I recently found one of my long-running text conversations cleared. I may have deleted it accidentally, but I would like to know when I did. Is there a system log that logs information at this level? Maybe in /var/log/ ?

This is a great question, but as far as I know, there aren't any logs that capture those events. I could be wrong, however. Let's see if somebody else has some more knowledge. –  Andrew Larsson May 23 '12 at 18:09
    
There is a an app in Cydia that just came out. It's called syslogman. You could try downloading it and seeing if it displays what you're looking for. There are logs for installing/uninstalling applications, so maybe there is an SMS folder in /var/mobile/Library/Logs. Could you see whether or not it's present? –  Andrew Larsson May 27 '12 at 23:04

iOS 5 had no such logs that I am aware of. To my knowledge, neither does iOS 6. The system logs record more "important" information regarding system operation and such.
