How to Connect an iPhone to Multiple Computers

You often need to transfer data from your smart phone to multiple desktop or laptop computers and this might be a tricky job if you have an iPhone. Shifting data from an iPhone is often considered a confusing job, especially when you have different other computers to do so. Problems are often faced if you connect your iPhone to someone else’s computer, as this will erase out your previously stored data in phone memory. So is there any other way to connect your iPhone with multiple computers for sharing emails, contacts, calendar events, photos and files? Well, Apple’s IOS is the most stable and protected operating system and comes up to all your needs. A straight forward solution of this problem is to use ‘MobileMe’, an app built-in your iPhone.
