[Q] New Nexus phone, questions about migrating everything over.
So, I busted the digitizer on my old S3 so I decided to get a nice shiny Nexus 5, along with the daunting task of transferring all of my data from my old phone to the new phone.
So, the biggest question I have right now is how the hell do I get all of my SMS/MMS messages over? I mean, the S3 uses the old messaging app, but the Nexus uses hangouts for its messaging goodness. Is it actually possible to somehow transfer all my old messages to hangouts? If not, would it be possible to put the old messaging app on there and move everything over as an archive? Finally if neither of those are viable options is there a win32/64 program that can just read the messaging database?
Anyway, since I'm here, any recommendations for a better launcher? It seems as though the launcher that comes with it is a bit too well, barebones for my taste, not to mention completely unconfigurable (from what I've gathered). Also, any ROMs worth their salt? I mean other than the launcher, I'm pretty impressed with the stock ROM. It's ridiculously snappy/responsive, but I'm totally open to suggestions.
