    Basically, I used sms backup and restore to backup my conversation with my girlfriend since her phone went blank. I put the backup into her new phone but the messages are still showing as my number was the reciever not hers. New messages created a new conversation.
    Please tell me how can I fix it and have one conversation in her phone...

    You can't use your backup to restore her messages. Basically the messages are backed up as you the receiver because it's a backup of your messages, not hers.

    The backup file is created from the point of view of your phone.
    To get it switched to the point of view of her phone, you would need to edit the XML file:
    Replace her number with yours in the "other party" field.
    Swap the "sent" and "received" codes in the "type" field.

    In all honesty, it is probably not worth the effort. She now has the old conversation on her phone for reference; starting a new thread is not a bad thing.
