    Texts replies as BBM message...

    Advertisement



    I go to Compose a SMS message, send it, but it shows as BBM instead of SMS and when they reply, it is a BBM. I asked hubby if he gets a bbm or a text, he said text. And when I go to BBM, it has a mobile phone icon next to his name instead of the chat bubble. Is that a new thing if between BBs? Or is it a glitch in the OS?

    Mine does this as well, but I notice it only does this when the individual I am texting is also a BBM contact. Otherwise, those who are not BBM contacts text messages stay in the SMS folder.

    Yes, I am sure I in SMS...I even went real slow to make sure I was clicking right...lol. Hubby says it comes to him as a text but when he replies I get the BBM message icon and by his name it has a mobile icon.

    And starting yesterday, it says I have a BBM message and I can see the chat when I open BBM, but when I open the chat, nothing. It just started yesterday and I have been running .680 for a few days now so I don't think that is the issue.

    I have only tested this with Hubby since he is the one I text/bbm the most.

    Ok, just tested it...

    I sent a SMS to another bbm contact...it showed up under SMS and MMS with a yellowish chat bubble by her name. I sent a SMS to hubby and it showed up under SMS and MMS with a mobile phone icon by his name. And he replied and it buzzed but no icon showing new message, just the red star on bbm...I saw his reply when I opened BBM but when I opened the chat, nothing. I haven't gotten a reply from my friend yet.

    Yes, it notifies you under BBM even if u send the message from the SMS/MMS folder and it notifies you with the sound or profile setting.
    Try sms someone who is not a BBM contact & it should stay in your SMS/MMS folder.

    My friend who is a BBM contact replied to my SMS and it came back SMS. But when looking in the SMS/MMS folder I noticed that it highlighted a line...nothing big, just a line, so I clicked it, it was the BBM/SMS between hubby and me. Just odd...nothing major I guess, just odd.

    The replying as bbm message doesn't bother me as much as I can't always see them. I see the alert, I see the chat in bbm, but when I open the chat, nothing is there...sometimes it is just my responses, sometimes nothing.

    I am going to double check my bbm version...can't remember if I updated it when I upgraded my OS.

    Well, I had version 5.0 so I upgraded to 5.0.0.57. The SMS still came back as a BBM but at least I could see it this time...lets see how long that lasts.

    Thanks for all the replies and suggestions!

    mine does this too! what annoys me is that the conversation doesnt show up in both bbm active conversations AND sms list. though if you scroll slowly while in the sms list, you'll notice a line and if you click it, the thread shows.
    is this a glitch? how to solve? i checked to show bbm in message list already, but still the same

    You may have SMS integrated with BlackBerry Messenger. SMS text messages only appear in BlackBerry Messenger if the functionality is enabled by one of the following methods:
    Enabling the SMS text message integration functionality if a contact has already been added to BlackBerry Messenger or enabling the SMS text message integration functionality by inviting the contact to BlackBerry Messenger by SMS text message.

    TO disable the SMS Integration functionality...
    1. Open BlackBerry Messenger.
    2. Scroll to and click the contact that you wish to disable this feature for.
    3. Press the Menu key and click Remove Contacts Link.

    is there no other way than this? coz this method will remove the PIN entry in the phonebook

    edit: i remove the links, then proceeded to input the PINs manually in the phonebook. it worked for a while, but when i reset my bb, all links returned.

    updating bbm to 5.0.1.38 seems to do the trick. sms in the sms list and bbm in the bbm. just the way i like it.
