    Hello - I just got a new Samsung Galaxy S and am trying to transfer SMS messages from my old iPhone. I'm at the point where I need to transfer the xml file onto the Galaxy, but when I mount via USB all I see is the following folders:
    Android
    DCIM
    external_sd

    I just went though the same process with my new Inspire. I believe you have to have the phone disconnected from the computer when you preform the restore or the backup.

    Try creating a backup on your phone while it's unplugged from your computer, then plug it in and you should see a folder that it created called SMSBackupRestore. Drop your .xml file in there. Unplug it from your computer, then try the restore and see if that works!
