I think the issue is that RIM's priority for SMS is low simply because the market demand for comprehensive SMS management is extremely limited.
Personally I hate receiving SMS mesgs with the availability of IM and email. Get your wife a BB and then she can PIN IM you.
Believe me, I've offered to get my wife and son both a BlackBerry. My son would love it but it's not nearly time yet for him to upgrade. My wife, she's doing good to operate a simple Palm OS based Centro.
As for IM, I've never ran it at length on a mobile phone. How does it affect battery life? Any noticeable hit at all?
