    Default SMS Crashing
    For anyone having problems with their SMS application crashing, after getting an SMS from a bank, a web SMS form, or some other source that sends an AlphaNumeric address, you can do the following (assuming Jailbroken, Installer installed):

    - Install MobileTerminal
    - Install Erica's Utilities

    Go into Terminal and enter the following command:

    /usr/local/bin/sqlite3 /var/root/Library/SMS/sms.db 'update message set address=555 where lower(address) != upper(address);'

    - Optionally add an Address Book entry for #555 (maybe name it "Bad Sender" or "iPhone F&*#ker")

    - Optionally turn this command into a shell script and install Tapp, run the script from there

    Unfortunately the iPhone seems to outright reject some senders rather than put them into the database for future crashing against; so if you don't get an expected SMS it's one of those.

    Hope this helps somebody out there with a crashing SMS app.
