Phone users are strongly suggested or required to transfer important files like contacts, text messages, photos, videos, audio files and more from their mobile phones to computer since they may encounter such kinds of situations as below (here we set TCL Alcatel as an example):
Situation 1: It is essential to take precautions to backup crucial data in your mobile phone to computer, in case these files might be lost from your phone due to various reasons, such as accidental deletion, device damaged, system corruption, or just get your phone lost or stolen.
Situation 2: The memory space of your mobile phone is becoming insufficient because you just saved and captured a large amount of files in it, especially large movies, countless photos and thousands of text messages. You need to delete some of them from your phone in order to get more other data. Therefore, you need to transfer them to your computer before you delete them.
Situation 3: You just switch from TCL Alcatel to a new mobile phone, such as Samsung, HTC or iPhone. There are lots of important files saved on your old TCL Alcatel that you want to continually used on your new phone. How to achieve that? Transferring them to your computer and then sync them to your new phone is an ideal way.
