Sorry, man. Mine is running off the profile settings I had for the native SMS. Can't say I've had the occasion to try the settings myself.

I'm in if not too late
I too would like to try this if it isn't too late. I have a Tour 9630 v220.127.116.11 on Sprint and am tired of waiting on a 5.0 upgrade and have been waiting for the threaded text messaging.

If you would like another Guinnea Pig
I would be more than willing to test the beta also.

Have you tried upgrading your BBM? I believe you can use threaded SMS in BBM 5 with the Tour

How are things coming along with this app? Anywhere close to being released?

Threaded SMS Released!
Long wait over!
Empower Threaded SMS, a true threaded SMS app for BlackBerry is now available. Now instead of just a simple list, you can view your SMS neatly as "conversations" grouped by individual Contacts. And, just like the iPhone SMS, you can view each conversation in IM style and reply like in SMS chat.
Please point your BlackBerry Browsers to www.getempower.com/ota/ or to computer browser to www.getempower.com for more details and trial install.
Thanks much to the beta team who helped test it out and improved it with their feedback.. You guys rock! Its always a pleasure working with you... And to sweeten it for everyone else - take a trial and when you are ready to purchase just type the code tsms50offps for a cool 50% OFF! Please note, this code expires in 3 days, so please make sure you use it before it expires.

Any more chances to test it out?

Bought it IMMEDIATELY!!
Thanks so much for the awesome app. This makes my day!!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

Well, it's the same version I already have that doesn't work. So I'd say the alerts haven't been fixed either.

I purchased this app today and have a couple of questions. Does the app somehow need to be running in the background to receive SMS messages or does it "intercept" messages and display them in the app? Should the app launch when selecting compose SMS text from the email menu or do I always have to launch the app and select compose from there?

Al, you need to enable your firewall (Options>Security Options>Firewall) and then block the native SMS within the firewall. When I had the app installed, I hid the native SMS app's icon and put the Empower one in it's place.
I believe the only way to launch this app is with its own icon.
Ani, I also use TetherBerry which caused an issue with me using this Threaded SMS app. I haven't found a way to use TetherBerry with the firewall enabled, which it needs to be in order to use your app.
