    I have a few questions:

    Where is the file directory for the icon?

    And I know the name should be Messages.png but what should be the size/pixle of the icon?

    I am on iphone4 4.2.1

    icon name is icon@2x.png

    but as mr gravy says, get BiteSMS or theme your phone with a proper theme using the Bundles method

    ok got it. I replaced the icon with a 128 x 128 icon I found online and just backedup the source file on the phone using iphone explorer although preview doesnt show the file for some reason.. weird... anyways.. I changed the filename for the file i downloaded and up swapped it simple as that.
    Thanks for the info :)

    And i hate bitesms too much rubbish for something that is simple. I installed mark that msg, and quickreply and thats all I need from a sms app. :)

    haha, yeah we dont have a canadian version but the US version is available on cable. But I for one do not watch the news, its all rubbish. I browse CNN and CBC and BBC and thats all the news I need, I choose what I read and no one is forcing something down my 'throat'... LOL

    As to the original image not showing up in Preview, if you do want to open it, use this.

    This is awesome! I was thinking of reverting the other day
    Just a note, make sure to resize the OP's file to the dimensions of the two find on the iPhone (icon.png and icon-Small.png) and replace both

    no resizing needed as far as I can tell 128 x 128 works fine, from what I read it was supposed to be 114 x 114...
