I want to transfer all SMSes from my old phone Nokia 6300 to Philips W626. I have tried several tools but all of them failed. Does anybody know tested way to do it?

An accepted solution is described with the question How to move contacts and other data from Symbian to Android? -- which might be of special interest to you, as it covers the transfer of other data as well. The SMS Migrator tool described there does, according to its description...

4 steps to migrate / import / transfer / move SMS from Iphone, Window Mobile, Symbian (Nokia), BlackBerry, Sony Errison, Samsung, Siemens, and so on to your Android.

A step-by-step guide can be found on the product's website.

  • Probably SMS Migrator will do the job. But it is not free and according to reviews it failed for some people. I don't want to pay for something that will probably fail.

  • I understand. As that tool either requires you to first export SMS on your own, you might want to take a look at Migrating SMSes from Windows Mobile to Android phone -- not the tool itself, but the procedure might help. If you can figure out the XML format used, and convert your exported SMS into it, you will be fine.

Finally I was able to import SMSes using SMS Importer Lite. This post was very helpful to make it work. It was required to configure SMS Importer this way:

  • Source type: Custom

in Advanced preferences:

  • Seperator: ,
  • Sender position: 3
  • Date position: 6
  • Body position: 8

Otherwise it always failed with "unexpected error" message.
