Backup-Pal Transfers Cell Phone Address Book to New Cell Phone

Updated on November 15, 2010


A huge task can be handled by a small gadget no larger than the palm of your hand. The Backup-Pal is a universal cell phone backup device. It is simple to use – a single push of a button now can save you hours of time later. A single push of one button retrieves your cell phone data and a single push of a button restores your cell phone data.

Why Backup Your Cell Phone if there are other ways to Transfer Your Data?

How many times have you purchased a new cell phone and then wondered how to transfer your address book. Since that information is not readily available anywhere else you need a safe way to transfer it from your old cell phone to the new one. There are several options that can successfully make the transfer – however it would be best to be prepared before the need arises.

You can manually retype all of your contacts into the new cell phone. If you regularly sync your cell phone to your computer with software such as Active Sync then you can simply sync the new cell phone the same way. The Apple iPhone will sync with iTunes. Swapping the SIM card could save some of your data.

If you would rather avoid all of the hassle you can ask your salesperson at the cell phone store to do transfer for you. But sometimes things go wrong. A friend of mine left the task to the salesperson at her cell phone store. Unfortunately that person must have been distracted. Instead of moving the data – they deleted it.

Data on Damaged or Missing Cell Phones Cannot Be Transferred

If your cell phone is damaged or lost before you can make a backup copy then transferring your address book between cell phones is not an option. Even though we all know the need is there, most of us have no idea of how to backup a cell phone. That said, you would think there would be much more urgency than there is to find a way to backup a cell phone on a regular basis. The fact is that a very small percentage of cell phone users take steps to protect their data. You know that you would be devastated if you lost your data. Your social life as well as your business life could come to a virtual stop.

What makes the Backup-Pal Unique and how will it solve your Transfer Dilemma?

All address book data will be backed up both from the SIM card and from the Phone itself. The Backup-Pal is a universal device so there is no need to stay with any one carrier. The Backup-Pal is a battery powered standalone device so you do not need a computer to use it. Data is stored in memory so it is safe even if the battery is depleted.

There is no software to setup. The Backup-Pal is designed to use individual charging tips that charge most any cell phone. The Universal kit supplies 8 different cell phone charging tips but if your cell phone is not one of the support ones can purchase the required charging tip separately.
