Hmm.. I noticed the date / time problem as well.. And I think I shouldn't import the text messages from my girl, apparently 4300 messages makes the loading veeeeeeeery slow :D.
Arg, should have known that..

No I didnt mean that..but you can always mess with the sqlite database and create about 10 threads out of those 4300 messages :D That would work well.

Hmm.. I think I'm doing something wrong..
The order the text messages appear are completely wrong. The last date it shows is from my previous phone instead the date of text messages received on my Hero ^^.
Any idea?

When you open up your exported Messages in the App SMSImporter, does it shows the right send and receive Dates?

Jep, better: it displays the correct date.

But when I import my text messages in Android, the last text message received in my old phone is on top of the list, like I never received a text message on my new phone...

That might be a better way to explain it yeah.
The threadlist-title (last message) is also the last message on my previous phone..

I have around 2000 or 3000 sms that I would like to import, and first I was disillusioned by thinking of inserting all those manually through the SQLite Browser program. I tried your app and I can confirm that there is a problem with the time in version 0.4. The epoch values are all converted to the nearest whole integers (00:00:00 in my case) and thus some messages are displayed on top of each other since the time values for each message are totally equal.

However I managed to manipulate with the epoch values in the date column in the database by using the database editor, so that the message order of sent and received was swapped correctly the next time I pushed the mmssms.db file to its proper location, called the chown and chmod commands and rebooted the phone afterwards. I would recommend you to fix it in another release, otherwise great app and thanks a lot for doing this and making us all avoid the hard work!

It's a bit of a shame though that you are required to have the .NET Framework installed before it is possible to execute the file. It gives me some problems as I don't want to 'mess up' this computer by installing it, but fortunately I have access to a public school pc that had it installed already by Windows Update.

I managed to export all my sms' from a UIQ2.1 phone (Motorola A1000) by using the SMS Diary application (an alternative freeware application called ReadSMS is available here). Then I used the regular expressions in Notepad++ to convert the date format to be suitable for your XML converter and finally inserted the messages into the XML structure. If you're continuing your work with this app, I would recommend you to look on how you could implement this platform also. The Symbian OS doesn't store its messages in a database like environment. Instead it contains one Index file in the C:\system\Mail root and alle the messages are stored one-on-one as binaries in hexadecimal folders and files, for instance C:\system\Mail \ 00001001_S\e106f8e (ignore space)

Here's a sample file of the HTML-results produced by the SMS Diary application:
<html>

The only difference between the example of sent messages above and received messages is that To: is replaced with From: and the align="right" is made left. In this document the output is chronological and ascending with separators as every passes by month.
<a name=YYYYM(M)></a><div align="center">
<br/>
<h2 align="center">Month YYYY</h2>
<p>
</p>
</div>
Y = year
M = month minus 1 - e.g. January equals 0, December equals 1

It is also possible to view a document sorted by separators between each different contact name, chronologically ascending. The code is as follows:
<a name=4249134287></a><div align="center">
<br/>
<h2 align="center">Name Middlename Surname 1</h2>
<p>
</p>
</div>

Hey nye som aldrende folk. Så er der møde i morgen klokken 18.30. Jeg holder oplæg om falske løsninger på klimaproblemerne og vi skal også snakke om aktion og ny kontaktperson. Skriv lige en sms tilbage om du kommer eller ej, så vi kan få overblik over om vi kan være i kælderen.<br/>Ps. hvis du vil have et punkt på dagsordenen, så skriv også tilbage til mig.<br/>

Would you be able to share the source code for your app. I could use it in the app I am trying to build to transfer Nokia as well as WinMO SMS to Android in general.

Hi,

By using your method, I was able to view the sms from my Dopod 818 Windows Mobile 5 in the data grid.

But, when I try to write to the mmssms.db file, I got an error that says:
SQLite error
no such table

Pls see the attached file for the full error message.

I've tried many methods/software for many days. But still no result. I would appreciate very much if you could help.

My android phone is Sony Ericcson X10. I've rooted it to Global Generic firmware 2.1

Many thanks in advanced!

Jean
