Thread: SMS Virus?

  1. #1
    Default SMS Virus?
    Last night I recived an SMS with 'Harry Potter' in the subject matter, it looked like just another junk text so I pressed ignore but since then I have been unable to open my SMS. Everytime I press the SMS icon it looks like it opens and then it closes by itself returning to the main icon page.

    I have tried doing a soft resest but that makes no difference, every other function seems to be working fine. Anyone else expierienced a similar problem... what should I do to fix it?

    Default got the same thing
    the same thing happened to me.
    what i did is delete the SMS.db from /private/var/root/Library/SMS. I lost all of my sms but it worked.

    just delete your sms.db, there's a bug with certain sms formats.

    Thanks for that, now being a newbie to the world of modding do I do this through the terminal?

    Did any of you guys try using SMSD or weTool to delete just that message?
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
