Review on Mobile Swap: Old Phone’s Data Transfer to the New

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Buying a new phone is always exciting, but what’s not exciting is getting the new phone loaded with data from the old phone. I have seen folks carrying both – the old and the new phone for a few weeks after the switch because they have messages, notes, images, and a lot of other important files they might need, and they mean to do the transfer “soon”. Can’t blame them, such a drudgery that task is.

If you save your contacts on an online account, it’s easy to sync across devices, but beyond that, you have to figure out a way on your own to get these transfers done. And if you are switching platforms, like iOS to Android, the complications increase fourfold.

Although there are a number of ways to transfer data from the old phone to new, these aren’t straightforward for the average, non tech-savvy user. If you are looking for a one-click solution to transfer the data from an old phone to a new one, Mobile Swap, the simple software from the house of AllPepole, can help.

Mobile Swap can be downloaded for free from the AllPepole home page. The free trial version is good enough to transfer just 5 contacts from one device to another. After that, you’ll have to purchase the paid versions in the cost of $29.9/year or a lifetime price ($39.9) to acquire all the features of the software. The software can transfer data between Android, iOS, BlackBerry, and Symbian. Here’s a table depicting what you can transfer depending on the smartphone OS.

After you launch the software, you can either select a direct phone-to-phone transfer or use the backup that has been created using the official tools for each platform. After both phones are plugged in and you select direct transfer, the app will read the data on the old phone and give you the list of the data that’s compatible for the new phone.

Data transfer between Android devices was a breeze and you can literally clone your phone, but again messages can take a few hours. If you have previous backups from apps like iTunes, iCloud, or Samsung Kies, you can use those backup files to write your data to the new device.

The Mobile Swap will look for the default location when the backup files are saved by the official apps and load them directly. You just need to select the data you would like to restore and click Start Copy. A pretty neat feature if you don’t have the old phone handy. You can know More AllPepole product at APP Store:
