Native threaded SMS is just around the corner for BlackBerry users and now you can get an advanced preview if you’re using a BlackBerry Curve 8900 or Bold 9000.

The latest OS leak, OS 5.0.0.190, delivers native threaded SMS for BlackBerry. While you won’t get the tabbed browsing as seen in previous OS 5 leaks, the native SMS client is reason enough to download. But remember, as with all OS leaks, proceed with caution! Always back up your device first because you may lose data.

Download OS 5.0.0.190 for your BlackBerry Bold 9000.

Threaded SMS has always been the feature that BlackBerry users covet. Threaded conversations make the texting experience that much more enjoyable because you can keep track of multiple conversations and it’s easier to start up a conversation where you left off.

SwooshSMS is a 3rd party app that takes BlackBerry text messaging to the next level. You now have the ability to have to have your own text folder where all your texts are threaded. SwooshSMS also integrates your contact’s photo so you can see who you are talking to. The pic can be taken from the contact folder as well as from Facebook.

One of the downsides to this app is that it lacks the ability to end an entire conversation. You have to delete a message one at a time; a little annoying to be honest. Other than that, if you’re looking for a neat threaded SMS client, try it out.

Purchase SwooshSMS for $9.99 from the BlackBerry Cool Store.
