by purchasing the license it is possible to make the data transfer quiet by using multiple devices, that is, if I have 10 iOS smatrphons, can I use the same license with all 10?
Can it only be installed on a PC?

  • No, with the standard license you can transfer data between up to 5 different devices.
    There is the business version which has no transferable data limits but its license costs a lot more.

  • Once data is transferred from an iphone to a samsung, will the data be on both devices?

    • Si

    • but if I use the "trial" version does it work anyway or does it have limitations?

      • The trial version allows you to transfer only a few data .. it only serves to understand the compatibility of the devices and the operation of the software

  • it is necessary to purchase the program to perform the transfer

    • Si

  • Hi, But it works well with Asus Zenfone 3max zc520tl ?????
    He doesn't recognize it to me .........

    • Yes .. make sure that USB debugging is enabled on it and that when connected to the computer via USB it is detected correctly

  • Should the SIM be left in the iPhone during the transfer?

    • Yes .. but even without a sim, the transfer is successful (the data are all stored in the memory of the iphone)

  • if the iphone is broken and therefore does not turn on how can I do?

    • Unfortunately nothing can be done in this case (unless you have previously synced iPhone to computer via iTunes and then have a backup on computer).

  • can I also transfer the apps?

    • No, the apps are not copied

  • once the contacts have been transferred from iphone to galaxi do they still remain on the iphone?

    • yes, they also stay on iphone

  • Hello, and if when I get the galaxi s5 I have already sold iphone 5, can they be saved first on the pc and then put them later on the samsung?
