Hi Curtis,

The actual sms database is located at /var/root/Library/SMS/

If you have winscp you need to download openssh from Cydia. This lets you log into your iPhone using Winscp. You then need to log in with username root and password alpine.

Go to the folder i mention above, and you can copy the full db back to your pc. The only way i have been able to view it is by putting it back onto an iPhone though, so someone may be able to tell you how to print them when you have them on your pc
