    It's a sqlite database, so you'll see exactly what all of those things are, if you just open it up in a db program.  I wouldn't try to parse the raw data too much. The only thing that you might miss when looking at in a database program is the tab versus space thing or any other hidden or non-printing characters. 

     

    I'm not sure how up to date this is, but here's an explanation of the various tables/columns you'll find in the database:  http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/IMessage

    HI

     

    Not sure that is helpful as those characters appear on the Mac Database as the messages sent and the synced messages returning as well.

     

    They appear from the Copy and Paste I did from your post rather than the double spaces I tried when typing my own message.

    This appears to be fixed in iOS 6.1 -- at least on my phone.  Can others confirm?

    Hi,

     

    Not yet.

     

    My iTunes  is telling me I have stuff on the iPhone that is not in iTunes and I don't know how to sync in this direction.

    I'm unable to replicate this issue. Using an iPhone 4S with iOS 6.1.3 on AT&T in the US.

    It was fixed in one of the iOS updates since this post. (6.1?)

     

    That said, I think they fixed it on the phone side but not on the sender side.  So, if you send a message from your mac to an iPhone that doesn't have an updated iOS, the message might still be truncated. I could be wrong, though.  To be honest, nobody has told me that they've gotten a truncated message in quite some time.  Maybe they fixed it on the mac side too now or perhaps everyone I know has updated their iOS.

    There was a post today on MacRumors that said it's still an issue in a very specific case.  It has something to do with word spacing.  From my experience, it was pretty much fixed in the 6.1 update but I guess there is still a specific scenario where it will occur.  You can check out the post for the specifics but it has something to do iMessage not showing the last line in some word spacing situations which makes the text look hidden or missing.

    Nice find, Eric.  And, you're right.  The bug is still there, even with the latest iOS.  It just seems to be slightly different.  Here's a message that still will truncate (from that thread):

     

    "

    The best prize is a surprise "

     

    Make sure you have the extra return and space at the end, i.e.

     

    "<return>

    The best prize is a surprise<space>"

     

    The people in that thread have made a few good observations that agrees with our previous assessment that it is a wrapping issue.   I do wonder why the old messages that used to get truncated aren't any more...

    I could not repeat the bug when the iPhone 5 language was set to Finnish.

     

    But if I switch the language to English, then the last word of certain phrases is dropped off.

     

    For example, I send the following iMessage (without quotation marks, notice the trailing space at the end) from iPhone 5 (iOS 6.1.3). If the iPhone is set to Finnish, it displays OK in the sent blue bubble. But if I switch to English, then the last word is not displayed (I can copy the whole text from the bubble, though):

     

    "I could be the next Obama "
