    Hey everyone. Just wondering if anyone can help me out with a problem I'm having. I just got the 3GS and tried moving my texts from my 3G to my 3GS by SSH (it worked since I could see all of my texts) but I am not able to receive or send texts. Is there something I forgot to do? I see the badge icon but when I open the app, there is no new text. Thanks in advance.

    Can anyone help please?

    SSH into "/private/var/mobile/Library/SMS" and copy the entire folder onto your desktop. Then SSH into the new iPhone and replace the entire folder. Then set permissions to 755.

    Cool. Thanks for the reply! Can I just move the contents of the SMS folder to the new iPhone and set permissions for that folder? I didn't copy the folder itself of my other iPhone.

    I was able to get all my texts, but every time I tried sending a text the app would crash. I changed the permission to 777 for every file and it worked! Is there a difference between using 755 or 777?
