Taking the plunge from iPhone to Android

    I love android and I despise the iPhone. Running Android on my iPhone has only made it worse. I'm getting my new android phone tomorrow.

    What I want to know is this - is it possible to export the SMS database from the iPhone and use it with Android? It is only a database so it should be possible to copy the files into the android SMS database?

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    I never had an ihone and I know how locked their is, I came to android from winmo and blackberry. My best guess for transferring all your texts would be to find a backup app that is available for both OS's or maybe sms app, either of which would have to store your data online because iphones can't use SD cards. Upload the data on your iphone then try to retrieve it on your new phone, although I doubt apple would allow anything like this. By the way if you are buying an android tomorrow, why wouldn't just check out the EVO on Friday.

    Thanks for the reply.
    My iPhone is jailbroken so I have access to the SMS database.

    And I'm in Australia so the HTC Evo isn't an option >.<

    If you are in Australia, I will assume you are with Telstra. I hope you are getting the Desire. :D

    Nah I'm getting the X10 Xperia :(
    I'm with Optus because I prefer quantity over quality. I can't afford the Telstra plans for what I use.
    And I'm too cheap to import the Desire in from UK so X10 it is :(
