Question Import SMS from Android to iPhone?

Hi!
my sister got an Android phone for her birthday, but after some time, she realised, she doesn't like it so much...She decided to buy something more "user-friendly"(i don't understand her, she's crazy!!) and she decided to buy an iPhone.. But she has no idea, how to import her sms messages from Android to iPhone(if it is possible). Don't you know any solution, how to get it working??

Thanx a lot

Try saving the sms' to the sim card and just transfer the sim across, and save them to the phone.

if it works give me the android. Her loss can be my gain.

You can use "91 mobile assistant for android(visit www.91.com to download)" backup sms messages.
then,use "91 mobile assistant for iphone" restore your sms messages.
P.S:Your iphone must JB at first,and add weiphone(app.weiphone.com/cydia) by Cydia(install afc2).

SMS migrator only works for importing to android, not iphone.
91 mobile assistant android can only export as txt xml or csv,
91 mobile assistant iphone can only import .db files.

Is there no way to convert an xml into a db?

This is so amazing, with all this modern technology out there and no, there is no way to move data from product a to product b? It seems that this industry is indeed stuck in a thick cloud (of how to make things extremly hard for customers who want to switch).

Jailbreaking an iPhone 4s would not be that easy and I personally do not like to do this.

Why can't apple step up and create a "easy to transfer everything on the android to iPhone" application and google could do it vice versa? With what we have now it is either forget your data transfer and be stuck forever or throw it overboard and start from scratch. This is IT from the stone age and not the fancy miracle pixie dust stuff that is printed on the sales boxes.
