1. A method for automatic peer to peer data replication between mobile devices comprising:

  • detecting a trigger by a source mobile device;

    responsive to detecting the trigger, generating a data replication request at the source mobile device;

    inserting a first Internet Protocol (IP) address of the source mobile device into the data replication request;

    thereafter sending the data replication request having the first IP address of the source mobile device to a target mobile device;

    thereafter receiving from the target mobile device a response, wherein the response includes a second IP address of the target mobile device, and wherein the first and second IP addresses are different;

    opening a direct communication channel between the source mobile device and the target mobile device using the target and source IP address;

    replicating a data store from the source mobile device to the target mobile device using the direct communication channel, wherein an existing data store on the target mobile device is replicated to create an identical data store on the source mobile device.
