My new iPhone 5 is on its way.  I have many text messages on my current Samsung basic phone.  Is there any way to get these text messages onto the new iPhone 5?  I need to keep them.

I was hoping for something similar to back up assistant that would just save all of them and then load them on my new phone so I don't have to individually e-mail all of them!  But I think back up assistant is for contacts only.

They can't save them for privacy I think. Only apple you can iCloud save them. You can forword them by putting that old phone onto a different number if you have more then 1 number and forword to your new phone when you have your new phone.

Backup messages from old phone with backup assistant and then go Backuptrans for help.
