Android and iOS are a class apart but yet they cater to the same audience. Someone who can afford an ios device can also afford an android. However when you want to switch between these two mobile operating systems, you are going to face a lot of problems.
iOS is a very strict operating system which doesn’t provide much control to the user. On the contrary Android is much easier to use and provides a lot of freedom to the user. These two operating systems are not much cross compatible and it’s ultimately the consumer who always has to face many problems due to this.
The problem starts when you switch or upgrade to a new phone. Naturally the first thing that you will need to be transferred will be your contacts. If you are switching from iOS to Android or vice versa, then you are going to have a hard time to get your contacts transferred to your new phone.
They are some free apps available for both the devices which can help you with transferring contacts, messages, videos and photos. But unlike any paid software out there, they don’t provide an hasslefree one click experience. Although you will be able to get your work done in the end, but you will come across many problems too. So if all you need is an hasslefree method to transfer contacts, photos and videos between Android, iOS, blackberry or nokia phones, you can make use of Wondershare’s Mobiletrans.
Once Mobiletrans is installed on your PC, connect your old and new phone with your PC and then run the utility. The tool should be able to identify your phones and then download the required drivers.
If you have connected an android device or two of them, then you should enable USB debugging on them from the developers options. In case you need some help, here’s how you can enable USB debugging on phones running on Android 4.2 and above.
I tried the trial version of Mobieltrans which had a maximum transfer limit of 5 contacts. But if you purchase the full version of this utility, you won’t have any restrictions. Mobiletrans can transfer contacts, text messages, calendar, call logs, apps, photos, music and videos between compatible phones. However when it can’t it will disable the respective option. For example android apps cannot be transferred and run on an iPhone, so in such a situation the apps transfer feature will be disabled.
Apart from the above features, you can also use Mobiletrans to create a backup of your phone and restore it later on another phone. This can come very useful when you need to exchange your old phone for a new one. In such a situation you can create a backup of your old phone before exchanging it and when you get your new phone, you can restore your old phone’s contacts from the backup. Last but not the least the utility also allows you to permanently erase your old phone, which can come handy if you are going to sell your old phone.
So ultimately Mobiletrans is the only utility tool you will ever need when you have to transfer contacts, messages, videos or photos between phones running on Android, iOS, Blackberry and the Symbian OS. The paid version of Wondershare’s Mobiletrans is priced at $19.95 for the one time license and $39.95 for a personal use license which can be used on single PC with lifetime validity.
