Switching from Iphone To Android, can I keep SMS threads?


Dec 25, 2020
I am thinking about switching to Android, from Iphone X, and I have 5 years of SMS text message threads which I do not want to lose. Is there any way to do this easily when I switch to Android? Will I lose all those SMS conversations ? Your recommendations, insights and guidance is greatly appreciated.
