  1. Not correct.
    I purchased the Wondershare lifetime app after reading a line in their advertising that implied the existing data in the receiving phone would remain.
    After downloading the software, hooking up the phones, etc, the app said it was ready to restore the data.
    I cancelled immediately and then spent the next hour contacting Wondershare tech support.
    After an extended chat they said no, you cannot combine ois and android.
