    That sounds like it should work, all you need to know are the formats that PC Suite exports to and the that SMS Backup and Restore uses and then write something to convert from the former to the latter.
    You export as .csv, Android uses XML but i think it needs to be converted with XSL. But it depends if sms backup and restore can read csv

    I know it's CSV, but it still has a format - i.e. "[sender number / name], [received time], [message text]", so unless they happen to coincide you'll still need to do some transformation.

    You're right, this is how android does it i think

    protocol – Protocol used by the message, its mostly 0 in case of SMS messages.

    address – The phone number of the sender/recipient.

    date – The Java date representation (including millisecond) of the time when the message was sent/received. Check out www.epochconverter.com for information on how to do the conversion from other languages to Java.

    type – Sent = 2, Received = 1.

    subject – Subject of the message, its always null in case of SMS messages.

    body – The content of the message.

    toa – n/a, default to null.

    sc_toa – n/a, default to null.

    service_center – The service center for the received message, null in case of sent messages.

    read – Read Message = 1, Unread Message = 0.

    status – None = -1, Complete = 0, Pending = 32, Failed = 64.

    readable_date – Optional field that has the date in a human readable format.

    contact_name – Optional field that has the name of the contact.

    Hi guys, I have a question regarding wifi connection on the HTC Desire S. Is there any reason why a phone would indicate that it is connected to the router (after I have keyed in the security password & checked to make sure the signal is good) BUT not connect to the internet? I have turned the wireless setting on. It's driving me mad!

    Can anyone help?

    Go to Wireless Settings, hit Menu button then Advanced.

    Is "Use static IP" ticked?
    What IP address does it give you?

    It wasn't ticked, so I ticked it now. Internet still not connecting.

    IP Address: 192.168.1.64 (different from the IP address that shows when I run a 'what is my ip address etc' on my laptop internet)

    ....?

    Lol, it should be unticked.

    your IP address should be similar to your laptop, but not identical. Guessing your laptop is 192.168.1.x?

    How is it over 3G data - does that work?
    Is it just the browser that doesn't work? For example, can you get the market up when connected via wifi?

    I have now unticked it.... 3G works, all browsers fail to load when wifi only is connected. What is 'the market'?

    Hmmm... that's odd.

    I'm assuming this is very new phone... Could try a factory reset. It's in Settings > SD & Phone storage.

    Might just have some buggy settings in it somewhere...

    I remember the Hero was unable to connect to my router due to some kind of firmware conflict.
    Had to flash a special image to the router to get it to allow me to actually use the internet (would connect fine).

    Though I'd think they'd have sorted that kind of hardware issue since then.

    I thought that, but wasn't sure. Will it be expensive to repair?

    I don't even own one and I can tell that it's a stupid review.

    Also, I'm *this* close to going out and buying a Samsung Galaxy SII but I'm ever so slightly hesitant as the iPhone 5 is most likely coming out in September. :erm:
