    Default sms.db HELP PLEASE!
    Ok so I was on iFile the other day. I find the sms.db file and i open it in text editor. I click edit on accident but right away I click done. So nothing could possibly go wrong? WRONG! I go to my SMS and they are ALL GONE! Well good thing I did a backup 5 minutes ago. Could anyone tell me how to get the sms.db backup file, and change it so i can ssh it back on my iphone. any help would be great. thanks

    I would assume if you sync your phone it would replace it. Have you tried that?

    if you right click the phone in itunes (in the left sidebar) it should give you the option to copy a backup to the iphone ... try that
