    I was going to buy Beyond 160 for SMS . . . But if 5.O threads SMS messages I'd rather wait till it's released. Anyone know or should I just buy 160 now?

    threaded sms still has the limit for 160 characters in each message. it still cuts you off when you get to 160. beoynd160 basically splits the messages up and numbers them for you so you dont have to do it. i bought it and use it all the time, and im running 5.0 on my tour with threaded sms. its all about your personal needs and preferences.

    its really personal preference. 5.0 does have threaded text and its definitely way better. I personally don't care for beyond160 because once you run out, just hit enter (send) and keep going. But on the other hand, people don't like to stop half way through to the message saying out of characters

    I wondered if Beyone160 would work with 5.0. I would assume it takes it out of being threaded in BBM, though.

    There u go...someone else that proves that beyond160 doesn't work with 5.0...I've yet to hear how Mystery got it to work...sorry if I sound like such a bother...but its hard for me to believe this guy got his Beyond160 app to work with 5.0, when more than all have said it doesnt work, even Canon Software said it. And if he found a fix...I want to know about it.

    Beyond 160 works, it just doesn't have OS integration. Yes, that pretty much defeats the purpose of it. But, with threaded sms, it is much easier to hit send, then keep typing then hitting menu, scrolling, then typing. So 5.0 threaded> Beyond160

    yea I can confirm that beyond160 is not "integrated" into 5.0, you have to open it up separately...PITA

    This is ok, except the message can be easily received out of order and not numbered.

    I use Textender personally. Almost the same functionality of Beyond160, and its cheaper usually. I got it on sale for .99

    Yes but the functionality isn't the same as Beyond160. Textender lets you send more than one txt by sending it as an email then breaking it up before it reaches the recipient into sms messages so it shows in your outbox as an email outside of the conversation thread.

    To me that makes the app not worth it for me. Plus the Textender shortcut shows up on every menu, not just under messages and when you go to it, it doesn't import what you've already typed.

    I know I sound picky but I like what I like.

    To the original poster, I just now downloaded 5.0 and have been using it heavily for the past half hour. I really like the way the next are. They are just like BlackBerry messenger except 160 characters. Also the 5.0 seems faster and I'm using less battery life.

    But the internet is going way slower and I got 1XEV. It's taking forever to download a small file. Battery pull might fix it. About to find out.

    Beyond160 does not work with 5.0, it does not send even if you work just in it. Textender does work but you must work in it. Cannon software is supposidly working on a fix for Beyond160.

    Any other app besides beyond 160 to send a text message to multiple contacts at the same time?
    And I mean hundreds of contacts.

    Beyond160 is your best bet for sending a text message to hundreds of contacts. The latest version (v1.0.6) is now compatible with the newer releases of OS 5. You can download it here:
