My friend has recently changed their mobile number, so I've now got all their old texts in one long thread, and their new, recent texts in a different thread relating to their new mobile number.


I've tried adding the new mobile number to the "Contact" so that it shows both numbers, but that simply has the effect of showing the person's name on both threads!


How can I simply merge the texts so that it seamlessly shows all the old ones and then shows the new, current ones into one thread?

Hi hotlips69

Think that the 'Save Messages' functionality first introduced on 4.3 may be helpful for you.

SMS >> Hard Menu >> Save Messages

Select only the threads you want to merge and do the backup.

A XML file will be created. Now locate the file and send it to a desktop for better editing. I recommend Notepad++.

You will see that the XML content is a very simple markup code. I'm sure that after 2 minutes of attention you will know exactly what to do to merge the threads.

Hope this help somewhat.

Nice regards.
