You missed period "." at the end of cp command:
cp MyDocs/smsimporter MyDocs/sms.csv .

cd /home/user
cp MyDocs/smsimporter MyDocs/sms.csv .
chmod +x smsimporter
run-standalone.sh ./smsimporter sms.csv
Please make backup of your messages in N900 before importing your old SMS messages.
thanks a lot!!!

just few questions...

I copied from the PC to .documents the two files (smsimporter and sms.csv
but in x termina I cant use the command
cp MyDocs/smsimporter MyDocs/sms.csv .
and then the
run-standalone.sh ./smsimporter sms.csv
I can only use the
chmod +x smsimporter
but only if i go to
cd /home/user/MyDocs/.documents

excellent work, worked like a charm for me, exported all 768 messages from n85 onto my n900 just needs a good frontend for it

thanks again

This is a great utility & really should be basic functionality supported by some nokia software.
I have limited technical experience but I will try it.
A GUI would be great. Where do we vote?
