About this app

iSMS2droid can restore all your SMS texts and iMessages from an Apple iPhone backup into Android's messaging app - FOR FREE!

Please be aware that this app only works with unencrypted SMS databases. If you have encryption enabled for your backups, disabled it and create a new backup - you can of course enable encryption again after the import.

--- Instructions ---

Step 1) Check for detailed instructions on how to get your iPhone SMS database, then copy it via USB cable/Dropbox/etc. onto your Android phone.

Step 2) Start iSMS2droid and tap on "Import Messages" to select your iPhone SMS database file.

Step 3) Choose if you want to import all messages, or select specific conversations by contact.

Step 4) Rate or review this app on Google Play if you are happy with it.

If you have any issues with my app, please contact me at instead of leaving a bad rating or a negative review, as those help neither of us! ;-)

Very easy to use and understand. Just got a new phone and the transfer for messages messed up, tried this app after some searching and it worked like a charm! There's a bit of work involved with getting messages transferred, but if they're important to you then this is the app to use!

Wonderful app. I recommend clearing storage on default messaging app immediately after import completes, rather than waiting like the FAQ says. As far as I can tell, there are no downsides to this, and it forces reindexing immediately. Very helpful. Otherwise, completed quickly exactly as described. Instructions are clear and detailed. Would use again.

Followed the directions very carefully, and it did what it said it would. I was able to restore all 200,000 texts that were saved on my iphone. It took over an hour because so many. The pictures and links were removed, but I had already downloaded or backed those up prior. I opened the messages app, and they populated slowly, but surely. Read the instructions and read the FAQ. Thanks for the free app!
