When you get a new phone, you have to face the thorny problem - how to transfer data from the old phone to the new one. If the two phones run the same OS, like Android, you can easily transfer data between two phones. However, things become much tougher when the two phones are from two different platforms, Android and iOS for example. There're some free solutions through the internet, however, they turns out to be very complex. To make the phone to phone data transfer, I would like to recommend a third party tool – the Wondershare MobileTrans.
