Are you following our directions in the yellow sticky at the top of the 8900 section? Did you install the OS on the PC?

So dissapointed..the reason i love Blackberry so much is for it's great keyboard and sms stile.but i think the threaded sms is jut awfull.i used os 4.5 until now and i love that old sms layout.i searched the entire web trying to find a way to bring back the old layout into os 5 but no luck.il there any way?if not,i will stick with os 4.6..

No, there's no way. You'll have to downgrade.
