    is it possible to alter messages in the sms.db file ?

    wondering if its possible to add in or edit the time stamps of messages or create a new text in an existing message group under sqlite database?

    i used to to delete non essential texts like blank ones people sent me for me to call them because they were on payg but i need to show the girlfriend that i was contacted by someone first an not the other way round


    i have been playing with sqlite database browser but i cant seem to edit or add in messages , and since each text has its own message id will the whole database update each text accordingly or could i delete some other useless texts in a way to create some space to add in a few texts

    this is quite a nail biter as im accused of cheating but because i deleted the messages i was sent it looks as if i have deleted everything .... cant win with women !

    Are you trying to restore a deleted message, edit an existing message (to make it look as if it was sent before it was) or insert a new message that was never actually sent?

    Somehow, I don't think Technology is the answer to this one....

    yeh a bit of editing and inserting maybe , im going to have to flannel up the messages to make sure she beleives it as what i told her what had been sent was just not enough , the messages i deleted were pretty meaningless but she will still think if i got them restored and showed her them they would still be suspicious to her .... almost a losing battle unless i can put some convincing messages in there
