    I transfered my sms messages from my old phone via bitpim and have them saved to my computer, and was wondering how i would go about transferring them to my (verizon )iPhone :confused:

    This might do it:

    iPhone Explorer

    Thanks, but i wasn't able to do it with that program. I've been extensively searching for a solution and have come up with nothing. Any other suggestions?

    Is your phone jailbroken?

    No, but if that what it takes then i have no problem jailbreaking it.
    Is their a jailbreak out that works with the verizon iPhone?

    The SMS files are located in the root, and you can't get to root without a JB.
    Also, you have to have an SMS.db file for the iphone to be able to read it.

    Would it be enough just to export them to a txt or doc file and put them in DropBox? Then you could view them any time you want, they just wouldn't actually be in the texting app. (DropBox is one of those cloud storage services with client apps for PCs, Macs and iOS. I use it all the time on my iPod.)

    That'd be a suitable alternative, but id still prefer to have them in my messages.

    I found this. I didn't analyze it deeply but it seems like it might help:
