How to Transfer Old Text Messages from Symbian to Android

Restoring the contacts in your phone book or contact list is now easy through Google sync ans SIM memory. SMS restoring is an issue I went through recently with my old Nokia 5800Xpress Music when moving to Android.

Text messages on Symbian to XML file format.

  • Sync the phone with Ovi and completely exit.
  • Run the application after closing Ovi Suite, wait till it detects your SMS backup. Select Datastore1 in Ovi store & All Phones in Phone IMEI.

You will get an XML file.

Restoring XML file.

  • Download and install SMS Backup & Restore application on your phone from Android Market
  • Copy the .xml file on your android device, in sdcardSMSBackupRestore Folder
  • Run the SMS Backup & Restore application on your Android device and restore all text messages.
