    Just jailbroke my 3GS yesterday with redsn0w.
    I did not restore from backup, so I had a fresh image. I wanted my old call logs and sms logs so I used iPhone Backup Extractor to pull the Library/SMS files from an old backup then I SSH'd in and copied them over. All my old SMS logs show.

    However, now when I try to respond to old text messages or create a new one, the second i tap the "send" button, the messages app closes.

    Here's what Ive done so far to try and fix:

    1) Turn of 3G and try EDGE - shuts down
    2) Reboot - shuts down
    3) Reload the fresh (empty) SMS folder that I backed up + reboot - shuts down

    Anybody have any suggestions or run into this before?

    edit: dont know if it matters, but I loaded the tether hack after the jailbreak.

    I would try this:

    DFU your phone back to a clean 3.0 install

    Run RedSn0w

    Check it's working OK

    Restore your full backup, not just part

    Check again that it still works

    Delete the things you don't want on your phone anymore

    I have the exact same problem except I also backed up my contacts. Now my phone app doesn't work in adition to my SMS app. Permisions are fine, I'm thinking somehow manual restores just don't work.
