Please Login to Remove!

I really like how the blackberry messenger is formated and I want my normal texts to be formated the same. I dont really like the format of the text messages now.. like the txt lists and when you open them. can i download something to change that?

The text messages for 5.0 is threaded like Blackberry Messenger if you are running OS 5.0. Unfortunately, the highest official OS for your phone is 4.5 so you dont have the feature which does exist on the newer phones.

RIM has promised OS 5.0 for some older model BlackBerrys will be released next week. No guarantees that the 8310 will be included, but if it is it may give you what you want. If not, your only choice will be to upgrade to a newer device.

RIM has promised. The issue is whether 5.0 if ever released will negatively impact the phone in other ways

Pretty sure the only 8300 model OS 5 will be released for will be the 8330. The other ones lack the memory to run the OS.

Good point. As the OS becomes more advanced, it becomes something of a resource hog. The 8310's 64 MB of internal memory won't cut it with OS 5. The 96 MB on the 8330 is probably just barely enough.
