How to Transfer SMS from Android Phone to iPhone

While there’s no direct method to hack your way into the iPhone file system to import SMSes from your Android phone, softwares do allow you to do that. For those of you who want to transfer their SMSes from Android phones to the iPhone, there’s “Backuptrans Android SMS to iPhone Transfer” which helps you do just that.

Transferring music or contact data is usually easy. You have plenty of options including iTunes, Outlook and even other third-party services. In fact, if you’ve got an Apple account, you even have iCloud which can be used to transfer contacts and photos easily.

But when it comes to SMSes, things get a little more than tricky. You have to rely on exporting the files from Android, converting them to “.db” and then importing them into the iPhone.

It’s relatively easy to access Android’s file-system but you hit a brick wall when you come to the iPhone. You’ll need iFile or something of that sort to access the file system. Even then, how do you change the SMS exports to be readable by the iPhone?

That’s where Backuptrans helped us.

Here’s how to use Backuptrans to transfer SMSes from your Android smartphone to iPhone.
