    I have a lot of old SMS messages on a few old SIM cards that I want to import to the One SV. If I do it from an old phone, Nokia N95 (after importing from the sim to the inbox on the nokia) using the transfer wizard, all the time and date info is missed and its imported with the time/date that it is transferred to the HTC. As opposed to the messages having their proper date/time info.

    If I put the old sim into the One SV the text messages show with the correct info, but they still show with the sim card symbol as being read off the sim.

    How do I import this from the sim to the phone with the correct info with the old sim card in the One SV. is there an import tool I have missed or an app?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Ok after searching again I just found it duh...
    For anyone else having this i found it within Messages:
    Select Menu->Settings->Text messages->Manage SIM card messages
    Then select Menu->Copy all to phone.

    All copied with correct date/time stamp.

    ;)
