    If your pre gets 1/2 year old and your palm shutsdown at 20% just call me, and we will fix it.

    EDIT: I can't buy any payed apps even thought I live in germany and have a O2 card since I have have an american express card.

    Why feel for us. I've had my Pre for over a year without Preware and it works fine.

    All three of my devices are between 1 1/2 years old and a month old and are working as expected on various webOS versions.

    It would be very very hard for a normal individual to fully fake a SMS message on both sides.

    OK I give up. You won. I know you are from palm. You actually helped me once.
    I just wanted to point out, that preware is not evil. Palm is "promoting" preware and this is THE reason I didn't buy an eyefone but a palm again. I had alot of palms beginning with the original palm pilot.

    somline, I don't think anyone is calling Preware evil. Some of us choose not to have it for various reasons and our phones run fine in our opinions.

    Yep, you are correct on the onesidedness of the spoofing and that is kind of what I was getting at. If I receive a text message from you, I could edit the database and change that message's contents, and as long as it is the same length, I could edit that message to say something different. Unless the carriers do keep the content of the messages, all they would be able to say is that you sent me a message of a certain length at a certain date and time. And that would jive with what is on my phone except I've edited the contents to change what you said.

    Updated my original post, will post here again for those subscribed to this thread awaiting a good answer.

    You can try the below, they may or may not be there.

    Using WebOS Quick Install, go to Tools, then Receive File (you'll need to be in Developer mode to do this).
    enter: /var/luna/data/dbdata/PalmDatabase.db3 and select your save location.

    View the db3 file with: SQLite Database Browser

    In SQLite Database Browser, select the "Browse Data" tab and look for com_palm_pim_FolderEntry in the drop down menu.

    This will be pretty messy because Email and SMS's are stored in the same table within the database.

    The best way to view the data, in my opinion, would be to do an export in SQLite, export com_palm_pim_FolderEntry in csv format (be sure to include .csv at the end of the filename, SQLite doesn't include this for some reason), then open it up with Excel or similar app. I deleted all columns except for deviceTimeStamp, fromAddress, timeStamp, summary, and messageText. I then sorted the data by the timeStamp column which allowed me to view my messages (received and sent) in the order they occurred. Sent messages have no fromAddress so if you attempt to sort by both timeStamp and fromAddress your messages won't appear in order with received messages.

    Hope all that makes sense.

    If you found my post useful then please sign up for a Dropbox Account, I could use the extra 250mb of storage.
