    Default Sync as new phone
    Question..
    I want to sync my iPhone as a new phone (firmware 3.0 reasons)..
    Is there some way I can sync my text messages over to it, like I would with my contacts?

    Don't take my word for it (never tried) -- But if I were trying it, the first thing I would do is copy the current SMS database (/private/var/mobile/Library/SMS/sms.db) to my computer using the handy dandy SSH/WinSCP combo. Then set-up as new, and replace the new empty database file with this one and see what happens.

    Actually, I would also copy the complete contents of /Applications/MobileSMS.app as well, just in case a plist was also necessary.

    Don't forget to reboot after replacing the database.
