You can opt to use MMS, which actually will embed previous messages.
Excellent instructive answer. That makes sense to me, and I like how you differentiate between the thread part and embedded. That might help me explain to others who've never experienced Palm SMS messaging.
As for the MMS option, I appreciate that suggestion and I think it's great. However, I'm on Sprint and they haven't got the MMS service on the BlackBerry Curve. I'll just continue to hold out hope that RIM sees enough interest that they work out an option for us.
Anyway, thanks much!
