"Latest will not install."

February 21, 2014  |  By DiEx80

 |  Version: BitPim 1.0.7

Pros

I have not had any problems with this program before.

Cons

- Won't install as it says MSVCP71.dll is missing.
- There is not a help support for this program. If there is, you have to subscribe to their mailing list. Although that is partially because this is a Open Source program.

Summary

It really isn't a bad program and had no troubles with it before. that is until I upgraded this computer to Windows 7. I would give this a full 5 but since I cannot find help for why it says it is missing this MSVCP71.dll, I have to ding it a bit.

"This program wiped all picture and videos off my phone!"

May 01, 2013  |  By starcap_68

 |  Version: BitPim 1.0.7

Pros

None I can see

Cons

It wiped pic and video files from my phone.
Didn't detect phone.

Summary

It told me it could not detect my phone or port in use so I thought I'd wasted my time downloading it . I have an LG900G prepaid phone through NET10. Since it didn't detect the phone, I didn't think it did anything nor did I check the phone. Today I went to look at a pic on my phone and found the file was empty. Went to the video file and found the same thing, an empty file. I had originally downloaded this to try to transfer a video from my phone that I couldn't do through SD card as the slot had been damaged by my dog.

"Be Afraid. BitPim Wiped my Sprint Samsung phone memory."

May 09, 2011  |  By scottjohnson63

 |  Version: BitPim 1.0.7

Pros

Free? Nothing good to say.

Cons

The first time I plugged in the phone it asked me to download my ringtones. I thought, no big deal. It wiped my phone address book clean. Where is it?
There is no customer support.

Summary

Back up online with Sprint for $ 2 instead of doing this Free Software. BitPim says right on their web page not ask them any questions as they do nit provide support. My bad for not checking first.

"easy to download & install it did NOT do anything else"

February 20, 2011  |  By mishpaka

 |  Version: BitPim 1.0.7

Pros

easy to download and install itself.

Cons

did NOT recognize either of my cell phones, did NOT allow me to transfer ANY info from them to my computer to put into my newer phone, offered NO assistance as to HOW to accomplish these things. at this point, I wasted $$ on the USB connection wires.

Summary

waste of time and $. the only way I can move pictures, sounds, ringtones from my Sprint ( not smart phone ) which I've had for about 2 years, to my newer Spring phone, is to go to a Sprint service store, pay someone more $$ to try to attempt the same thing with their equipment.... meanwhile I'm still stuck with this newer phone *somewhat unhappily* under contract, for TWO MORE YEARS !!!

"BitPim keeps getting better"

January 31, 2011  |  By autowood

 |  Version: BitPim 1.0.7

Pros

Auto detects phone. Able to extract contacts, edit(add remove contacts) using keyboard instead of keypad and replace of move to a new phone.

Cons

Did not talk directly to Droid. Had to email contacts via Gmail to Droid, then able to install. Obscure method but it did work.

Summary

I started using this program years ago when I got a new phone that didn't have the ability to exchange contacts with Outlook. I was able to store, edit and transfer my contacts with my computer from the old phone to the new phone. The original version of BitPim required looking up model number of the phone. That process has been automated. I haven't tried the new BitPim, but I used to have my own ringtones made from mp3 clips from the first version I used. I'm certain the new one must have that feature and if it does, I'm sure it works just fine. I gave it 4 instead of five stars because I want the makers of BitPim to give up and keep on making this handy program better.

couple of typos but it gets the point across. Like to be able to edit this review. I do not want the makers of BitPim to give up, I want them NOT to give up.
