    I wish the texting on my tour was like BBM. My old cheap phone even had the option for a chat view. Going back n forth between messages stinks. Does anyone know of any apps or upgrades to help me out?

    Upgrade to a leaked 5.0 OS and you get threaded messages.

    I guess I should of asked in more detail.. I am new to BB and have no idea how to do something like that. Is it a download from my phone or to my computer? Would it be under forums? Will it mess up any of the programs i currently have by upgrading?

    Ah, good to know.

    Well, there are pros and cons, first and foremost, the OS 5.0 is a leaked OS, not an official release so there's going to be quirks about it, most of them are nominal at best. Yes, it's a download you'll download to your computer and install from there.

    If you're not completely comfortable with using a leak/hybrid OS for your phone, I'd recommend doing some more reading on it before you make the change completely. Yes you can always revert back to the official release if you don't like the 5.0, it's just time consuming and i'm not sure what your schedule is like.

    Just some things to think about.

    If you change your mind, just ask. I myself just recently upgraded to the leaked 5.0 and would gladly like to help you (as would others). There are some bugs I've noticed and texting is just like BBM.

    Man, it's killing me. What's a BM? Big Mamma? Boring Mate? Bloviating Mother-in-law? I guess I'm not up to date on all the hip acronyms.

    3jam Threaded SMS and Empower SMS Viewer both will do threaded SMS but niether program is free. I've used Empower but not 3jam. I know Empower SMS Viewer has a limited trial that you can try.

    I think even with OS 5.0 you will love the Empower Threaded SMS simply because of its beautiful UI. Also, it has a free Trial, so I will definitely recommend you to try it out once.
