"Absolutely terrible and Unintuitive"

March 09, 2013  |  By esquiremodeski

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

After 15 attempts if finally recognized my phone.

Cons

Right off the bat, couldn't register my product. Had to do searches to download a fix. It took me lots of attempts to have phone recognized by software. After phone recognized, it took more trial and error to have it find my contacts. Now that I have my contacts, there are no instruction of how to transfer them to the new phone.

Summary

Software is a waste of money, poorly designed, and am surprised that it actually worked for anyone.

"Burn your money, at least you'll get warm."

January 22, 2013  |  By gpfan1

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

There are no positives to this software.

Cons

Would not import recurring Outlook appointments. Hangs when attempting to read computer file from Outlook. Updates only made the problem worse.

Summary

I had Data Pilot on my old XP computer and it worked well. This new version 7.12 would only import last years calendar with no recurring appointments. When I got the latest updates, it would hang when attempting to read any Outlook files. Now it doesn't work at all. I emailed Data Pilot's tech support via their tech support section and never received any responses.

"Absolute joke"

May 22, 2012  |  By MMKILIAN

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

ABSOLUTELY NONE

Cons

Well, it doesn't work. And you have to pay extra for tech support...ya, seriously. "Have your credit card ready" if you call tech support.

Summary

Worst software I have EVER purchased.

"Would like to use my new software before I retire!"

July 28, 2011  |  By Volvo850GLT97

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

Nice looking CD. Heard great things about the software online by others.

Cons

Still waiting for the serial number!!! I ordered this CD sometime in August 2010 after I gave up my Nextel I880 for a Sprint family plan with Samsung Exclaims.

Summary

As of this writing after getting hold of their phone support inquiring about the whereabouts of my CD, I finally recieved the CD last week. Got excited went ahead to install on computer and it asks for a serial number. The serial number on my email comes up as invalid. And they didn't send me a serial number with the CD. So just got done submitting a ticket for the serial number. Hoping one day....before I grow old and die I get to try it out for myself.

Updated on Jul 28, 2011

If I don't recieve the serial number in the next 3 months does anyone want this CD? I'll give it to you for free! You pay the shipping charges.

"Mediocre product & funky support. Mis-hit functionality"

May 31, 2011  |  By Omphalopsikite

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

The cables work, and the Bluetooth interface is adequate.

Cons

CD doesn't do much, two of my phones couldn't be found by the software, and the one that was had to restart several times during data transfer. (New laptop with Win 7.0 64 bit)

Summary

For example, Samsung Ace appears to be mis-listed as SCH-i325; it is actually an SPH-i325 and DataPilot can't find it, even if Bluetooth discovers it correctly. The CD is just a way to get to a website, which is probably because there are thousands of phones, but the label makes you think it is specific to Samsung, like the cables. No phone support, and no acknowledgement or reply to e-mail. The Skype contact gimmick is sort of cute but just wasted time. If you can test it with the free trial version, maybe OK, but don't walk out of a store thinking you will go home and start backing up your phone. I finally just key-pounded the contacts into a spreadsheet by hand. It might be quicker and cheaper than fighting with this software.

"Simple and Easy to use"

April 28, 2011  |  By dhwinther

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

Allowed me to access some pics on a phone without having a flash card to read.

Cons

Took a little while to figure it out; not for the computer illiterate.

Summary

For price I'd recommend purchase if you need to move pics to your PC.and not break the bank.

"Great value for money"

March 28, 2011  |  By George Wise

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

works with most phones
excellent price for what you get
easy phone detect

Cons

None really.

Summary

I have always had troubles with getting the phones work with computer. This software picks up the drivers without the need to install driver every time you plug in the phones. Great solution to backup pictures and contacts easily.

"Worked great for downloading data from old phones"

January 13, 2011  |  By moctarts

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

Needed to download photos from some old, out of service cell phones. This worked perfectly.

Cons

Trial version puts watermarks on the pictures, but at least you can tell if the software will work for you.

Summary

Worth the $19.95 price, but look for coupon codes on the Web.

"Datapilot bad product"

December 26, 2010  |  By lucky76

 |  Version: DataPilot 7.01

Pros

Comes with a cable that actually works.

Cons

Ringtone composer doesn't work with any imports on my computer.
Product support doesn't exists.
Upgrade only wants to sell me a new product.

Summary

I feel like I wasted my money on this product. It's came out of the box as an old version 6.1.0. I see this revies on cnet says 7.01. I can't find a way to upgrade. It only cost me $19.99 and I can edit my phone book using it so maybe 1 star is enough.
