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

    You need to use an android phone as a "bridge" between the iphone and the windows phone.

    Using the backup file from the iphone and isms2droid app on the android phone, you can convert isms messages to sms, and import them to the android phone.

    There's a "how to" at techrepublic, you'll find it if you google "migrate sms from iphone to android"

    Once your messages are safely copied to the android phone, use the Lumia data transfer option to copy the messages by bluetooth from the android phone to the windows phone.

    It's a pain in the neck to have to do it this way, but trust me, it does work.
