But the reality is far from pleasant when you are trying to get the data (contacts, sms, music, photos...) in old HTC phone and put them into new iPhone. Because a large amount of the vital data are still stored in your old HTC handset, the traditional way of transferring the data from HTC to iPhone—dragging and dropping the data between folders using the computer as a bridge— is time consuming and inefficient.

The data migrating process may sound complicated and overwhelming but, actually, it is simpler than you might think.
