backup texts 1.6 to 2.1


May 11, 2010
Hi All,

Like every user probably did, I did a backup of my contacts and text messages before I updated to 2.1. I used the standard messaging app for this, thinking that I would be able to import them using the new messaging app.

However in 2.1, the messaging app does not have the feature to import the texts. And know I don't have any idear on how to get my texts back.

I already tried to install the original mmsg app from android 1.6, but that is a no go, as I expected.

Does someone have a clue on how to recover this ?

Else I have to revert back to 1.6, import and backup again using a different app and then update to 2.1 again. Losing all my setting for the second time.
