    Nope. Standard BB text messaging (non-threaded).

    .42 is more responsive than .40. The trackball is also working a lot better. I haven't found any significant changes other than those, which is huge. We still have the same text messaging, same options, same everything else. Obviously this is a performance/tweak upgrade and not the change towards 5.0 that most are looking for. However, it is well worth the upgrade for the "snapiness" alone.

    i have one of the newer builds.. got my tour mid august. i havent had any screen freezing issues or even a single trackball issue(i have seen those issues first hand though...)

    im wondering if .42 is even meant for the newer tour builds that arent full of issues?

    It's meant for every tour. There's not a whole lot wrong with 4.7.1.40 so I'm not suprised that there isn't much difference.

    If your happy with .40 stay where you are if your bored try .42 and if you want something really new try 5.0.0.191 but alot of applications and themes wont work with 5.0 just yet

    Pretty much says it all. Like cold says, .191 is great but there are compatibility issues with existing software.
