Transferring SMS from BB to another phone

Hi I was hoping someone might be able to help me.

 

I would like to know if there is any software avaialble for backing up SMS messages from a BB device to an Andrioid or iPhone? I have seen serveral websties claiming the software works but I am not 100% sure if they are genuine.

 

Can anyone help?

Re: Transferring SMS from BB to another phone

You can back up your SMS message to your PC using your BlackBerry Desktop Software and use various PC softwares to extract the SMS database to an XLS file or ASCII text file.

 

However, not knowing in what manner you will import that database into an Android or iPhone, and you haven't mentioned what applications you've found that want to know "are genuine", it's sorta difficult to answer your question.

 

More information is needed from you.

Re: Transferring SMS from BB to another phone

I have backed up the blackberry and found some software called Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer, this seems to browse through and find SMS messages fine and also gives me the option to save them in various formats. What I need to do now is find out how to import them into the iPhone and Android.

Exactly...  another app for your PC is MagicBerry from Menastep which does the same thing.

Re: Transferring SMS from BB to another phone

You will need to backup with BB desktop software first.

Then import the backup file to other transfer software that capable to transfer SMS from BlackBerry to iPhone or Android.

I recommand you to use Phone Transfer, you can Google it to get one.

You can also read the guide here.
