Migrating info to iPhone

Mobile device content management solution provider FutureDial on Monday announced that it has added the popular Apple iPhone to its portfolio of supported handsets for the company's software products used by carriers and wireless retailers worldwide. Stores, the company claims, can now transfer their customers' personal contacts, pictures, music, and video to the iPhone quickly and easily with a few clicks of the mouse. Supporting over 1,000 mobile phone models worldwide, FutureDial offers handset content transfer and management solutions that are centrally managed over a client-server architecture and operated from a PC interface.

According to the company, both wireless carriers and wireless retailers can use FutureDial's Retail Management Solution (RMS) at their Points-of-Sales, service centers and back offices to perform a service that transfers all of a customer's contacts and premium content (messages, ringtones, music, photos, and video) from an old phone to a new phone.

"As the iPhone becomes another hugely popular high-end handset, we wanted to make sure that our solution can help carriers and wireless retailers to accommodate the growing demand to easily transfer their customers' phonebook contacts and premium content when they purchase an iPhone," FutureDial's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Management Shu Gan said. "We are now pleased to announce the iPhone as an important addition to our supported handset list as the iPhone rapidly expands into the global marketplace."

In addition, FutureDial's RMS supports backup and restoration of personal data on handsets. The company claims that more than 70 million phones are lost, damaged or stolen in Western Europe and North America every year.
