I currently have a Nokia Lumia 900 running
Windows mobile 7.5

& I'm contemplating moving to Samsung ATIV
tab or ATIV S (on Windows 8)

What are the ways to copy SMS messages
over from my Lumia 900 to the 2 Windows
8 devices?  Can I use my laptop's Win XP's
Outlook 2003 to do this (or it has to be
Outlook 2010?)

In the days I use HTC & Samsung on Windows
mobile 5 & mobile 6, there's a utility that could
take an image full backup of everything to (SMS,
contacts, reminders etc) to micro SD card
 between Windows mobile 5 & 6.  Is there
an equiv tool for Windows 7 & 8 ?
