Today Best Buy Mobile announced a new internet-based service that will allow users of certain types of smartphones to sync and store user content on Best Buy's servers. The service, called mIQ, can sync content such as contacts, SMS messages, calendar, photos and videos, social networking data and provide general backups. mIQ offers users 1GB of storage for data and it is free to use. Best Buy says the service is compatible with BlackBerry, Windows Phone and Symbian S60 devices such as the BlackBerry 9700, Bold, and Tour; Nokia E71 and N97; HTC Pro 2; Samsung Omnia II; and the T-Mobile Dash 3G. mIQ will be available beginning October 12.

I was going to gripe about 1GB limit but then it said "free" so I was like ok 1GB will be fine for now plus I can always get a SDHC card/usb drive
Isn`t it mostly for txt msg`s & contacts. Those sorts of things shouldn`t take that much memory.

Just wait till Best Buy starts advertising to your contacts...

... via SMS, email & social networks.

Spying on your backed up data to "profile" you and your contacts to deliver specific advertising. Nothing is for free. Twisted Evil
