    do you have a theme installed that changed any files in your SMS app? Are you using the SMS app that came with the iPhone or a third party messaging app?

    I installed spire earlier today and most of my apps would not work, uninstalled spire back to normal.

    Do I need to Jb again since I used .10b1?

    Ah too right you are, I'm now running corona too haha =P
    As for the app crashing maybe just try a fresh restore, kinda a long process though..

    Nope, just install Corona 1.0.3 over it... via Cydia.

    My SMS is still crashing. I don't know what else to do, and to add insult to injury, I can't send MMS, my camera icon is greyed out. Only for standard Text message, but for iMessage friends, the camera icon is there, weird...

    I finally figured out the problem, I had a third party app that was causing the problem.

    Go get BiteSMS it's a better texting app idk if it will still crash as it could be something from Cydia you have installed but it allows for replying from ANYWHERE go check it out

    If he doesn't respond the way you figure out the problem app in Cydia is:

    Try installing SBSettings, respring, to open SBSettings slide finger across Statusbar

    Press Power, Safe Mode
    Safemode turns ALL hacks off now try it

    Does it work correctly in SafeMode?

    If so then it is from Cydia

    To deactivate Cydia stuff without uninstalling:
    First: Scroll your finger along the top again and exit safe mode
    Secound: go SBSettings->More->Mobile Substrate Addons
    Turn stuff off then exit and if the problem disappears it's one of the however many you turned off, slowly turn them on till you find the problem then turn the problem addon ON then uninstall it from Cydia if you don't turn it on before you uninstall some problems will stick around

    Please list the problem app below and thank me on site if all goes well if this doesn't work or u need help please just ask
