How to Copy iPhone Text Messages to LG Phone Seamlessly

I have been using iPhone for years, from iPhone 4s all the way to iPhone 7. I really enjoy iOS for its smoothness but just feels little bit stale. Lately, I bought a new LG Android. It feels great and just as good as iPhone. Now, I wonder if it is possible to sync the text message from iPhone to LG. I hate the cloud stuff and don't want to transfer manually. Just need a directly transfer.

iPhone and Android devices have been dominating in the smartphone market. If you have already made a switch from iPhone to LG and leave no stone unturned in transferring text messages from iPhone over to LG, then this post is of great help.

Moving to a different platform doesn't mean you have to abandon the existing text message in iPhone. Although Apple's tight control isn't friendly to Android when it comes to exchanging data, there is a way to break this barrier, which allows you to keep the iPhone messages with you when switching to LG.

Phone Transfer is the way to go. It is an outstanding data migrating utility, dedicated to migrating text messages from iPhone to LG in several clicks, without losing existing texts on LG. With this program, you can also transfer other data like contacts, call history, photos, music and video.

When you text other iOS device users with your own iPhone, the conversations will be delivered via iMessage if the device is connected to the internet. If you forget to disable iMessage when you move to the LG Android world, the text messages from iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and Mac) won't be received, except for the regular messages from Android phones.

Before the transition, deregister your phone number from iMessage on iPhone and other devices associated with Apple ID. Go to Settings, tap iMessage and slide the toggle button to off position. By the way, turn off FaceTime as well.
