Restoring messages from Torch 9800 to Bold 9900



I have a backup from Torch 9800 and trying restore it on Bold 9900.


Unfortunately restoring the messages is not completed. It stops on 50%. (Messages backup is around 7000+) 


Is there any issue with the version of the OS of the phone?


Thank you.

Hi dommelm


Try restoring everything but the Messages database to test.  You can do this by clicking on "Select device data and settings" after you select the backup to restore.

Hi Cpts,


Thank you for your reply.


Already tried that one. There is no error on importing the messages.


Is it the size of the backup(messages)?


Thank you.
