    Blackberry Curve2 has sms messages in a bbm-like format. Is there any way to do this with a tour?

    The 5.0 version of the device software includes threaded, chat-style SMS functionality.

    Yes.

    There are numerous threads about it in this forum section with instructions and links. Just look in the thread titles for "5.0".

    Just to point out that the OS 5.0 available now for the Tour are not officially released by VZW, though they are for MTS and some other carriers. So for VZW Tours, I guess these may be considered "leaked OSes".

    Grab either the 5.0.0.230 or .419 (official by MTS). They are by far the most stable.

    If you have vzw and tether though be aware that it won't work yet. At least vz access manager won't recognize my Tour now that I'm running OS 5.0.0.419.

    If you decide to try the unofficial 5.0, you wont want to go back to 4.7. The upgrade is worth it though.

    if you don't want to do the 5.0 os leak ( like I can't because of Mac and VZW and a little hesitant to do so since mac is older) Empower Threaded SMS works really well on my phone.
