Not much to say here.

A very basic tool that will import the N900 conversations to N9/N950.
I cooked it in a couple of hours.

The git repository is here: https://gitorious.org/n900-comhist-i...comhist-import

You can either build a package yourself or use the attached .deb here (The attached deb will only import text messages).

Please check the README file first: https://gitorious.org/n900-comhist-i.../master/README

I'm not interested in any farther development for it and cannot provide any support.

It worked for me for a few times BUT I'm not responsible if it screws up anything
Attached Files
File Type: deb n900-comhist-import_0.2-1_armel.deb (19.9 KB, 535 views)

Thanks it worked great!.

I have successfully transferred all my 999 messages!

Yes, initially I thought there was some limitation or bug, but it turns out that I had 999 messages on my phone.

Glad it worked for you.

I discovered a problem with importing text messages with attached contact cards, you get an empty message instead.

There might be other issues but unfortunately I'm not going to fix them.

Yes, I was going to ask for a date option (i.e. import messages only since date specified) but didn't want to tempt you to continue development

So the deb installed without error on the n9, but I'm now stumped on how to actually initiate the transfer of conversations from my n900.

I've used this to import my messages, and while it looks like they're all there, the threads aren't being displayed in quite the right order and many of the threads have only one side of the conversation. Anyone else hetting this?

Same thing here, but compared to not having my old SMS messages at all, I'll take this any day!

Maybe if you open the database (from the N900) in one of the viewer applications you might be able to figure out what went wrong.

In my case all went ok (i think) and I had 1K messages.
