    Default SMS Storage location on Samsung Galaxy S4

    Hi! I need to get access to the SMS folder on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and I can't find it. Its not in the usual /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/mmssms.db. location??

    Anyone got any ideas? I asked the phone to transfer all text messages from a backup on iOS and it transferred so many it has crashed the messaging system so the only way apart from a full phone reset is to delete this file manually.

    Cheers

    How did you find and look at the /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/mmssms.db. location?
