"Custom import" texts to GMail

7 posts in this topic

Unfortunately my phone is slightly aged and doesn't have any text exporting options. I found a way to save texts to a file on my computer though, for example in an excel sheet, without losing data like timestamps and sender/receiver infos. As I would like to avoid simply deleting old texts, I was hoping I could find a way to export the contents of this file to GMail.

Does anyone know a trick that would allow one to import text messages into an email client, from a file such as xls or even just txt? One could then use IMAP to move things to GMail. I've played around with Thunderbird but it doesn't seem to allow importing messages from a file. I don't have Outlook. Maybe can someone tell me if it will be worth looking into for this?

Thanks a lot for suggestions.

What platform is your phone running on? Windows Mobile (what version?) or Android?

It's a Samsung phone from ~3 years ago. How do I find out its OS?

Unfortunately, your phone is running on a custom platform based on Java and chances for you to export anything to Gmail are pretty much non-existent.

Yes, that's why I was asking for help on a custom way. But interesting to know about the OS.
