MyPhoneExplorer is a freeware phone management software, useful for those who need to explore their phones. It works with Sony® Ericsson® and Android™ mobile phones (running Android™ 1.6 or higher).
This application can connect to mobile devices using a USB cable, Wi-Fi, infrared or Bluetooth (pairing also possible) connections. As soon as a connection is available, you can perform all kind of actions (listed at features section below) related to backup, Explorer, and personal information manager. It works with almost all Microsoft® Windows® versions in both ways: portable or installer. Linux users can run this software using the Wine emulator (tested with Ubuntu Linux version 12.10).

- the only limitation applies to low-cost phones which do not have a PC-interface and the old Symbian® based (examples: W950i, W960i, G700, G900, P1i, M600i) that require the PC-Suite to be installed first and limits the connection with MyPhoneExplorer app through the USB-Cable (no other connection available).
Important:Great news! Starting with 4 March 2015, MyPhoneExplorer is no longer using bundles - it is 100% clean. If you like this program, I encourage you to make a small donation to the author (check the "Donate" link from the bottom of this page).
If you have a mobile phone running Android™ (version 1.6 or higher), you will like MyPhoneExplorer as it acts as a man-in-the-middle, setting up an interface between your phone and computer. According to feedback received from users, large vendors failed to provide a similar product, so it was rated numerous times as among the few and probably the best phone management software.
I regularly checked for other free alternatives such as Vysor,
AirDroid or Wondershare MobileGo (last two recently flagged as being UNSAFE) but couldn't find a better option than MyPhoneExplorer. As proof, it was and still is the only software listed on FossHub Mobile category.
Install the app, connect your mobile phone and perform different actions:
- send SMS messages faster from its interface using your computer keyboard (useful if you need to type many of them to friends, family, clients or colleagues, especially during Christmas or New Year's Eve),
- manage and edit appointments, notes or alarms, move data from your SD Card to your PC (photos), backup your phone data and so on.
As a short conclusion, the main advantages are ease of use (user-friendly interface), speed and backup (transfer data from phone to PC) and a clean and safe app to use, after all, you don't want some nasty adware to copy your contacts or any other sensitive data from your smartphone.
