Here is a guide to access & read iPhone SMS backup.
First, in order to have the most updated SMS backup, you must first sync the iPhone. Just plug your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes, navigate to your device page, click Sync.
Then, you have to locate where the backup is.
For Windows, it is at: %APPDATA%\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
where %APPDATA% means different in different Windows operating system version:
%APPDATA% = C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\Application Data\
%APPDATA% = C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming
Hint: to navigate to the folder, you can just copy the bold link to Start > Run…
For Mac, it is at:
where ~ represents your home directory
You will see a folder there. Open the folder and look for a file: 3d0d7e5fb2ce288813306e4d4636395e047a3d28.mddata
Copy to your desktop and open with SQLite editor. There is a good cross-platform SQLite editor in Firefox Extension, which can be found here . The best thing to use a SQLite editor is that you can query through the file and filter what you want to search for.
p.s. the backup can also be opened in standard text editor, such as Notepad++ or TextWrangler.
