged. Additionally, it allows for easy synchronization of contacts between a computer and a Symbian OS mobile device, ensuring that both devices have the same up-to-date contact information.

To open a .CDB file, you can use specific software programs designed for managing files from Nokia phones. The most commonly used program is Nokia PC Suite, which is an official tool provided by Nokia. It offers a range of features for managing phone content, including contacts stored in .CDB files. Another program that can open .CDB files is Nokisoft Noki, which is a third-party tool that also specializes in handling data from Nokia phones. Both of these programs allow you to view, manage, and synchronize your phonebook data easily between your Nokia phone and your computer.
