When my iphone 4s ios 6.0.1 is in jailbroken mode the ams option does not appear but when I am in safemode the ams option icon in the messaging settings is there and on. In other words, I cannot send or receive text messages when my iphone is jailbroken but in safe mode I can. Help me because i like my iphone when it's jailbroken.

I can't send ams text messages. the messaging setting is still there. the app is still there i just cant hit send when it is not an iMessage. it will send iMessages but eventually starts sending them through my email and not my phone number

Most likely an errant app or tweak causing the problem. Read this

similar issue happened with me where not just SMS option but many other icons disappeared. the only way I had was to restore my device. but since 6.1.3 is out it aint just straight forward anymore. make sure you go through complete tutorial of downgrading before going ahead. in this process you will need your SHSH blobs, tinyumbrella, custom IPSW (if you using one). secondly at times if you using Pages+ it tends to hide few icons. if installed remove tht.

You cannot downgrade or restore a 4s to anything but 6.1.3 once it is on iOS6.
