    Maybe you can store the text on ur memory card and transfer that way!

    Download SMS Backup and Restore and backup the messages on your old phone. Transfer the backup file to your new phone and restore using the app.

    This is the way to go. The evo does not back up the text messages in a way that can be read by the gs3. The only way I know to do this is a stand alone app. SMS Backup does as well as any of them.

    I've used Google Voice for several years now so I've never had to worry about this...highly recommended, especially for Sprint users!

    I'll have to agree with this as well. (like the other posts before this one)

    Use back up & message to email in the app store it backs up everything to your gmail. Its has a little blue envelope with orange hands as the icon. Can't remember the developer right now.

    I know this thread is for S3 but I was reading it to find out how to transfer my txt to new phone. Had a Droid Pro with micro card. Now have a Turbo. After reading this I downloaded several SMS Backup & Restore apps. The only one that worked and is totally amazing has a brownish coloring filing cabinet. The creator is MDroid Apps. Plugged old phone into computer via USB cable. DL'd the app, Exported to Dropbox, DL'd app to new phone, Imported from Dropbox - Everything is there!! All the way back to my deceased spouse's last txt in 2010.

    Thank you for creating this thread and for the information!

    You could try using an app like Share Apps http://market.android.com/details?id...gers.shareapps to share the actual link to the application in question https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sbackuprestore rather than describing the color of the icon, etc.
    Also please note that this app (and the majority of similar apps) only backup SMS, not MMS. The most reliable way to backup MMS is to use the Kies software on your computer.
