Transfer Texts to New Phone

What phone do you have? Moto G6

What plan are you on? My Choice 1G

Does your plan include data, or just talk & text? Yes


Issue Description

I just purchased a Moto G6 and went through the process to move everything from my old Moto G4plus over. Everything came over except my text messages in Messages. Any tips on how to get those texts transferred?

I used SMS Backup & Restore to do just that! I had used SMS Backup+ in the past, but it was sloooooooooooooooow. Keep in mind that if there are images in your messages they’ll slow things down on the data transfer, and will gobble up that data if you’re not on wifi. You can also have it pull call logs over too, if that’s important to you.

It was really pretty straightforward.
