Hi All:

I just switched from blackberry to iphone. while i was able to transfer my contacts and calendar by syncing with an exchange, i could not do the same with 4000+ sms on the blackberry. I tried using the berrymover app but it wasnt very useful either. I have successfully converted the blackberry smses into xml and csv format, but have no way of converting them to the sms.db format used by iphone. I have searched all over the internet but havent found any guide/suggestions that seem to be working.

Could someone please help. I am willing to go any lengths to convert the smses.

Thank you in advance

The limiting factor is iOS here in that I don't think you can import SMS into iOS. I certainly could be wrong, but I have never come across any method of doing this.

the import part is true, but I was hoping to convert the xml or csv file to a squlite file and copying it to the sms directory in a jailbroken iphone using scp.
