Use the customize app found on installer. Make sure you also get the custom images package as well.

Steps to doing this..
- Go HERE and download the right version for you
- Plug in your iPhone[IF NOT ALREADY]
- Run the file
- Go on your iPhone
- Go to installer
- You might have to download the community sources 2.5 things.
- Find customize, install it.
- Once installed, go back to installer on your phone
- Download the designer image set..
Now when you go into customize, the SMS bubbles will be there.. along with a few other neat things

thanks so much dude... but one last question. when i'm done and get the SMS bubble colors i want, is there anyway to get installer off of my phone?

Sure, just use ibrickr or ifuntastic, which ever you are using, and uninstall the installer app

If you use a program like SummerBoard,
you can hide the 4th row and have all your other apps (Installer, Customize, etc.) hidden until you scroll down.

hey, i'd like to do that too but it's not working. i've downloaded customize and the two designer packs. when i select which colours i want and press ok, they're still the same. i've tried shutting the phone off and still the same problem. any idea why mine's not working? thanks for your help!

Hey ekologik, are you talking about on 1.1.3? If so, then customize is broken on 1.1.3
You can SSH into your phone and go here:

Thanks for the tip

As root go to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ChatKit.framework and rename 'Balloon_1~iphone.png' to 'Balloon_1~iphone.bak' and rename 'Balloon_2~iphone.png' to 'Balloon_2~iphone.bak'. Then move the chat bubbles that you want to use into the same directory and name them 'Balloon_1~iphone.png' for incoming and 'Balloon_2~iphone.png' for outgoing.
