    can i check with you, the PKGbackup can only be used when the phone is jailbroken right?

    what if i restore my phone back to original settings (no longer jailbroken), and all my backed up sms are in the PKGbackup, then do i have to jail break my phone to download PKGbackup again?

    so if i continue to jailbreak and download the PKGbackup again, will my sms be still backed up in the database even if the app is being removed from my phone due to restore back to original settings?

    thank you so much.
