    I don't think this is possible. I would just start fresh.

    You can save the SMS file on one iPhone and import to another iPhone (or back to the same one after a restore). It's easy but the iPhones must be jailbroken.

    Going from a Blackberry to iPhone won't work because it's a different file type and operating system.

    When I had my blackberry bold for 2-3 months and then decided to go back to the iPhone I was looking for a way to do this and came up with nothing so I just figured I would start fresh.

    that is incredibly depressing. I can't email myself for 2 reasons, the phone no longer has service, and theres 8046 text messages i want to keep. I guess i'll be carrying around both phones haha

    You can back them up to a GMail account from your BlackBerry via a program like DexRex, but getting them into the iPhone is not going to happen. You can transfer text messages from an old BlackBerry to a new BlackBerry via BB Desktop Manager. You can transfer text messages from an old iPhone to a new iPhone via iCloud backups. But cross-platform sms transfer doesn't work for anybody.
