    Re: Editing inbox sms

    Hi totetote,
    I don't know the trivial solution but while searching for it, i saw a link which leads to Pyco Editor

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyco

    See it once maybe this will help you. In a screen shot given on same page the guy is even editing a PyS60 small program!

    Its brief intro was

    A very simple script to demonstrate the power of Python on Series 60. An application that allows users to edit different files format on the S60 mobile and save them. It provides others features like sending text as sms (text-to-sms) and text-to-speech
    IDEAS is all they need but still they think only Genius can give them that.

    IMHO, With the default inbuilt Inbox module you can not edit the SMS in your Inbox. You can only read the SMS and use its content, but can not edit the SMS in the Inbox. I am not sure if there are any 3rd party extensions that allow you to do this.

    I guess he meant to do it with PyS60 and not with Xplore.

    One more thing the mentioned method will only work for 2nd edition devices. For 3rd edition device its not possible as the system folder is a private or caged one.

    Open C:/Nokia/Mail folder through X-plore
    Use find option & search the file on date basis and press key 3 to view in hex editor..
