There are certain situations where you need to transfer text messages to a new phone. When your phone is malfunctioning and you have certain important text messages you need in the future, or when you believe your phone may be lost or get stolen sometime. Sometimes you may just decide to buy a new phone and you don’t want to lose your old but important text messages. So can you transfer text messages from one phone to another without losing? Here is the solution for you.

To transfer text messages from phone to phone, you need MobileTrans for Mac ( or MobileTrans for Windows), particularly when you have a huge number or volume of messages to transfer at the same time. Also, when your phone does not have enough storage memory to store all your text, this mobile transfer tool will help transfer some of those messages to another phone or to your computer for backup. And you can restore the backup file to any of your phone later. See more features:
