    Is the a way to move my text messages from my Mot Droid to my INC.

    Can I copy them from one place and drop them into the INC?

    thanks

    Not quite sure what the best method is, but I used MyBackup Pro ($4.99) to transfer all of my contacts, apps, SMS & MMS, call log and some settings. I was able to transfer 90%+ from my Moto Droid to my Inc. . . . The most expensive app I've bought to date, but it now supports Sence, etc. and it was well worth the $5 vs. my time to manually transfer everything.

    You can do it with a Gmail sync or take them to a Verizon store they have a device they use to clone one phone to another regardless of brands or types.

    use bitpim(if your old phone is not a smart phone) to extract these messages from our old phone as a csv file, and use sms importer lite(free) to import them, works like a charm. Free versions limitaion is 100 smss, but if you have more just break up your csv in to several files.

    it really doesnt get easier then this :)

    I starting using Appbrain when I first got my Incredible... it is amazing.

    I use Handcent Text Messaging program, but pretty much all the text messaging programs you put on this phone all share the same texts and where they are centrally located.

    I would have to refresh my memory how I did, but its pretty self explanatory from what I remember. If I find instructions online I'll post up the link.
