Is it possible to import sms messages (from android) ?
I'm not sure if there's an automatic way but SMS is in an sqlite file in
I was able to migrate mine from Blackberry to UT bu manually

@dreamwebspace afaik there is no import currently, but you can add a feature request on github's issue tracker, who know if any volunteer
Where do I start? Export to xml first?
@dreamwebspace I did it 5 years ago so I can't remember exactly but I think a good start is to know how android stores SMS or check if there are SMS exporting apps in Android to known formats which can be easily transferred to an sqlite database.
Probably xml > csv > sqlite
Importing SMS and Call Log is an important feature for people coming from Android IMHO.
There are some tools enabling backup/restore of SMS and Call log to/from IMAP on Android. Check https://search.f-droid.org/?q=sms+backup&lang=en for instance.
Any idea how difficult it would be to implement that for UBports?
That would also offer a backup/restore solution for such data.
Even Nextcloud offer such feature (at least for SMS) : https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/ocsms
Any idea where to add the feature request?

It can be quite a big work if we have to handle different backup format. Is there anything standard ?
