    Hi guys,
    A friend had a horrible samsung tocco lite and she has been given a Galaxy S2 but wants to keep her sms messages, I have used the samsung software that came with the tocco lite to export the messages to the pc but it creates a .NEF file can i use anything to import this file onto the S2?

    Ive looked on google for a while but not found anything that works.

    thanks

    You can use VeryAndroid SMS Backup to import a .vcf file to the handset. However converting the Samsung .nef file doesn't look easy. Is there an option in the Tocco's software to use another file format?

    Nikon's RAW digital image files use the NEF extension too, unfortunately.

    However I misread the description of VeryAndroid.... it uses *.CSV files, not *.VCF. :eek:

    I've also found one or two posts suggesting that the Samsung file can be opened with MS Access as it's a compatible database format. If that's the case then Access should be able to then re-save it as a *.CSV, ready for use with VeryAndroid.

    yep access opens the file, for some reason the phone has exported the sms messages but not the ems ones but thats not a problem.
    Thanks again
