    from what I can gather you can not do this. Immessage you can't as those are an apple service.

    You can't even do it from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8.

    Ask your provider, some have databases. Here in Switzerland Orange has a service where you can get all your received SMS msg send again to your phone. Ask, it does exist.

    I'm not sure how to get them onto the Windows Phone 8, however, there are many programs that will allow you to get the data off your iPhone... Here are 2 (I use iExplorer):

    iExplorer: iExplorer - iPhone, iPad Music & File Transfer App - Mac & PC
    TouchCopy: How to transfer music from iPod to iTunes, Transfer Music from iPhone to iTunes with TouchCopy 12

    Both have PC & OSX versions with free trials.

    Hope that helps!

    I know this is an old thread but there is a very simple answer to this that im surprised no one else listed.. GO TO YOUR PROVIDER :) , they have software that can transfer everything from your old phone to your new, including SMS & MMS. IF you do not want to go to a corporate store, such as ATT or Verizon, Best Buy also provides this service free of charge if you buy the phone from them (I used to work there).

    So this answer is for all those future folks that want to move over from Apple oLdphone to WP :D

    You can always forward them to another number and put that number in your Lumia 920. Once you turn on the Lumia 920 with the new sim and number, the SMS's will arrive on your Lumia 920. You can then put in your old sim and still have the SMS's.
    Moreover, you can also use some transfer software to transfer SMS from iPhone 4s to Lumia 920 with the help of some phone transfer software, here I recommend you the iPhone SMS to Nokia Transfer.

    You cannot transfer SMS from android or iphone via that app, because sms transfer is supported only for several devices on s40 and s60
