    Well you aren't completely alone. I too used to dislike the threaded sms but after while I've become numb to it. I definitely would like more options for sms.

    I also hate the new SMS window. I wish I could go back so SMS messages look like emails. I thought that was the strength of Blackberry, i.e. how it handles messaging in its different forms.

    You are probably in the minority on disliking the threaded SMS. BB users have been begging for threaded SMS on BB for YEARS, and that is why RIM finally put it in version 5.0.

    From time to time, you have to wonder...... What was I saying?

    Basically.

    They're awesome if you give them a chance and use them properly. I love being able to look back at information all in one place rather than have to search through SMS/Email boxes.

    i personally love the threaded SMS, maybe they should list it as an SMS option : Threaded/Classic.

    That may be so, but I would love an option I liked the way that SMS was integrated and handled just like email. Also, in the old version you could still see up to 10 SMS in a thread. The composition window was larger.

    The main thing I don't like is that all the SMS messages you exchange with a person appears as ONE item in the message list. Would you want to see all your email with a person appear as ONE item in the message list? That doesn't make sense to me. I've already accidentally deleted a ton of unrelated messages by deleting one item.

    Also, is there a shortcut to compose a new SMS? I used to just select in the message list header, click Menu, "Compose SMS" and it worked like composing an email. Now you get a separate window that keeps prompting for a receipient, requiring you to click an OK button. Why all the complication?

    I just got my 9700 yesterday and i actually like the threaded sms feature. coming from my 9000 it is way easier to keep up.

    On my Bold with 5.0.0.411 installed there is an option to include SMS and MMS messages in the inbox. Try opening your inbox, pressing the menu button and selecting options-->inbox settings and there should be a check box to include SMS and MMS messages in the main message list. I haven't used it that way because I like the threaded SMS but I would think it would revert back to the "classic" view.

    Everyone has their own preference, but I must admit that before I got my DROID, I tried 5.0 on my 8330 and the threaded SMS was awesome! I loved it! Too bad the rest of my 8330 hated 5.0, had to dump it and go back to 4.5 and I did miss the threaded feature.

    I didn't like it either, but am also numb to it now. I do like it when someone sends an SMS that's to long...it theads both texts together to look like one message.
