http://blog.vufone.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/vufone.jpgIf there's one thing that MyPhone is likely to do, it's likely to shake up the activities and business models of third parties with competing services. These companies include Dashwire, Sprite Virtual Mobile and now vufone. Each of these companies have different pricing models - Dashwire is free, Sprite Virtual Mobile is subscriptino based and vufone is subscription based with 1 year of service free if you sign up by 1st March.

So what is vufone?

The vufone service offers:


Regular automated backup of your phone
No cables needed, over-the-air backup
Safe copy of your mobile information on a secure server
Contacts, messages, calendar, photos, videos or smartphone documents
Restore to any new phone brand or model

Get your Microsoft Outlook meetings or Google Calendar on your phone
Automatically synchronize Microsoft Outlook contacts or Gmail contacts to your phone
Synchronize your Microsoft Outlook tasks to your phone
Use your phone contacts in Microsoft Outlook or Gmail
Manage your phone contacts and calendar on the web

Upload your camera phone pictures and videos and view them online
Create online albums and show them to friends and family over the Web
Send your pictures and videos to friends phone
Upload your mobile photos and videos to your favorite social network
Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, YouTube
View your photos online in full quality

Upload songs to your phone over the web
MyPersona – make your picture appear on your friends phone when you call them
Turn any web picture into your phone’s wallpaper
Listen to your mobile music online
Send cheap text messages from the web

Sounds very much like Microsoft's new MyPhone with extra bits no? ;-)

In theory yes, in practice the product is more polished and more featured than the Microsoft offering (as well as supporting non Windows Mobile phones) and it's certainly worth signing up for a free 1 year subscription!

To get started, head on over to the vufone website before 1st March!

Might give this a try as its free. I liked dashwire but it slows down my device so much I only tend to use it if I am really desperate, and it doesn't store text messages which is a pain.

Hopefully this runs well and doesnt stop me using my device. Will be interesting to hear other comments.

Cheers

Phill

I setup an account and received message to download.

I have an O2 XDA Serra aka HTC Touch Pro, and although this is listed as supported, I am unable to use the service as when it attempts to download it tells me my device is not currently supported.

I've contacted support, and will update you all accordingly.

Anyone else had issues?

Whoops - missed it by a day!

Tried to sign up and got the 15 day trial instead.

Shame because I was trying to get rid of Dashwire and not really happy with MyPhone.

Ah well!

Spoke with the vufone team and apparently this is due to the huge variation of Window Mobile http headers.

The simplest way to override this problem is to download the phone backup and sync agent directly from their direct download page on their blog.

I ended up downloading from the direct download page you quoted above.

It's looking nice so far.

Nice touch:

If you logon online (on your PC/NB). Update a contact, and hit sync. It activates the app on your wm6 device, and sync's

Send me a PM with your phone number - I have friends there :( I will ask them to give you the 1 year free.
