I currently have an Android phone, and I recently ordered a BQ Aquaris 4.5 Ubuntu Touch Edition. I wonder if there is a way to import SMS/MMS from my Android phone, to my BQ Aquaris 4.5... I know we can import contacts, but I don't know about SMS and MMS.


  • The article you sent me, tells you can backup your Android data, if you would like to reinstall Android later. But I want to backup my Android data, to import it on Ubuntu Touch, it's not the same. ;-)

  • Yes the backup can be restored through certain commands which I am not aware of. Hope some member may post instructions for restoring backup. Mar 27, 2015 at 17:40

All SMS are stored in $HOME/.local/share/history-service/history.sqlite.

So you can try (if you know well sqlite) to import all of it manually via SQLite (but, before do anything, backup the sqlite file, you might lose all of your sms is you do an mistake).

So an ability in SQL and XML is required to follow this "method".
