Wondershare MobileTrans can transfer contacts, call logs, media files, and more across mobile operating systems, as well as back up your smartphone data to your computer, should you ever need to restore. It’s accessible, functional, and supports all major mobile operating systems except (unfortunately) Windows Mobile.
Works with Android, iOS, and Symbian: Wondershare MobileTrans covers data transfers between the two most popular mobile operating systems and, surprisingly, brings older Symbian handsets into the equation as well.
Complete data transfers: We were not limited to just contact and SMS transfers between different operating systems, but also successfully moved everything but call logs and apps from an old Nokia 5800 (Symbian) to a Sony Tipo (Android). This app can be a lifesaver for those clinging to old Nokia handsets.
Exhaustive backups: In 20 minutes we backed up to our PC virtually all data from an Android 4.3 smartphone, including 130 apps, 80 photos, five long HD videos, more than 2,000 contacts, and about 500 call logs.
Windows Mobile not supported: The Windows Mobile OS commands only a single-digit percentage of users worldwide, but it is popular in countries like Italy and the UK. It would be a good idea for the developers to integrate Windows Mobile in future versions and thus extend support to practically every smartphone available.
When it comes to smartphone data transfers and backups, Wondershare MobileTrans does wonderfully on all fronts with its super explanatory interface, making it worth every cent of its $19.95 price. It is ideal if you still have a Symbian handset and want to move to a more modern OS, if you want to switch between iOS and Android or vice versa, or if you just want to keep your precious mobile data safe on your computer. However, if you use Windows Mobile, you’re out of luck.
Editors’ note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Mobile Trans 5.0.0.
