Transfer My Data app updated by Nokia to include pictures and text messages from your old phone
If pictures cannot be transferred using the app, Nokia suggests using SkyDrive. You might want to consider that anyway just to save time. While contacts and text messages don't take that long to transfer, pictures on the other hand, can try your patience. For example, moving over 1,684 pictures from a Nokia 808 PureView showed an estimated transfer time of 462 minutes which is nearly 8 hours!
Version 18.104.22.168 of Transfer My Data is available for free from the Windows Phone Store.

Yeah right lol. Why would I want a WP when I have Android? Pretend you are a salesman...and convince me to switch (if you can).

But your a biased narrow minded android fanboy, that's impossible!

The only thing that transfers directly with the app are the contacts for Android, iOS, and BlackBerry phones. For many people, text messages are as important (more important?) as contacts and photos. I doubt Android, iOS or BB users are going to see any value in the app.
App sounds more like an effort to convert legacy Nokia phone owners to the WP Nokia phones.

Agree. Hope it can make messages transferring supported.
