Connecting Windows phone

Whats is supported

Windows Phone is a very closed OS, which gives it better security and stability, but there is no tool available to fully manage the phone content. You can manage files using a few tools but you can not manage your contacts, messages, and others.

We worked hard to offer the maximum possible. Our software can read contacts from this phone using Bluetooth. MOBILedit can also write contacts into this phone. It is impossible to manage contacts online, but you can write contacts using Phone Copier Express or Data Transfer plugin in MOBILedit.

So you are able to:

  • Read contacts using Bluetooth

  • Write contacts using cable connection and our driver (not available for Forensic products)

  • Manage your media files 

How to connect Windows Phone

What you need is a device driver for Windows and your specific phone, you can download it from the manufacturer's website or here.

It is not recommended to have Zune software installed. This software will block your connection with our software. If you have installed Zune by accident and want to work with our software, please uninstall your Zune software. During the driver installation, you will be prompted by your operating system to confirm the acceptance of our driver.

Windows CE Phone connection

Download the phone driver here. If you are using the computer with the version of the Windows 10 1703 and above it is necessary to do the settings change.

After the driver installs, it is necessary to right-click on Start, and then click on Computer Management /Services & Applications /Services.

Scroll down to right-click on "Windows Mobile-2003-based device connectivity" to select Properties / Log On.
