Hi, I have a problem with getting my old texts to S5. I've used the sms backup app, and samsung switch none of them worked as its saying its not compatible
any other ideas ?
I managed to transfer other stuff with my backup pro, but that also didn't work on texts

Wow that's a new one I've used SMS backup and have no problem with transferring my SMS backups. Within SMS backup you can set up to upload your backups to drop box try using that and see if that works for you.

Samusng Smart Switch Mobile on the app market did it fine for me. Just held the phones next to each other and all my messages transferred.
