transfer all SMS (and only SMS) from one phone to another?

Hi all...hope someone can help with this...it's drving me crazy and I'm running out of time.

I have two HTC Touches (old and new) and I also have Sprite Backup. I used Sprite to copy everything over (including the 'Email' option), and all the SMS messages came with. Problem was the 5 other email accounts got completely messed up. 3 of the 5 don't show, and when I try to add them it says they alreay exist...plus the today screen still says 2 unread, but I can't get to whatever account has them.

I reset the new Touch, and ran Sprite without email...everything looks good, but no SMS messages. I can add the email accounts fine, but is there something else (free) that will allow me to transfer over the SMS messages (about 2k+ of them), but nothing else?

If there is no program to do it, does anyone know if I can connect the old one to a PC...find the actual files somewhere, copy them to the PC, then transfer them to the new Touch in the smae location to have them sho wup?

Sorry for the novel...and sorry iof I posted in the wrong place! I have to return the old phone soon so as not to be charged, so any help thats quick is MUCH appreciated!

Why don't you use PPCPimBackup (DotFred's PPCPimBackup) to backup the SMS messages from one phone, copy the backup file to the new phone and then use the same utility to restore them again. You need to make sure the destination accounts exist before you restore....

The utility runs on the phone, so you'll need to use ActiveSync (or a memory card) to get it on to both phones, plus some way of getting the backup file off one and on to the other.....

There's a user manual on the home page - www.dotfred.net - that you can refer to if you get stuck ;) I have a vague recollection that there may be issues with threaded SMS (in WM6.x), but it's only vague......if in doubt, RTFM :D

Hope this helps....and that it was quick enough :)

Mark.
