    Hi all

    I need help/advice to transfer my text messages from my old htc wildfire to my new samsung galaxy II or to my pc. Ive saved my contacts to sim but cant see a tab to do this with texts.

    ive tried to log onto the android market but i get the following message "cant establish a reliable data connection to server" even when ive connected to WIFI at home.

    I really need to keep these messages so any help/advice is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    John

    No, but you just back up with any of the vast number of SMS backup apps, copy the backup, then restore it on the new phone. See post #2. There's nothing to it, and no need to pay money.

    Text messages are much more difficult than Contacts in regards of transfer. You can use Gmail or Google Drive to transfer the contacts between different phones, but can't do that for sms. For text messages transfer, you can check this sms transfer tutorial, which is demonstrated in a really simple way. A few mouse clicks will get the job done in a minute. Quite amazing!

    I use "Easy Backup & Restore" to backup messages. It can do much more, but some things require root (many don't). Just be sure to verify that every thing migrates prior to wiping your current device. Quite reliable in my experience, and it's free.

    I've read your post and think that it would be the best if you use some program to help you. Simply google some tools and transfer your SMS from the old HTC to PC via Wi-Fi or USB.
