Re: How to transfer my old Sms to my new blackberry

First, from Nokia, find out how you can save or backup or transfer those SMS messages to a database.

 

Once you have that answer from Nokia, please post back here.

Re: How to transfer my old Sms to my new blackberry

You have them "on your PC" in what format?

 

What is the file type?

 

A database is a collection of data, on a consumer PC, often in xls, asc, csv or dbf formats.

Re: How to transfer my old Sms to my new blackberry

I have a similar issue but with a Z10. I don't see how importing SMS could work.

 

I'm able to provide my old SMS data from my N900 in a csv file and a SQLite Database.
