I need some of the messages on a old backup of my sms.db on my mac. I opened it after extracting it in sqlite but the date doesn't appear nor can I email them without altering the data.

I need the sms's as evidence and hence require the data to be intact..sender's number is there but date is weird numbers.

Also I don't want to alter my existing sms.db file on my iphone as that too contains the messages for evidence.

Is there anyway? Heard about sms switcher app on cydia but not sure if it will alter my files. I was thinking in theory it should work, if I just copied my old sms.db in to sms switcher's multiple sms library. Just worried about alteration in data.

Any ideas?
