    Default iphone Backup of SMS plz help soon!
    Hey everyone,

    I fanally decided to get 3.0 from 2.2.1 so I saved my sms, contacts, phone boook etc using SSH.

    The problem is that everything works once copy/pasted with SSH back on the iphone, except the sms messages.

    So, my question is, now that I have all my sms in a file (sms.db) which are from 2.2.1, is there any way of opening the txt messages on the computer or making them work with 3.0??.

    I have some important sms there and i need to get data out of them..

    Please help !

    (running iphone 3g)

    It should work as long as you put it in the right folder... I can't think of the path off the top of my head... maybe someone else can give it to you. As far as I know, the .db file should work in both fws.
