    All,
    I stumbled across this website last night which claimed to have figured out a way to move/transfer MMS & SMS messages from your Android device to WP8.1. I had recently switched to WP from Android. One of the things I couldn't figure out how to do was transfer my MMS messages from my Android device to my WP. I searched just about every WP website I could find, but no one had figured this out... Until now.

    Finally I stumbled across this website:

    Resolved: How To Transfer SMS From Android to Windows Phone 8.1 - Tech Tutorials

    You'll need "Transfer My Data" installed on your WP8.1 Device and you'll need to install the Lenovo Backup and Restore v2.0.159.0605 apk on your Android device. The process extremely simply and worked perfectly on my Lumia 1520.3.

    I would assume the process works in reverse (i.e. you want to move your SMS/MMS messages to an Android phone), but I haven't tested that yet. Anyway, I wanted to share this with the community. I hope folks find it useful!

    Cheers,
    Justin

    Unfortunately only works for devices that have microSD slot, so no dice for 925/Icon/1020 owners :-(

    Hi Justin, this sounds just what I needed to transfer the SMS messages from her current Android to her new Lumia. Unfortunately when I followed the link to the site to download the file Lenovo Backup and Restore v2.0.159.0605 apk*it just gave me an error. Any idea where else I can find it? Thanks, Neil
