    i guess all the expert here can hardly solve your problem, If your Phone has a memory chips or card inserted on it, maybe you can insert the memory card to the card reader and delete the files that is annoying your phone and if possible format the memory card. (if in case memory card is present).



    Or else the only ultimate solution is to bring your phone to the nearest service center, i am sure they can touch your problem in personal. Its hard to solve the problem when it is not in your hand.



    May this help!

    if you are able to format the whole phone then do it and see.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 22, 2008

    the virus may be from system to phone......
    if you are using a memory card...try formatting it...

    Thanks for the info. I will look into it and get back to you ASAP.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 14, 2008

    Say, did you try power cycling your phone?

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 14, 2008

    If that doesn't work try this.



    1. Retrieve your sms.db from your iPhone, this is located in /private/var/root/Library/SMS
    2. Open sms.db on your notebook/desktop using sqlite. You may download the Mac version here - >http://c-command.com/tools/sqlite
    3. Open your sms.db via commandline, sqlite3 sms.db
    4. Type : select * from message ;
    5. Command should show you all of the messages you currently have in your inbox.
    6. For example,

    1344|ȩp|963174693||0|0|
    1345|ȩp|963173793||0|0|
    1346|ȩp|963172893||0|0|
    1347|ȩp|963171993||0|0|

    7. Type: delete from message where rowid= ;
    8. So , I did: delete from message where rowid=1344;
    9. I did that for messages with rowids 1344-1347
    10. Upload sms.db to where it was, /private/var/root/Library/SMS
    11. Press sleep/wake button, then you should be able to access your inbox again.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 14, 2008

    Sorry my mistake...I will look into it some more and get back to you ASAP.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 15, 2008

    download the software ibrickr from ibrickr.com and go to the folder root/library/sms/ and del the file sms.db or
    use Installer to install MobileFinder
    1. tap on the “~” button in the top right corner
    2. tap on Library, scroll down and tap on SMS, The sms.db file should appear and will be highlighted.
    3 tap on File in the bottom left corner
    4 tap on Delete in the bottom row
    5 click in the Home button to exit Finder
    5 reboot your iPhone
    6 tap on the SMS application to launch it.
    This will erase all sms’s but the application will now work.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 15, 2008

    DON't reformat/reset your phone. It could be locked again.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 15, 2008

    Did you try what I posted?



    Download the program from here.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 15, 2008

    Here is an easier way to solve your problem:



    Take note that this solution will wipe out your SMS messages, but will quickly allow you to use the SMS application again.

    - use Installer to install MobileFinder (it's under Productivity)
    - launch Finder on the iPhone
    - tap on the "~" button in the top right corner
    - tap on Library, scroll down and tap on SMS, The sms.db file should appear and will be highlighted.
    - tap on File in the bottom left corner
    - tap on Delete in the bottom row
    - click in the Home button to exit Finder
    - reboot your iPhone
    - tap on the SMS application to launch it.

    You'll have a clean slate SMS application that now works.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 15, 2008

    Did you try going to '' Reset '' and ''Erase All Content and Settings''? This also wipes out everything but the SMS app will work after this.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 15, 2008

    Try my second last post before the last one...don't try the reset just yet.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 18, 2008

    Does your connection to the internet work? If you update like you said....your phone will be locked and you will need to unlock it again.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 18, 2008

    What I mean to ask was does your phone have access to internet on it's own?

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 22, 2008

    You didn't tell me if you can access the internet with your phone? If you can you don't need to PC to reach the sms.db.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 22, 2008

    At what firmware is it now?

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 22, 2008

    Don't panic, it can be unlocked.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 22, 2008

    Have a look here. Free unlock for you iPhone.



    http://iphone.unlock.no/

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 25, 2008

    Installer for Safari?

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Feb 26, 2008

    The sms problem is still there even after everything? I thought only Safari was messed up?
