How to fix some mysterious problems.

I just posted a rather large question and it didn't get asked. Here is the short version :)

My iMessage/SMS is no longer working. I get notifications and badges, but when the app opens up nothing is there. People tell me that my messages are going through and I even see them I'm the notification center when they text back, but it doesn't show who it's from and I can't view it. Things I've tried so far: Respring and rebooting, using icleaner pro, closing the iMessage app and reopening it, using ilex rat to remove all jailbreak tweaks and packages. I don't know how this happened or how to fix it. I haven't even come across a problem like this :/ someone please help!

Try deleting /var/mobile/Library/SMS/sms.db, db-shm and db-wal with iFile or another filesystem explorer. Reboot the phone and test.

Thank you so much! I don't even know how or what happened to cause all that trouble.
