    I should get delivery of my very first android phone (HTC Desire) tomorrow and i've been reading up on loads of things here, including on how to move my contacts from my Nokia N85 to my new desire.

    However i can't find anything on how to move txt messages, i've got quiet a few txt's on my nokia and i'd like to move to across to the Desire, if possible.

    I've backed everything from my N85 up onto the computer (and even managed to extract the txt's into single or 1 big .pdf file) but i can't find anything on how to get them across to the Desire.

    Is that possible at all, and if so, how please :)

    If you make a nokia pc suite backup.nbu, you can extract the SMS's but not sure if you will be able to get them on the desire.

    Search the whole of Android forums.

    When I made the switch I found a thread that gave instructions on how to do it. You need 2 or 3 apps, but can get all your SMS transferred. Never found a way to get the MMS over though.
