    Hi All,

    Like every user probably did, I did a backup of my contacts and text messages before I updated to 2.1. I used the standard messaging app for this, thinking that I would be able to import them using the new messaging app.

    However in 2.1, the messaging app does not have the feature to import the texts. And know I don't have any idear on how to get my texts back.

    I already tried to install the original mmsg app from android 1.6, but that is a no go, as I expected.

    Does someone have a clue on how to recover this ?

    Else I have to revert back to 1.6, import and backup again using a different app and then update to 2.1 again. Losing all my setting for the second time.

    Bert

    If you have to go to the flash back to 1.6 then I would suggest an app called SMS Backup & Restore which I have found pretty good but haven't had to use it in relation to the update. What a pain in the rear tho. Let us know how you get on.

    when its been spoke about forget it - and if its that important, forward it on to another SIM

    A lot of people are having issues restoring the backup they made with the 1.6 app. It's a common issue.

    I actually DO save recipes as text messages sometimes, though ColorNote is probably better for such things.
