    The color of the SMS balloons resides in the same directory as the SMS Application. The files are named Balloon_1.png and Balloon_2.png.
    Balloon_1.png is the color of YOUR text and Balloon_2.png is the color of the INCOMING text.
    cd /Applications/MobileSMS.app
    putfile Balloon_1.png
    putfile Balloon_1.png

    Attached are the two colors I use and I'm sure there are more out there.

    I havn't tried it, but you could open up each ballon in photoshop and change the opacity to 100% so that it can't be seen.

    I use WinSCP to SSH copy the png files from my iPhone but I cannot view them! When I try to open them in photoshop, it says it cannot parse the file.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I believe you have to use a program (fixpng) to make the .png files from the iphone viewable. try doing a search on here or on google. you should be able ti find it.

    Thanks to mzkaye729. I've found the program called fixpng. It didn't come up easily searched on google so I will post the link to the program here.

    It fixes the PNG files copied from your iPhone to your PC, making the PNG files readable on your PC.

    Good Luck all!

    There is an easier way. Cydia has text ballons. Type "texts" or "ballons" in Cydia search. You need to search on both because you will get different results for them.

    There are blue, purple, gray, and more.

    Download and turn them on in winterboard

    On a dutch forum (SMS balloons - iPhone Forum - alles over de Apple iPhone en iPhone 3G) there were posted some bubbles by Croiman :



    But now I would like to combine, for example, the blue balloon with the little guy in it. Something like :



    Is there anyone out there who can help me out, because I keep having problems with the transparancy.
