Who knows in which file the "search results" from SMS are stored?

    Hi,

    I just restored from my 3Gs 3.01 to a new 3Gs 4.01 these files:

    - sms.db
    - sms-legacey.db
    - Parts (folder)
    - Drafts (folder)

    to /var/mobile/Library/SMS. Gave the right permission and everything seems to work but the search function. I can only search in SMS that I've sent AFTER the restore/trasfer. It's not possible to search in old messages. I assume that the "search results" are stored in some file (database?) which has also to be transferred but I really don't know which it is.

    Could anyone hint me to that file. I'd really appreciate this!
    Thank you very much.

    Found the path on iOS4 (on <iOS4 there are no such files)

    SMSSearchdb.sqlitedb
    SMSSearchidx.spotlight
    updates.SMSSearch.spotlight

    under /var/mobile/Library/Spotlight/com.apple.MobileSMS
