I'm a new convert to the Android system having been an Apple man since time began.
I haven't left Apple and still own and use two Apple phones, but the S7 Edge is streets ahead of the iPhone 6 Plus and I like to have the best and latest mobile at my fingertips.

How can I transfer the text history from my iPhone 6 Plus to my Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge?

Presuming the S6 Edge Forum is similar to the S7 Edge (No S7 Edge Forum found)

I have tried the following without success:

SmartSwitch: Transferred contacts and calendar data, but not SMS.
Copy My Data: Transferred all photos but SMS transfer not an option.

Tried to transfer the Text History file from the iPhone to the S7 Edge whereby the file type was changed to .db but that didn't work either.

Is there a tried and tested way of achieving the transfer?

Thanks in advance.

Having issues in transferring across SMS and MMS to S7 using SmartSwitch. Everything else transferred without problem....but the messages has been left on 0% for over 10 hours now. I even left it over night and still no joy.

Smart Switch may not work for iPhone so your idea is not available!

Well, I have ever tried to transfer text messages from iPhone 5 to my new Samsung S7 with phone data transfer software from Jihosoft, which can quickly transfer contacts, text Messages, call Logs, calendar, photos, videos, music and apps between Android and iOS devices.

It's a nice thought transferring message from your iPhone to a Samsung. And it is indeed doable, though some may not think so. All you do is download the SMS, tranform them into iPhone format and upload them. Yes, seems a little complicated. But, you can also use tools, which will save you a lot of time.

You could use a program like TxtArchive on the Android to transfer the texts via email. This would give her a record of them which she could view in her email or other program that will read text files. I used TxtArchive on all my Android phones for backing up messages. I'm sure there are other programs but it's one I've used and been happy with.

Best of luck.

A professional phone to phone transfer software can help you do that.

Just run the software on the computer, and connect two devices on your computer,

Begin to transfer files like messages between two phones.
