hi, 

i would like to transfer texts from my old old very old android to my new S8.

i've managed to do it from my old iphone without the problem, but im stuck with the old android.

 

if i cant transfer, i would be happy to have them downloaded as text to my pc.

 

acording to google, it can be done, but i cant seem to get it working on my phone.

 

has anyone tried anyhing similar?

 

thank you, v.

Hi @VesnaKa,

 

The new S8 comes with a Smart Switch feature which you will be to use to transfer messages from old phone to new phone. Visit http://www.samsung.com/us/smart-switch/ for more information.

Use SMS Backup & Restore from the play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore

I've used it several times to transfer texts between devices and it worked flawlessly.

Since bothe devices run Android OS, you just need use an app to backup and restore your text messages. You can download the SMS backup restore app from google play or follow this way to backup and restore your SMS on Android.
