Default Sms back up issue

I just came here from my gs4 today but I'm having issues trying to restore my sms from the app sms back up. It gave me my call log but with no contacts attached the the calls but it didn't give me a single text message. I've tried it 3 times...it just tells me "13000 duplicates". I just googled it and I guess the back up is placed on my sdcard on my other phone. I just dropped it in and I'm currently waiting to see if this restore will work. Has anyone else done this yet?

Same result after the latest restore. Never had an issue before. Any ideas?

if there is still a problem, go to your local AT&T store... if they have a celibrate machine.. .which 90% of them do, they can transfer sms from one phone to another no problem

I found an option within the phones settings that transfers data from your previous phone to the HTC one. You need to install HTC transfer from the playstore on the old device. Music, photos and bookmarks transfered fine but the texts still didnt. Oh well...at least I got the important stuff. Nice feature BTW

I would think each device has a certain file extention@ back up files for sms and they are different between the two your trying transfer from...thats prolly the issue....as suggested the store usually can transfer them without an issue

if you are rooted, Try app ops on the play store (by Lars something). Enable it and go to its menu and find your backup app. Then enable write permission
