Dashwire Mobile 2.0 Goes Live

A few days ago I got an email from the people at Dashwire, they wanted to tell me all about the new version of their software that allows you to sync and backup your phone with your free web-based Dashwire account.

To be honest I’d never heard of Dashwire before and to begin with my reaction was ‘Not another Windows Mobile backup application!’. However, having had the chance to set up an account and install the application on my HTC Touch Diamond I can safely say this service is far from ordinary.

In a nutshell, once you have set up your free account online you’ll receive a text message with a link to download the application to your mobile device. Once installed the software searches through your phone and then backs up all of you contacts, photos, video, text messages, call history, ringtones, speed dials etc. etc. You’ll then have access to all of these settings from your web browser on your PC or Mac via a nicely laid out dashboard.

Dashwire wont backup your phone registry and doesn’t make a complete clone of your device settings. I does however allow you to sync your contacts etc. in such as way as to be non-device specific. This means that if you replace your HTC TyTN II with a new HTC Touch Diamond you’ll be able to sync the old device before and then the new device after the change over and the mojority of your key settings with you. I’ve already found this quite useful as I am constantly swapping handsets!

Dashwire is definitely well worth taking a look. It’s totally free to use to why not give it a try! Find out more or set up your account on the Dashwire website.

One word of warning though – syncing photos and video over your mobile network connection is likely to be VERY expensive, especially the first time you sync. It’s probably a good idea to sync over WiFi or an activesync connection!

What is Dashwire?

Dashwire automatically mirrors the content on your phone to the web, helping you access, manage, and share your mobile experiences

How does it work?

Once you sign-up for your FREE account, you’ll be prompted to install a small application on your phone that will keep your phone constantly connected and in-sync with your private, web-based Dashwire account.

What you do on the phone will instantly update on the web, what you do on the web will update your on phone.

No cables or effort required. Easy.

What does Dashwire bring to the web?

  • Contacts
  • Text Messages (SMS)
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Call logs
  • Voicemail
  • Phone settings – Ringtones, Web Bookmarks, Speed Dials
  • You control which items sync and when it happens. Dashwire connects across wireless data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB.
