Integrating texts from two devices

I have a number of texts on my old 8220 that I want to keep; I recently got a new 8220 but startd using it before I had transferred the data from the old one so have a new set of texts to keep.


I made a back-up before transferring the data, but it doesn't seem to be possible to have the texts from both devices as the transfer substituted the old set for the new rather than adding them as I expected.


Does anyone know a way to combine the two sets of texts?

Re: Integrating texts from two devices

Hello mel_fox,


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.


Currently there is no method to combine to sets of SMS backups into one group on your BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8220 smartphone. Any time a backup file is restored, it will overwrite the existing database.


Thank you.
