    Ok, so maybe I'm losing it. I had checked my VZW 9930 and it said the software was up to date. I don't recall what version it was. Last night, I hooked it up to the Desktop Software and when I clicked on the Application list, it showed an OS update available. It ran through the steps for the usual OS update and the phone is working great! The empty SMS threads returning after reboot problem is solved as are a few other SMS issues.

    The phone is now showing the current version as 7.1.0 Bundle 457.

    Figured I'd share this and see if anyone else has come across this.

    Maybe I just missed an update then. I always checked the updates wirelessly through the phone and that 1 one never came up. Interesting...

    7.1.0.163 is the lates official. If you are up for trying a leaked version give .267 a try battery life is amazing with it.

    I have version .163, but the bundle was different. It just never came up on my device as an update. It came up when I hooked it up to the Desktop Manager. Thanks for the input.

    Doesn't Verizon's include PTT, whereas Sprint's doesn't? It's the same OS, 163 = 163.

    Edit: the bundle's aren't different:

    VZW: BlackBerry Device Software v7.1 Release 457 (updated 1/10/2012)

    Sprint: BlackBerry Handheld Software v7.1.0.457 (Multilanguage) Package Version: 7.1.0.457 Consisting of:Applications 7.1.0.163
