    Hi all,

    My decision to start migrating from WM to Android turned up to be be quite a headache. And here is one of the problems.

    For next year I intend to use Hero and HD2 at the same time and I will need to have them synchronized. Main issue is to have synced SMS - I have tried and looked for different options but ended up with nothing.

    Ways it could have been implemented:

    1. Desktop PC software that allows you to sync both Android and WM devices, including SMS.

    2. Something like Sprite Migrate, but software that works both ways.

    3. Something like My Phone service by MS but works on all platforms

    4. Software that will export txts in some common standard like xml. I tried to export with SMS Backup & Restore and to restore it to WM with Jeyo Mobile Companion but formats are different

    5. Others: backing up to SIM, trying to use backup created on Android with Sprite Backup on WM, forwarding sms via bluetooth, etc....

    So as you can see, I have tried many options but was was unsuccessful. Any other ideas how to transfer sms from WM to Android?

    One thing I can think of is to use Google Voice for SMS on both phones. I don't know if this would actually do what you want, but it might be worth looking at. You could also look at other third party SMS apps, if there are any that are available on both platforms.

    Thanks, Google Voice could be an interesting solution... Unfortunately though it works only in US and I live in UK.

    Didn't find any sms apps for both platforms either...:(
