Posted by on .

Change is the rule of Nature, and thus, many things in our life keep on changing time to time. Same is with the gadgets and smartphones. We keep changing our smartphones frequently because once in a while the new version of our phone's brand or some other brands launch latest and more upgraded phones in the market. It's human nature that we get attracted to new things we see around us. When Android's new version gets launched, we become impatient to update our phone as soon as possible. In a similar fashion, when a brand launches a new phone in the market with the new features, we desire to get that one.


We are talking about Android phones in this article primarily. When we get a new Android phone, there are data on the old phone that need to be copied or moved to our new phone so that we don't lose our old data such as pictures, videos, apps, photos, SMS, etc. When it comes to such work, there are a lot of ways to do. However, not all of the ways to transfer SMS from one phone to another are good. But, a few are really great.


In this post, there are mentioning there ways to move SMS from one Android Phone to Another, choose the most suitable for you.


Tutorial: Transfer SMS from Android to Android with Android Apps

There are certain apps such as SMS Backup & Restore and others that you can use to backup the data of your old phone, and then restore the same data on the new phone. You just need to perform the backup on your old phone and save the backup to your SD card or anywhere you want as shown option in the app.

Once the backup is done, take your new phone in hand, and use the same App, and tap on Restore, and show the path of the backup file. Make sure you insert the SD card in the new phone in which you backup reside. Your SMS and other data will be restored on the new phone.

Part 2 : Transfer Messages from Android to Another Using Bluetooth

You can use Bluetooth to transfer your files to new phone. SMS files can also be transferred using it as well. For this, you have to find out the file that needs to be copied to a new phone in order to get those text messages on the new phone.

I don't recommend this method though because if you don't know much about the data files, you won't feel comfortable doing it. Your phones may get disconnected or stuck several times during the transfer, it's error-prone and time consuming. Also, Bluetooth may keep disconnecting if you are transferring large data. All you have to do is to connect both of the android device using Bluetooth, and transfer the SMS backup file to new device, and make sure you transfer the file to the same path as it is old phone.

Part 3: Copy Messages from Android to Another Using Phone Transfer
