There are no easy ways to do so.

There is some 3rd party software which appears to do what you want, but they are not free.

Backuptrans is an example.

IF you use Verizon Messaging on your android and install that app on the iPhone, your sms will be added when you sync the device. However, you must have been using Verizon Messaging to send/receive those sms. You cannot install it after the fact to sync older messages.

Hey there prettysenshi2,

I know its always nice to save text messages in order to refer back to important bits of information. With our brand new Verizon Messages app you are able to sync your text messages over all your devices. Visit  http://bit.ly/LC2S2C for details.

Please know that this will not sync iMessages since those are sent over WiFi and are an apple service. For assistance with those you may want to try the third party app that rcschnoor suggested.
