12-17-2007, 08:36 PM #1SMS Partition App Offering $100!!
Okay. I'm getting desperate here. I'm a business man, who needs to store my text messages. I'm offering $100 to whoever can create an app that will:
1.) back up my texts to my computer (PC)
2.) partition my SMS messages, so my iPhone can hold more than 1,000 messages.
You can post this anywhere, I just need someone to create this app for me. PM me if you need more info, have any questions, or have created or found an app that will do what I need.
And depending on how well the APP works, there may be more than $100USD in it for ya!

It's pretty easy to back up your SMS, if you want me to make an app (for free) to do it I could, but it's pretty much really easy to do over SSH. If you want more info about doing that yourself just ask.
And about the whole partitioning thing, I'm guessing it's something built in with the app. Someone would need to re-write the app or do some major hacking.Thanks,

I have a program already to back up my SMS messages (iDataBackup) but I'd like a program that will automatically back-up the messages for me PLUS a way for me to change the partition for space allowed.-Cody

Send me a pm, I can get your iPhone to store however many SMS you need.

Couldn't something like this be accomplished using some sort of a symlink? I believe I remember seeing that offered as a solution to creating more application space at some point.

You need to mess with the SMS db's.

There's a tweak available on Installer using: http://iphone.totalmatrix.net as a source and it allows you to bypass the current 1000 SMS message limit for the iPhone. The tweak can be found under Tweaks (1.1.1) and is called "No SMS Limit". The archived messages while hidden from the stock iPhone text messaging application can all be accessed using SMSD which i previously posted about.

If you want to help with that development, donate to Amrut who develops SMSD (which I used in this tweak).
I am also working on a tweak for unlimited "recent calls" archive and intelligent "speed dial" building itself based on amount of recent calls by number.

does anyone have information on changing the 75k limit?
I'm on iOS 4.0.1, and would rather not lose anything from may of 07 -> current.
Any information would be helpful as the repo that had the old app seems to be gone, and the app is no where to be found.
and..yes, sorry to bump a thread from the dead. But it contained all the info that I could find from searching for the past 3hrs
