    HTC One
    Model: HTC PN072
    Hardware version: 0004

    I need to transfer all my text messages from my current HTC One to a new LG G5. Neither HTC or LG have been able to assist me. Contacted my carrier, Sprint, they don't have a clue.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    I think you can do that with a 3rd party messenger app. I've done it with Textra.

    It looks like Textra is a text app. I need an app that will allow me to copy all the text messages on my HTC ONE to my LG G5.

    I just checked on Textra, and it doesn't look like it had an option. (I've just switched over to using Google Messenger,looking for RCS which should be coming shortly on Sprint). Check out EvolveSMS, though. I seem to remember that it had an option where you could back up all your texts to your SD card, and then restore it on your new phone.

    Don't think Evolvesms will work. I'm trying to backup all my text messages on HTC One, then transfer to LG G5. Probably going to have to use app that will load HTC texts to PC, then copy (import) into LG. I don't know if the LG will "read" the HTC texts and can't get a definitive answer from HTC, LG, or Sprint.

    For several years I've used the app SMS Backup + by Jan Berkel; you can find it on the Play Store. I went from my HTC One m7 to my LG G5 all wirelessly restored from the backup it keeps on your Google account.
