Hello to all,
my wife switched to windows phone 8.1 (lumia 925) from android 2.2. Actually I'm wondering how to restore sms..
It's a big threat it seems. I've an xml file with all my sms-data inside. How can i import it into my windows phone?

Why not import the messages directly using Bluetooth? Android 2.2 is practically antique, but I think it's supported by Nokia's "Transfer My Data" app (free, should have been pre-installed but is in the Store if not).

Hmm. In that case, the only approach that comes to mind is to use a less-obsolete phone that can either sync your SMS from somewhere (does Android back them up?) or can import your file.

In theory, you could probably write an app (on PC, even) that would parse the XML and upload the messages to the WP8 message sync service, but that service is not documented in any way that I know of so it would take a lot of work.
