Can I merge my texts and pictures from two different AppleIDs?

Hey scotty- hope all is well. Currently I have 2 iPhones - a work phone and a personal phone. Both phones have different Apple ID’s. I’d like to have both phone numbers on one phone ideally. In a perfect world I’d be able to move the text msgs and photos from my business Apple ID to my personal Apple ID. Is that possible?

So it sounds like you are abandoning the work AppleID for the personal one. Is that correct? If so, pictures wouldn’t be hard. Text messages will take some work. If we completely abandon the work AppleID then we could separate that phone number from that account therefore allowing it to marry a new account. It is possible to have several phone numbers attached to one AppleID but it is not possible for one phone number to be associated to two appleID’s at the same time.

The text piece of this will be the more challenging. We won’t be able to merge existing texts with each other but we can create an archive file of text messages in the form of a pdf if we had to. That would give you a searchable record of old texts but those would not be on a phone inside an app. They would be inside a document. Then going forward both phone numbers would receive text messages to the same device.

Not sure if you are planning to make calls from both numbers going forward but if so, you can consider having a dual sim for phone numbers so the phone will receive calls from two phone numbers. To my knowledge, even if you have a dual sim, you can still only use one AppleID.
