    Yes, but accessing them them is a PAIN to find them as they are stored much like the music in the iPod app. Instead I would suggest emailing them to yourself and using attachment saver to save them to the filesystem.

    The file path is /private/var/mobile/Library/SMS/Parts/*

    Frostbite is correct in that the structure is exactly like music storage, and might take you a while to sort through if you have a lot of files. Here's how I nullified that task into about 2 minutes.

    1. SSH and transferred the entire Parts folder to my desktop.
    2. Search in Parts folder (with subfolders) for files called *.jpg
    3. Dragged results to my Picture library.

    Like I said, it only took a couple minutes and most of that was transfer time, not actual work. I assume it would take much longer to email them individually to yourself or save them to the roll - not to mention tedious.

    /two cents

    "A pain?" Download iPhoneExplorer (mac and pc), it has a setting to change the default root to the Camera Roll so you can just copy them right out over USB.

    MMS Photos are not in the camera roll unless you manually save them. This is what the OP is trying to avoid.
