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,

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.
