    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.

    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?

    Not that i can see no

    Any converters i can find are to do with image files

    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
