I'm currently using an iPhone 5S running iOS 8.1.1

I have an old sms.db file which i backed up a few years ago that I would like to read. It was probably from an iPhone 3GS or 4.

Is it possible to replace the current sms.db file on my iPhone 5S to read it? Any suggestions on what I should do? Or do I find a way to do it via PC?

Thanks a lot !
