    I have VZW Galaxy S3 and a new iPhone 5. I have a ton of text messages on the GS3 that I'd like to transfer over to the iPhone. After searching, it appears there's a couple of programs that will (supposedly) do this, but I didn't know if they would work with the new iPhone. The two I found are moborobo and backuptrans but I couldn't confirm if they work well or if they support the iPhone 5.

    So just looking for some advice or perhaps someone else who has successfully transferred SMS messages from Android to iPhone.

    On most phones can't you move messages to your sim card? Not very many, but you could do a few 'trips', so to speak.

    I think the third-party tool is the best solution, if you don't want to use it, you can try to export your Android messages to computer first.
