    I was using Sony Ericsson k530i before. Now i switched to lumia 920. I have been able to transfer pictures and contacts with ease using the app "Transfer My Data". But the problem comes when i am trying to transfer text messages. Can anyone help me...?

    I don't believe this is possible when you switch from one OS to another.

    Android and Windows Phone have far different file structures and extensions, I just don't think its possible. Plus I don't believe Microsoft allows app developers access to the messaging app.

    I used the "Transfer my Data" App in my lumia 920 to transfer my contacts, text messages and photos. It only gave me the contacts to transfer but did not give the option to transfer/copy my text messages and photos.

    How can I transfer my messages and photos??? Please show me simply how to do this. It should be possible as both phones are the same OS of windows 8. So why doesn't it give the options to copy/transfer???

    Please let me know urgently. Thank you.

    If they both have Windows Phone 8, just sign into the new one with the same MS account and it should sync text messages. (At least I think it should, check out the messaging settings.)

    Also, I'd just plug in both phones into the same computer and copy over all the media directly, or plug just the new one in and copy what you want from OneDrive's camera roll (if you left the auto-upload enabled)
