Wondershare MobileTrans Review: Quick & Easy cross-platform mobile-to-mobile data transfer
Who doesn’t like switching to a new phone? It’s just the data transfer tasks which take a lot of your time and effort and at times are reason for a headache. While transferring music and media files is not all that difficult as mass storage mode is available in all mobile OS, transferring messages, contacts, call logs, apps and reminders could turn out to be a nightmare especially if you’re changing phone platforms.
Although, there are many data transfer software available that claim to solve all sort of data transfer issues, we have come across Wondershare MobileTrans, which seems to be offering everything that one would need.
Wondershare MobileTrans can transfer contact details, call logs, text messages, music, videos, pictures and more across mobile operating systems, as well as back up your smartphone data to your PC for future use, with just one click. Apps can also be transferred, but there is a limitation that it can only be done for Android.
Using MobileTrans you can transfer data between Symbian Smartphone, Android and iOS. Syncing your contacts to a new phone would be easy, if you’re using service like Google to manage them. When transferring contacts, it just doesn’t transfer names and numbers, but also transfers job title, email address, company name, and more.
The software supports more than 2,000 different brands of phone from HTC, Apple, Nokia and Motorola to Samsung, and Sony Ericsson.
To use MobileTrans, you will need to connect both the source phone as well as the destination phone at the same time. Data transfer can take some time depending on how much amount of data is being transferred. If you are transferring over 12,000 texts from iPhone to Android phone it may take only a few minutes. However, it may take about an hour to move 1300 or more photos between phones. Well, we guess time doesn’t bother much when you get a perfect end result.
We found that MobileTrans took minimal time to connect and copy the data from one mobile to another which is just great. Another feature we found appealing about this software is its user-friendly layout and design which makes it possible for a person with little or no knowledge of using the software to work over it with complete ease.
MobileTrans also allows you to permanently erase your old iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android phone if you decide to sell it, donate it or gift it sans your personal data.
As far as pricing is concerned, we found Wondershare MobileTrans is a bit expensive at $19.95 for one-time use. The personal use license costs $39.95 and it will enable you to transfer data from the old device to the new one. It would be worth going for personal use license as it will be a lifetime license. Furthermore, it would be of great use if you switch your mobile devices too often. Businesses can opt for the $399.00 license that allows for unlimited phones on 1 PC.
The thing which doesn’t go in favor of Wondershare MobileTrans is its lack of support for Windows Phone OS. Also the software is not suitable for users who are planning to exchange an old phone for a discount on a newer one as it requires both the phones to be connected at the same time.
MobileTrans has all the features that promise a hassle-free phone switching experience. So, we would suggest you to give Wondershare MobileTrans a try the next time you change your mobile phone.
