S60 Threaded SMS ... finally

It's a beta and you can download it here.

Supported devices are : Nokia N73. (Works but not fully tested with Nokia E50, E60, E61, E61i, E62, E70, N71, N75, N77, N80, N91, N92, N93, N93i.)Nokia N95 and 6290. Works but not fully tested with Nokia 5700 XpressMusic, Nokia 6110 Navigator, 6120 classic, 6121 classic, E90 Communicator, N76, N81, N81 8GB, N95 8GB.

Shows Nokia are listening to its S60 customers but not why it has taken ** so ** long to get this basic functionality given the number of complaints of it being missing as a feature on S60...

Next step is to get it out of beta and integrated into the S60 platform by default (not an add-on application).

Access to this functionality is either via going into the application (a bit longwinded unless you set it up in active idle or as a shortcut) or the more likely route of going into the Contacts (address Book) application where there is a new tab called "Conversation". Your conversations are grouped by people and then you can go into the conversation thread for the detailed view.

You can also remain in the context of the thread which is nice, to continue conversing via text. That's what the little pencil and dialogue box is there for.
