So if you have your old phone still, I'd restore all the texts on it (I am assuming that would still work)...install the program I use...back it up and upload the backup file to dropbox or google drive.

Then on your M8, install the program I use and then bring down that backup file from Google Drive (or Dropbox) and get all of your old texts on the M8

Ya mine is SMS Backup+

But good idea i still have not sold my G2, so ill try to restore it and use ur app.

thanks!!

Hope it works! And as previously stated...to restore messages in Kit Kat..

SMS Backup and Restore will prompt you telling you it needs to be the default messaging app. Allow that and then you can restore....then go back into your settings and change the default messaging app to whatever you use for texting...probably the stock messaging app I presume.
