Hello, I've recently switched from an android phone running ICS to the lumia 810 running 8. I was given the opportunity to get the Lumia 810 almost new for $60. Considering I've been wanting to ditch android for a while, this was too good of an opportunity to pass up.

I've been able to link the new wp8 to my google account, so I got all the contacts. What I haven't figured out is how to transfer my old text messages over.

I did a search and people seem to be saying it was impossible. These posts were made months ago, so I am wondering if it is still true that I can't transfer my text messages over to my new windows 8 phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys.

Thank you for your answer.

This app works for contacts, but when I try to do sms the app keeps failing.

Is there a way I can transfer the sms messages by saving it to an sdcard and transferring it over to the windows phone?

Good news for you. Nokia's Transfer my Data app now supports text message transfer from both iOS and Android. Click the app link above to get the updated version.

Did you do any setting on your android phone before you tried the transfer app ?

I recently bought the Nokia Lumia 1520 and when i try the transfer app on the Lumia it is able to copy my contacts properly but while searching for text message it causes the bluetooth share service to crash on the android. i am not sure as to what is happenning

mazendaher,
that works only for Nokia Symbian. If you see the title, we are talking about Nokia Lumia Windows phones.
