Before using a Treo, I couldn't care less about it, but after experiencing it, I wouldn't want to go back to anything else, the same way many wouldn't go back to any other phone after using the BB. Not trying to convince anyone that threaded sms is the way to go, just saying that there is a huge demand out there for it.

i would agree to that statement, if someone wrote the program to be combined with the SMS, like empower and BBSmart do for HTML... but for threaded SMS... that i think would please ALOT of people... if only i knew how to write apps for the BB, i would be able to make alot of people happy

Threaded SMS has been something asked about for a long time, and it was in fact made popular by other devices long before the iPhone, and most likely stems from things like AIM.

Throwing the iPhone in there for no reason besides just doing it, really leads me to believe it was yet another pot-shot at it.
That's your problem, not mine. My only frame of reference for threaded SMS is *my* iPhone. Get it? As in, my experience with USING threaded SMS is entirely tied to the iPhone. It's history, development, and all the supposed outcry for it, are what's irrelevant to my original point. Therefore, my bringing in the iPhone was quite relevant. Your reaction to *my* opinion about threaded SMS as a feature on *my* device, which happens to be an iPhone, was silly. It wasn't a shot at the iPhone, a comment about the iPhone vs. a Blackberry, a comment about Steve Jobs, a comment about Macs vs. PC's or whatever else your fevered imagination led you to believe.

Really, it's okay to just admit you were wrong and overreacted. God forbid anyone on an internet message board ever do something like that. We might accidentally wind up with more civil conversations or something.

BlackBerry does have threaded SMS. it just isn't called that nor is it as nice as the others, but it manually works.

options > SMS Text > number of previous items (up to 50).

this will show you the last 50 SMS messages "thread-like" between you and the other person.

True threaded SMS will show only a single SMS in your inbox, and when you click on it to open it you see the entire conversation laid out like an IM chat. Rather than create a separate message for each response it adds to the current conversation. After typing 10 responses to 10 incoming messages your inbox still shows the one message, not a pile of 20 individual ones. Nobody does SMS like the Palm Treo. Unfortunately, that's about all they do well.

You say only a few find it pointless thats just in this thread. Its been discussed here many times and there are just as many who say its not needed as there are those who say it is.

I really dont care if they make an app or not I have used the treo with it and I can take it or leave it. Its no skin of my back I was just giving my opinion like everyone else.

Yeah, but they aren't in that cute "comic book bubble" format. Wouldn't that make your life more complete and fulfilling?

When I look in the Messaging Inbox on my Treo I see 3 messages; one for a conversation with John, another one for a conversation with Alexis, and a third for my conversation with Anne. All together it's like 53 responses from me and a like amount from them. Click on any conversation and it opens up like an AOL IM chat session. Muy convenient. Some of these conversations span several hours. When I go back and forth from one conversation to another it gets really messy. Scrolling through to the last message from any one person would be a pain in the butt, especially with over 50 individual messages that would be in my Inbox without threaded SMS.

Read these boards long enough and you will understand. If BB doesn't have it then they must not need it. Don't let it drive you crazy because its like arguing with a wall.

I don't hate it, in fact I think the BB is a great device and would own one again if the device fit my needs at the time. Despite owning an iphone, I don't think its the greatest thing since sliced bread. It could take some ques from BB and I think BB could take some from the iphone. I was only stating that some feel if the BB doesn't have a particular feature, then it either isn't important or not needed and for that poster not to get worked up over it as that is the way message boards are. I'm sure some iphone zealots feel that way too, but that's not me.

A lot of people here also don't understand that while there are a lot of people who do not use SMS, there is an entire generation of people that are/have grown up with SMS, and those people are starting to look more towards Blackberries. SMS is a HUGE feature for a lot of people. look at a product like the T-Mobile Sidekick. That is pretty much a phone designed for SMS first, everything else second.

RIM would be very smart to drastically improve how Blackberries handle SMS, as a new generation of smartphone buyers are looking for the best SMS experience possible.

RIM claims the bold will have an updated SMS UI. I wonder if this means threaded sms.

I don't find it on my new BOLD which I think is a great device. I would say this is my biggest dissapointment of all which can of course be fixed by an OS upgrade. I hope they do it.
