Messages > Menu > Options > General Options > SMS > Separate

If you are on OS version 5.0, then the option might be under Messages > Menu > Options > Inbox Settings. Uncheck the box for SMS.

That is an OS 5 upgrade. Seems users wanted it and RIM made it so. the only way to change is to revert to an older OS.

Open email or sms application from home screen.
Press menu key & select "Options" --> "Inbox Settings"
Tick both boxes. This will force all emails, sms & mms messages to be listed altogether in a single location.
