HI, Im being moved to EE from BT mobile & am worried that I might lose all my saved SMS messages. Does anyone know if this happens?
If you're on Android you can use SMS backup & Restore either as a safeguard or to migrate your messages as necessary. I'm sure there will be similar apps for iPhone.
thanks, I have a Samsung S10e. Ive been told by others that the sms messages should be safe but I cant find any (free) way to transfer them to my W7 PC. Iwas recommended a program called Droid transfer, but at £30 I thought a bit too much. I was also told Samsung smart switch could do this but it saves them in some bizarre format that cannot be read!
Not sure about W7 but on W10 you can pair your phone to your PC and send/receive SMS messages on it easy-peasy and at no additional cost.
Unless you are getting a new phone the messages will just stay where they are, they aren't saved on the SIM like they used to be.
