Thomas Jones
Hi, MobileTrans supports iOS 5 and later. Please upgrade the iOS of your iPhone and try it again.
I am also trying to transfer contacts from Iphone 3GS to Samsung Note N7000. Iphone has 4.1 OS. Debugging stops at 99% on sveral computers ?
Thomas Jones
Sorry for that. Try connecting your devices for a few times, then you may succeed.
My Nexus 4 Fails to Connect after 99% Complete. I have tried to install the software on a different computer and I get the same results. At first, nothing would show up at all until I turned on USB debugging on the developer setting. But I'm still stuck at "Fails to Connect". I have also tried to use the latest Android SDK drivers. Still no luck.
