SMS Text App Graphical Issues
Ok guys im having an issue with the stock SMS text message app on my jailbroken iphone 3g on 2.1 firmware.
Just the other day i got a text message and when i opened it i noticed that when i scolled thru the message there was graphical type distortions on the top and the bottom of the screen.. And it frequently occurs now but i only notice it in the SMS app. the problem seems to correct itself if i close the SMS app and reopen it. But then it reoccurs again several texts later.
Has anyone else had or heard of this problem? And does this sound like a hardware problem with the phone or possibly just some sort of OS data corruption thats correctable with a restore?
I really hate to restore the phone cause of all the cool apps and themes i have installed but if i gotta do it ill possibly wait till firmware 2.2 comes out later this month.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Screenshots would help us see what's going on?

Thats a Great idea, i dont know why i havnt thought of that. I wonder if the built in iphone screenshot (home plus power/lock button) will capture the distortion? I will try to have everybody text me today so i can get some screenshots up.

I have had this issue too. Sometimes the bottom text box is gone too. I need to exit SMS and wait a sec and go back into it. I think it has to do with Winterboard and the font you have installed.

This isn't uncommon. Little stuff like flickering... and issue with the bottom text box being gone... and misc other weird stuff is just side effects of jailbreaking/winterboard/sms themes/mobile substrate... etc.

I was thinkin i had a unique problem at first. I've been googleing this problem and have not been able to get any results and i was scared i might have some sort of physical hardware problem with my phone cause i have had my other 2 2g iphones unlocked and jailbroken for quite a while now and have never seen this.I have also had my 3G jailbroken for months now and this problem just arose a few days ago. Maybe its a unique problem for the 2.1 firmware. But now that i see other people have heard of or had this problem too makes me a lil more at ease.

Ok Guys i've Been Trying To Get a Screenshot for days now but every time i try to use the built in screenshot on the iphone it just corrects the problem and takes a screenshot of a perfectly normal SMS screen. Maybe ill just have to take a physical picture with my other iphone cause i do not own a regular digital camera.
