    Hi to everybody , I'm a brand new owner of a 3GS iphone . Before that I was using a HTC Diamond as primary mobile and having used it for more than 1 year I now cam across the big problem to import my sms to the iPhone ...

    I already used the search here with no relevant result , I googled a lot but with no actual luck and I was hoping for some more competent help ....

    Thanks a lot for any suggestion on tricks or programs that would do the trick ... I already looked into "the missing sync for iphone" and "jeyo" but they don't work on 3.0

    I think you must copy the contacts from the windows phone to the SIM card. Then put the sim card into your iphone. And i believe their is an option on the iphone to import sim contacts. Its in Settings >> Mail, Contacts, Calendars >> and scroll down a bit and you will see a button that says "Import SIM Contacts".

    Hopefully this was helpful

    You can try going to the AT&T store to ask them to help you. When I got my 3GS, the rep at the AT&T store helped me transfer all of my contacts over from a T-Mobile SIM.

    ^ He is talking about copying his sms, not contacts..

    I have been searching for this as well, but with no luck..
    Let me know if you find any solution..

    Ohhh, this is awkward.....
    I dont know how i missed that lol

    The sms' are stored in a database file, which i doubt is compatible with a WM5 sms database file. Apart from manually forwarding them to your other phone, i cant think of a way?
