    Hi,
    I would like to link a file (~/Library/SMS/sms.db ) on my iPhone to the dropbox folder so that is synched but I can't find the dropbox folder on the iPhone.

    Is this somehow possible ?

    I don't think this would be possible. I might be wrong, but my understanding of the dropbox iPhone app, is that it is just accessing dropbox on the web, i.e. it's not creating a sync folder locally like on the mac version. The curremy version of the app is basically just a glorified webapp I think. And the favourites part of the app, is just used to download files from dropbox on the web to a local cache, which doesn't get synced.

    ok, I that's what I feared. It looks like the app just downloads the file you want to access every time without a local cache at all.

    Thanks,

    Yeah, a file only gets cached if you add it as a favourite.

    That's correct. It's possible though that an application could be made to work on jailbroken phones.. but it doesn't exist at the moment.
