    Windows? Mac?

    If Windows you can look in:
    c:\Documents and Settings\<yourname>\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Those are backup files. One of them contains my sms.db

    what if I've never backed it up before? I deleted it in the phone.... Can I recover it still? Maybe some kind of dump file or something?

    iTunes automatically backs up the file everytime you sync the phone.
    Just have a look at those files, and see if you find anything usefull.
    Worst case scenario open them in notepad, and you should see the content.

    Nope. The deleted messages are garbage collected on the fly, so your messages simply don't exist on the phone anymore.
    The only option I could see was to recover backup, but if you didn't have any.. tough.
