SIMchronise launches PhoneBackup for the Irish market

SIMchronise, the mobile data synchronisation experts based in Dublin, Ireland, have just launched PhoneBackup for the Irish market. I just got a note in from CEO Philippe to let me know the details.

They’ve been doing some wicked work for a wide variety of companies since 2005 — their first public product is PhoneBackup, which, as you might imagine, does what-it-says-on-the-tin. Always a fan of things like that. PhoneBackup works with a wickedly large range of handsets — from LG to Motorola, Samsung, Siemens, Nokia… in fact here’s the full list:

PhoneBackup takes a regular backup of your handset’s phonebook and costs EUR 2.50/month paid by premium text message. Credit card, debit and paypal options are coming shortly.

Services such as PhoneBackup rank in my ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL list of services every mobile user should use. There is nothing worse than losing your contacts. I get emails regularly from readers telling me about their own personal screw-up. It’s a double-arse if you’ve had your phone stolen and not backed up your contacts. Take five minutes and get your contacts backed up. It’s worth it.

Now you can only use PhoneBackup if you’re based in Ireland at the moment — but the service is coming to the UK, Italy and Belgium shortly and will no doubt be on the radars of incumbents Mobyko and Zyb.

Every success to the SIMchronise team for the launch!
