    Very simple question really that does seem to have been addressed with success anywhere else.

    I have several text message threads that I would like to transfer to my tower.

    I am open to any suggestions

    Download and use the "Contacts+message backup" app. It exports all of your text messages to a text file. Then you can transfer that file and restore it on another phone. You can also open the text file to pull stuff out, but it isn't nicely formatted.

    Hi Mike
    Thanks for that.
    I now have a problem which how ever I try I can't seem to get rid of.

    On the "Downloads and installs" page on my Lumia 920 phone I have the following information;
    Queue (2)
    Starting download
    contacts + message backup
    Starting download

    Check for updates

    Above you have everything as seen on the screen with the exception of >>>> and <<<< and ==== they are just used to segregate the various items.

    On doing a bit of research Microsoft are saying "Gadgets have been discontinued" please see below

    windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/gadgets ---------- This is not a live link till I have 10 posts

    This is stuck in a continual loop, "starting download" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . just will not progress further than "starting download"

    So I can only think the phone is trying to download something that is not there ! ! !
