How to Transfer Text Messages between iPhone and Samsung S9/8/7

July. . Posted by to Android Topic

You may not know that Android is a open system while iOS is a closed system and an isolated system that has no interaction with its external environment, that means iOS system was somehow limiting what you could do on your iPhone or iPod device, on the other hand, it will bring too much inconvenience to you when you need to move contacts, messages or other data between iPhone and Android phone, (like Samsung Galaxy S9).

Here we don't debate the benefits of Android and iOS system and which mobile system is better, we just need to find a useful bridge for users to link iOS and Android system so that users can directly share the data between these two different mobile system. We assume that there are large number of text messages stored on your old phone,  if you've just got a new iPhone device device or upgraded to new version, you'll be very excited to run it, but one of the most frustrated things is that you can't simply transfer messages from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S9 or vice versa due to iOS is a closed system, it doesn't t make it particularly easy to move your SMS from iPhone to Android, there is no need to invest a lot of time and energy into the features of mobile system itself,  don't expect system itself to help you move the messages and other data.  

But I'd like to move users into the other direction, you should not miss and need to pay more attention an excellent application - Phone Transfer ( Windows or Mac ), it provides users with full access permission to read the content stored on iPhone device without missing a beat, it can easily and safely penetrate a closed iOS device without iTunes and other app, then copy SMS from iPhone to Galaxy S6/S5 or vice versa due with just a few clicks, then you can get all your personal data transferring to another platform seems like a lot of hassle.
