Bring your messages from Symbian and BlackBerry over to Windows Mobile

home-splashThis tip is for all the readers that are thinking about switching to Windows Mobile but don’t want to leave their information behind, such as this WMPoweruser reader below:

Hi All,
I want to switch from Nokia 5800 running S60 5th edition to HTC HD2. The only thing stopping me is how to transfer messages from S60 to WM.

Is there a way to do so?

The easy solution is a service called mIQ that replaced Dashwire, but it does the same thing and all for free. This site does it in a 4 step process that is about as painful as pinching your self. 

Step 1: Never lose your must-have information again! With mIQ, your contacts, text messages, calendar events, call log, photos, videos, and voicemail messages automatically upload – as they happen – and are safely backed-up on your private web account. After all, when’s the last time you’ve been prepared to drop your phone in a swimming pool?

Step 2: Whether you’re at work in front of your computer, in an airport after your phone battery has just died, or traveling in a country with no service – your content is just a web browser click away. mIQ’s desktop-like web experience allows you to send and receive text messages, manage your contacts, schedule new calendar events, view and edit your photos and videos, listen to your voicemail, track your phone usage, configure your phone settings, and do all sorts of other things – from anywhere, without ever having to even pick up your phone! A big screen and a computer keyboard can be very nice.

Step 3: You just captured a completely ridiculous photo. How would you go about texting it to your closest friends, e-mailing it to your parents, uploading it to all of the social sites you use, and updating your status so that people could hear about what happened? mIQ automatically uploads your photos, videos, and status updates to the web, making it easy for you to share with the people you care about and the social sites you use to stay connected with them.

Step 4: Changing phones doesn’t have to be such a headache. Losing your phone doesn’t have to be a catastrophe. Simply add mIQ to your new phone and watch as your contacts, calendar, and web favorites automatically appear.
