Tips to Transfer Files Between LG Devices and Computer/Mac
Q: My mother mistakenly restored the factory settings on her LG Optimus cell phone yesterday and all the data were gone. That was terrible and she was totally at a loss because she just bought the LG cell phone a couple of days ago. Everything happened just so suddenly. Thus I want to back up my files from my LG cell phone to computer before I make the same mistake someday. Is there some software that can help me do that? Thank you very much.
I believe many of you have restored the factory settings by accident and all Data or files on the LG smart phones were gone by then. So in order to prevent this thing from happening, you will need to back them up on your computer first. And we know that a free LG managing software named LG PC Suite has been released by LG Mobile Corporation to help their users organize the data. However, according to users' feedbacks on the Internet, it runs too slowly on the desktop computer from time to time. What's more, it does not allow you to edit some files like contacts or messages on computer. Therefore, LG users are eager to find better software to transfer files between LG and computer more effectively and quickly. So I highly recommend the transfer manager software to all the LG users: MobiKin LG Desktop Manager & MobiKin LG Desktop Manager for Mac.
Here, I will give a brief introduction of the functions of the software for your reference:

- Add, delete or edit LG data on computer;
- Send messages to anyone you like or do mass texting directly;
