Have a look at this page. It tells you how to backup your SMS messages using Kies. This allows you to load your messages on to a new phone.

An extract:

Step 3: Click on the Back up/Restore tab. Here you will see a list items that you can backup from your Samsung mobile device.

Step 4: To backup SMS from your Samsung mobile device, click on the checkbox beside Message and click on Backup.

Step 5: Wait until Kies finishes backup Samsung text messages. You can find the backup location at the bottom of the screen.

Step 6: Click on Ok. That's all you have to do to take backup of your SMS from Samsung mobile device.
