How to Migrate Text Messages from One Android to Another
For most HTC users, making a switch to a new iPhone can be exciting. But the reality is far from pleasant when you are trying to get the data (contacts, sms, music, photos...) in old HTC phone and put them into new iPhone. Because a large amount of the vital data are still stored in your old HTC handset, the traditional way of transferring the data from HTC to iPhone—dragging and dropping the data between folders using the computer as a bridge— is time consuming and inefficient. So are there any effective methods to copy contents from HTC to an iPhone?
The data migrating process may sound complicated and overwhelming but, actually, it is simpler than you might think. Phone Transfer software, working as a bridge cross mobile platforms, is an effective and easy-to-use data transferring program. It is capable of transferring data from HTC smartphone to iPhone as easy as hooking the two devices with your computer, selecting sorts of data you want to migrate, and hitting Start Copy button.
With it, you can even back up data on your computer and get it back whenever you need.
Let's take a look at how perfectly it works in moving files from HTC to iPhone without losing important data! See also: Best iPhone data recovery software

With regard to iPhone, when it is hooked up to the computer, a prompt will pop up asking whether you trust the computer or not. Click Trust to continue.
Please pay attention to the sending's device and receiving's device, don't mix them up. A click of Flip button makes the transferring journey go the opposite way from iPhone to HTC smartphone.
Step 2: Select content you want to transfer from the old HTC device
Once two devices connected, the program should automatically recognize your source device (see left in screenshot) at once and show all of the data available for transferring from HTC over to an iPhone like contacts, photos, music, videos and others in the center box of the program's window.
Next, you need to select the type of content you want to transfer from HTC over to iPhone in the center box (all files are checked in this example).
Be aware of the amount of data your new iPhone can hold. You can tick the "Clear the data before copy" option in the lower right corner place to empty the iPhone for more storage memory.
Step 3: Transfer data on HTC to iPhone
After everything is ready, just click Start Copy button at the bottom center of the screen to commence transferring HTC data files into iPhone.
After a little while, Your new iPhone will be populated with all the content (music, photos, contacts, videos, calendar, etc.) from your old HTC Android phone!
