    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.

    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!
