With the free trial version of this tool, you can export restricted songs, videos, contacts and photos. But, if you have to do more things than that, you'd better purchase MobileGo for iOS.
i have downloaded one and it keeps asking asking for activation code, though it is a trial version???
Thomas Jones
No, you should connect your iPhone with a computer via a USB cable. MobileGo for iOS doesn't support automatically sync contacts on your iPhone.
Is it wireless and does it automatically update a contact on all devices when info is changed on one device
Thomas Jones
It depends on you. You can either sync one contact or all contact from Outlook to iPhone.
What if you want to add just one contact from my Outlook to my iPhone?
It seems the only way to make this work is to pay for it first? the first thing I need to do is get my contacts loaded and I cannot seem to find a way to do it.
