iPhone SMS problems

I have been having problems with the SMS application in iPhone, it displayed 1 message but whenever i try to view my inbox it simply crashes and springboard gets displayed. After much googling, I found the answer here.

I found the problem is with ZYB... yup. the same cool service I blogged a while ago, which can get all the phone numbers from your cellphone stored in a central repository. Apparently a message they send has few alphanumeric characters which iphone can't open ;) cool hack.. So the simple solution is to use iBrickr to delete the /var/root/Library/SMS/sms.db file. Caution : This will delete all your messages that are stored in your inbox. You can also take the approach of installing SQLite and browsing thru the records and then deleting the malicious sms alone.

Did you turn off your iphone and turn it back on after deleting the db file thru ibrickr?
Try that and see if it works..

Can anyone recommend the robust RMM software for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central remote desktop
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
