    Hey everyone...

    I just picked up the new curve today and have a few questions.... Does anyone know how to change the way the SMS messages are displayed? I'm upgrading from the old curve and i noticed the SMS' are now stored in a "chat" format just like BBM's. I was wondering if anyone knows how to change this. Also has anyone really noticed not having a flash? I use my phone all the time for pics and these worries me a bit. Thanks for the help and opinions

    You can not change the SMS away from threaded format. It was requested forever and RIM finally delivered.

    As far as the flash goes its obviously missed in very dark situations. But the software behind the camera and the white balance allows it to take some decent pics in sunlight all the way to low light.

    I had a 9700 bold and like the SMS style it had, I bought a curve 8520 today, the SMS style is different and not threaded like the 9700, is there a way to get this feature on my curve? (would I have to upgrade to OS 5.0?)

    Yep, find the latest OS5 for the 8520 gsm, then install it to the pc, delete the vendor.xml, then install it on the phone.

    i can read 2 lines of the text. 2 lines are blocked by "return callback number xxx xxx-xxxx
    then the reply line on the bottom. only 1/4 of the screen is used to read the text

    any way to eliminate the callback number?

    after looking at it it also has the senders picture at the top of the screen if i have one saved in the phonebook. It would be nice if there was an option to shut that off for text so it didnt take up part of the screen

    this is really weird. I have received texts with 2 different formats. when i get them from certain people, it has their pic that i have stored in my addy book, the a text area,then a black area that says callback number:xxxxxxxxx. the callback number takes up som much space there is only 2 lines of text message to read. when i recieve texts from other people, the callback number doesnt appear on the botom. all the people are in my address book though. trying to figure out why it shows for some people, yet not for others...

    so far the only thing i can connect is that all the people that have sprint network shows a callback number blocking an additional 2 lines of the text chat. other carriers seem to not show the callback number

    a large amount of people wanted threaded
    No one was stepping up and saying "No"
    We now have it
    Now everyone who dislikes it comes out of the wood work
    And the world keeps on spinning

    threaded sms is alot easier just like chatting in instant messanger, takes a little getting used to but i like it coming from 8330 to a storm. i can understand on the smaller screens how it would be kind of annoying only seeing 2 lines of the text at a time but then again i have a big screen and dont have that problem

    Can anyone help me figure out what you mean about threaded sms and chat? Are you talking about a way to get the texts all in one blanket message, sort of like BBM allows? Like it'll say "me: blah blah" and then on next line "john: blah blah"? What I want most is to have all of my texts in one line only in my inbox like BBM. Like I can open that one text and see the whole conversation instead of them all separate and filed? Is that what everyone is talking about? Sorry, I'm confused!
