    You cannot access that using the SDK. If you want to develop for Jailbroken phones only you can.

    I don't get threads like this. How can it POSSIBLY take 3 days to read the iPhone programming guide, more specifically the section where it talks about the application sandbox and realize what you want to do isn't possible using the official SDK?

    @robbieduncan, @ mccannmarc

    Thank u for your quick reply....but i would like to know that is there any application available in itunes store that fulfill my desired criteria...
    for eg..(sms export application, beam ME pro vCard exchange application) in itunes store...

    I know it can be done on an jailbroken iphone...

    But is it impossible in non-jailbroken iphone..???:confused:

    i hav done with extracting the contact list from iphone...bt left with extraction of sms, images, audio, notes, video etc..:(

    as i am an newbie to sch type of codings...I am sorry to ask such absurd query...:apple:

    Why don't you go look yourself? I'm not about to look for you.

    ok.....i hav seen the applications in the itunes store....none of the both match the criteria what i want...
    sms export application do match some of it....bt it is used to save or print SMS to your PC/MAC..

    newyz i thnk i hav concluded the post with an knowledge tht there is no way or code to extract files like (sms, audio, video, notes) from an non-jailbroken iphone...

    Thanks and i heartly appreciate for immediate reply...i am sorry if i hav been absurd for this query..!! :)
