Hi,

I have a old samsung vibrant smartphone running android 2.2 (Froyo) from which I want to move messages into my brand new iphone 6s. Apple discussion forum says, there is no way to do this and recommends archiving text messages from android to view later using a pdf reader in iphone.

 

I am wondering if there is a reliable way to move my text messages from android 2.2 to ios 9 in iphone 6s? Any help is much appreciated

 

 

Thanks

Hi rajagopal,

 

Apple's recently released Move to IOS Android app is meant to do that easily, but I doubt it'll work on such an old version of Android (Official requirements is Android

4.0 and up.)
 
From the Play Store you certainly won't be able to download it, but you could try installing the APK file on your Android, which you could get from here.

You can search many useful tools on Google Chrome or Google Play store which can help you transfer data between Android and iPhone, such as Apowersoft Phone Manager, AirMore and so on.

The Move to iOS has an over rating of 2.2, which is kind of surprise. I have tried to migrate my Samsung galaxy s5 to my new iphone 6s over ten times. Each time, the program stops working on the Samsung and it crashes. I believe it is at 44 or 45% each time. I am so frustrated right now, especially since it takes about 30 minutes for each try! GRRRRR! I had to turn around another solution on this and finally found out a great one by following this tutorial( transfer from android to iPhone), which works fine on both sides, it well worths the money and save me  a lot of time setting the new phone.

If you want to transfer the messages from your android phone to your iPhone then in that case, it is possible with the help of Android Data Transfer. This application software would help you to transfer the massage from your android phone to iPhone or other phone or PC easily. For more details visit:

I think you can use a  data transfer tool,

 

which can be helpful, the data between different operation systems can not be transfered directly and easily.

 

Hope this phone transfer tool can help you.

transfer sms from android to iphone.

"Move to iOS" is free and convenient tool to move data from Android to iPhone, when we need switch to a new device. There are many manufacturer tools or third party phone transfer software can help.

For contacts, Google synchronisation,the same with itunes or outlook synchronisation . For text messages, you can download sms backup and restore apps or directly try some transfer programs.

In my opinion ,to transfer messages to iPhone ,you need use a android data transfer tools to complete this task ,you'd better go to the offical website to install , to prevent these data from being lost , and connect  your  android and iPhone to the computer once the installation is overed , you can easy enter the phone by using this tools,it can get you a preview , you can choose SMS you want to transfer and start to transfer , when you has transfered SMS successfully , you will can find this tool can not only empower your to transfer mesasges , but also the other phone data are supported ,

Such as transfer contacts to iPhone /computer in a mory easy way ,

No one really can. (see the spammers/product_promoters that this thread has drawn?...It makes it even more suspicious.)

 

That's why I have advised using the official Move to IOS Android app, which is from Apple themselves and is obviously safe.
