    Hello,

    Any way to copy the text messages on my OG Droid to my Nexus?

    Thanks!

    An app like MyBackupPro can back them up, then move it from your sd card to the Gnex and restore with same app.

    well, I say that, but not everything has worked real well going to the Gnex... not sure if it's ICS or the different storage format or what... but worth a shot.

    I can say 100% that SMS backup and restore works. Unfortunately it does not work for picture messages though.
