    "Used it to copy my old iphone contacts to my iphone 5"

    October 10, 2012  |   By Mchippz

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 1.003

    Pros

    easy and inexpensive

    Cons

    notes backup not an option

    Summary

    I needed to copy my very extensive contact list on my old iphone which contains all my business and family contacts to my new iphone 5.

    I tried backing up my old iphone contacts via itunes but it just wasn't what I was looking for. I used this program to back up my contact list to my computer and then transfer it to my new iphone. I am now not worried that my contacts will be lost if something happens to my phone.

    "Easy-to-use, all-in-one iPhone contacts solution"

    June 27, 2012  |   By Glenror

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.904

    Pros

    Used this to clean up and organize my iPhone contact list and to back it up to my computer. Controls are simple and easy to use.

    Cons

    not sure yet. Don't think there are such

    Summary

    For a couple of years in college, I had accumulated dozens of contacts on my iPhone. Some of them were missing the complete names, other people had their cells changed and were not updated within my contact list. The copytrans Contacts helped me add the missing information quickly right from my PC. If I had to do it on the iPhone, it would have taken hours.

    Once I had my contact list organized, I backed up a safe copy to my PC using the same program.

    "We need more programs like this"

    June 1, 2012  |   By kiteboarderfan

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.089

    Pros

    worth using to put some order in one's contacts list

    Cons

    beta version - want the final already

    Summary

    I am not a messy person but my iphone contacts list was in such a chaos - I had synced contacts from elsewhere - my gmail account - my PC - etc and for years I had a number of duplicated contacts. this contacts tool was useful and helped me organize my iphone contacts into groups, delete all the duplicated data, and add updated information for some contacts. I then used the program to safely back up my organized contact list to my computer.

    "First-rate iPhone contact backup"

    May 9, 2012  |   By tedkr

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.086

    Pros

    easy on the tech-illiterate mind

    backs up iPhone contacts in no time

    Cons

    Wish I could save my iPhone notes in the same way

    Summary

    Was looking for a direct way to save my iPhone contacts on my PC. The program did just that - simply plugged in the phone with the USB and copytrans contacts did the rest.

    "As usual, good product...BUT"

    May 7, 2012  |   By hybucket1

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.086

    Pros

    It seems to have potential to be the usual fine CopyTrans product..but...

    Cons

    ...for some reason, this version (0.089) will only allow 20 contacts to be exported. The only way to get it to do more is to close it down, and re-open it, and then you get another 20. What's with that?

    Summary

    Obviously, a fluke. LEt's hope it gets fixed. I've emailed their support team, which is usually very good to reply.

    Updated on May 7, 2012

    That should have been version 0.086.

    "Helped me import my Windows contacts to my iPhone"

    April 27, 2012  |   By terorero

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.084

    Pros

    Quick and direct import via drag and drop - no iTunes or confusing online sync service was needed, just my PC and my iPhone.

    The program also identified my duplicate contacts on the spot and only transferred the needed entries to my iPhone.

    Cons

    I am so looking forward to the full version of this

    Summary

    I keep a backup of all my contacts on my Windows Address Book. The contacts are sourced from my two email accounts and my previous phones I have had. Many of these contacts are duplicated and I was not excited to import them to my new iPhone via an iTunes-sync as it would have copied all entries (including the duplicates) to my iPhone.


    I was delighted to use the quick drag/drip method this tool offered in order to transfer my Windows Address Book contacts to my iPhone. On top of it, it pointed out all the duplicate entries on the spot.

    "I finally managed to add contact groups to my iPhone"

    April 13, 2012  |   By utrenden

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.079

    Pros

    Easy to create contact groups directly within the iPhone Contacts application and easy to add contacts to groups.

    Cons

    Calendar support would be another nice feature.

    Summary

    For years now, I have been looking for a way to add and organize contact groups on my iPhone. The only way I could do that until now was through third-party apps. This however, did not add contact groups in my default Contacts app on the iPhone and I had to log in to the services I was using for grouping contacts - a bit of a messy story... Now copytrans contacts allowed me to create the groups directly within my iPhone Contacts application, I did not know this was possible at all!

    Nice job!

    "Quickly added pictures to my contacts; Easy as 1, 2, 3;"

    April 3, 2012  |   By samienunez1

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.077

    Pros

    Quickly accessed my iPhone contacts and applied a contact photo to my favorites

    Cons

    pictures can't be edited

    Summary

    I am computer illiterate. Most of my contacts on my iPhone are friends of mine of whom I have photos on my PC. Until now I did not know how to add these pics to my iPhone contact list. Copytrans Contacts allowed me to very easily add photos - just clicked on "Add photo" and selected one of my friend's photos.

    "The backup of choice if you need to upgrade your iOS"

    March 28, 2012  |   By hutchon_j

    Version: CopyTrans Contacts 0.074

    Pros

    This backed up each of my iPhone contacts to my PC and was able to restore them after I upgraded to iOS 5

    Cons

    not much to say here

    Summary

    I have been planning to upgrade my iPhone to iOS 5 for a long time now, but have always hesitated due to horror stories I heard of iTunes loosing backed up data and friends ending up with their iPhone contacts wiped away during the upgrade. I found this tool and safely backed up all of my 260 iPhone contacts to a folder on my PC.

    What's more is that after the upgrade the app restored my entire contacts list back to my iPhone in no time. Well done.
