    Default [question] SMS.db 2 questions

    In 1.1.4 the SMS archive is stored in /var/mobile/Library/SMS/sms.db.
    So what is the use of sms.db located in: /private/var/mobile/Library/SMS/ ?

    Another question:
    I copied sms.db from both locations above to my PC, then sent a SMS to my iPhone and copied the new sms.db files again. When I check the size of these files, to my surprise the new files have exactly the same size (18432B) as the old ones. How can this be possible?

    Thanks

    /var/anything is the same as /private/var/anything

    same file, same directory, different name.

    It's UNIX down there!

    Thanks jakecigar, I just figured that out too.
    How about the second question? Where does the SMS application read new messages if sms.db is unchanged after I've sent a new SMS?

    it's a database! adding a record doesn't usually make the file larger!

    if you dumped the database to an extract file, it would be a different size.
