    Default Can I delete these files? /var/mobile/Library/SMS/Attachments
    /var/mobile/Library/SMS/Attachments. Like the title says. It seems that the iphone keeps a log of allllllllllll data (pics/vids/etc) sent or received from SMS. I deleted a few and it didn't delete them from my camera roll. Am I safe to delete them all? Just looking to free up some space.

    I'm not gonna say yes I don't like messing with anything in ifile as deleting. Make a backup of it just case something happens on ya pc or Mac. Just to be on the safe side

    Yes, you should be able to. Don't rely on me though. They should just be attachments you have received through iMessage and SMS (audio, video, images etc). Once you save an image or a video to your Camera Roll it saves to your DCIM folder.

    Just make a backup to be sure its nothing important!
