Moving text messages from Samsung Brightside

I have received a replacement phone for our Samsung Brightside. The phone has an option to move or copy the text messages to the sd card in the phone which I did. I can't find a way to now move those text messages from the sd card to the new replacement phone. It like the old one offers the option to copy the text messages to the sd card but no option to move them back or even access them from the card. I spoke with someone last night that suggested downloading an app that would do it but the app doesn't seem to be offered for the phone. Anyone have any ideas or experience with this? Seems there must be a way to retrieve the text's since there is a way to save them, otherwise why would the phone even have the option to save them? I must be missing something easy... Thank you for any help you can offer.

Hello Gwynvt
I'm very sorry this device don't have the option to download a 3rd party application to retrieve the text messages. You maybe able to purchase a memory card reader and retrieve them that way.
