    Actually its real easy, did it on a Win XP Box.
    Connect through iPhoneinterface then navigate to:
    iPhone://Applications/MobileSMS.app#
    now the 2 files you want to replace are: Balloon_1.png and Balloon_2.png
    so the command would be:
    putfile /Applications/MobileSMS.app/Balloon_1.png
    putfile /Applications/MobileSMS.app/Balloon_2.png

    here is what it looks like, and at the bottom you can find the 2 files i made, so if you want a different color just change them, but keep it the same size i have it.

    Oh i forget who, but someone wanted to see what it looked like with different home icons so you can see them here:

    If I can find a way to 'set' a bubble to each contact maybe we can put there pictures? I know it will be hard maybe it cant be done.

    For the balloons im assuming they are 43x22, and bg transparent but obviously when you send a text it stretches, I'm assuming it would stretch whatever pic you put it in, only problem i cant think of anything good, if u have any ideas ill give it a go

    Easiest way to change the color of the bubble in photoshop is just use the color replacement tool, and it will carry the highlights over in the respective color ;)
