Default How to transfer SMS from another device to BB?

Please Login to Remove!

I have over 800 SMS in my HTC touch pro 2. However, I have to return the phone soon so I am desperate to save those texts.
Have anyone had any ideas?

You can't transfer them. Best bet is to email them to yourself and save them as text files. When you have your new BB you can use the web-based SMS portal (does O2 have this? most US carriers do) from your carrier to send them to yourself as new SMS messages. You'll lose the date in the header, but you can put this in line one of the saved text file.

The HTC has a memory card option and available data cables. You may be able to move the text messages to the memory card or use a data cable to copy them to a pc if the format on the memory card is compatible
