Well if you are an iPhone user and have just bought the latest Verizon iPhone then you must be curious to know that how you can transfer all your data including apps, contacts to the new phone.

Luckily, Apple has made this transfer of data thing pretty easy, all you have to do is follow few simple steps on iTunes and you will be over with it in a moment. This particular process that I am going to highlight will save all of your contacts, apps, photos camera roll and the device settings in a dedicated iTunes back-up.

Data-Transfer-AT&T-Verizon

Steps To Transfer Data from your AT&T iPhone to Verizon iPhone

So here is what you have to do:

  1. First of all you need to plug your iPhone into your Computer and open the iTunes
  2. The device will start syncing automatically, if it doesn’t then you can Click the Sync Button on the bottom right.Back-Up-iTunes-Option
  3. Moreover, you can Right Click on the Device name in Navigation bar of iTunes and select the Backup option.
  4. Once this syncing or backing-up is over then you need to Unplug your current iPhone and plug in your new Verizon iPhone
  5. As you will have plugged it for the first time so iTunes will prompt you to register the Phone, it will give you two options that is either setup your Verizon iPhone as a new phone or Choose to restore from an already backed up Profile.
  6. Now once the Restore process is over then your phone will automatically Reboot and iTunes will the iDevice detect again and will start the installation of apps and games.
  7. When iTunes will be done with its thing you will have your new Verizon phone having all the same data and settings as it was on your old phone.

So if you guys are switching over from AT&T to Verizon iPhone then do let us know in comments that how your transferring of data worked out to be.

Playing games on a console is better than playing games on your computer/laptop or your mobile device. Consoles are only for gaming and they have dedicated gaming modules and controls that make it easier to game. That’s not the case with a smartphone, they don’t come with dedicated gaming keys (excluding the Xperia Play) and thus aren’t really that much to play games on for a long interval of time. Well, smartphone gamers, your woes are over!!

iControlPad

iControlPad: WireLess Bluetooth Controller

iControlPad is a wireless Bluetooth controller that looks somewhat similar to the control pad of a Nintendo DS and functions as an alternative gaming pad for your phone. It connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone or even your PC and works like a charm. Although all smartphones aren’t supported and neither are all games for that matter. iPhone users need not worry, because it fits perfectly well on all the iPhones and utilizes the Bluetooth connection to show off it’s controller skills, but requires a jailbroken iPhone. Other compatible phones/devices are:

  • iPod touch
  • Motorola Backflip
  • LG Optimus S
  • Lg Ally
  • Blackberry Touch
  • Samsung Intercept
  • HTC Dream/ T-Mobile G1/ Era G1.

Also if your device has the same size as the holding brackets, then your lucky!! Here are some video demo of iControlpad:

The iControlPad is now available for order on it’s official website and will set you back by $63 with the extra attachments to hold the phones.

This week saw some massive things sprouting up from leading Smartphone manufacturers. Symbian and Palm, two of the most popular Operating Systems for Smartphones are nearing their end.

nokia-n8

HP announced their plans to kill off Palm Brand and flourish its new mobile operating system under the name ‘webOS’.

On the other hand, Nokia also made some similar announcements about limiting the use of their most popular Smartphone OS Symbian in upcoming Smartphones.

Nokia revealed that they would be slowly shifting from Symbian OS to Windows Phone 7 which seems to be a good idea since WP 7 is one of the most anticipated mobile operating system in 2011.

The life of two major mobile phone operating systems is close to end at the hand of android, iOS 4 and WP 7. RIP Palm and Symbian.

What do you think is Nokia’s decision to move on from Symbian justified? Why so?
