    Hello All,

    Don't you just hate that you can't sync or delete partial SMS's????
    That there is actually a cap on how many SMS's you can actually have on the iPhone?


    Here are step-by-step instructions on how to take your sms's off the iphone, view them, edit them, etc....

    1. Assuming that everyone already know how to SFTP; navigate to the /private/var/root/Library/SMS directory and download the sms.db file

    2. If you dont already have it, download Sqlite Database Browser (which can be found here: http://sourceforge.net/project/downl...use_mirror=umn

    3. Open Sqlite, click the Browse Data tab, then message in the drop down table.

    4. Your entire SMS log will now be displayed and you can make any changes you want to the logs.

    5. Now simply save your changes and upload back to the above folder.

    6. You can also export your log as a CSV file and keep on your computer.

    Hope this helps..... Enjoy!!!
