    There are a couple of recent threads here which cover this pretty well. Should be on 1st or 2nd page of threads I would think.

    Look in here:

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ChatKit.framework

    On your phone, the outgoing text file is "Balloon_1.png" while the incoming is "Balloon_2.png". On the iPhone 4, the outgoing text file is "Balloon_1@2x.png" while the incoming is "Balloon_2@2x.png".

    Note that biteSMS uses these balloons as well.

    It simpler to use a WinterBoard theme to do this because it will survive updates. I made up myself to just for the balloons.

    I can help you change the background for sure. Not sure about resizing the icons though. You use ssh?

    And do you know how to change the color of the sms bubbles.?

    Thank you very much. I haven't looked in there yet, are those the bubbles? Or are those the colors? And what would I do with them?

    It's time for you to do a search here and find the recent topics on this that answer all of these questions and more.

    Thanks, I found sound colored bubbles that I was able to replace my balloon_1 and balloon_2 bubbles with. They were already colored.

    Big Thanks to Sidewinder for telling me where to go into the phone.

    to use the image from ur 3gs u need to blow it up twice the size and name it with a @2x. But usually that causes the image to become pixelated.
