    Ok, so here is the deal, I have a couple of contacts on my bbm, which often change their
    Bbm "names", but on my contact list i keep just seeing their "surnames"
    Anyone has any idea why this happens, or how can i change the option (if there is one) to only see "names" no surnames??
    Thanks a lot in advance, this issue is driving me crazy?!?

    I've done that, but still not getting their names as they write them,
    I could just write any name i want, but not getting the info they are putting down?
    Highlighting only gives me the option to write whatever i want in any contact, but not to get their name as they write them!
    This is new, has never happened in the past, the contacts im having trouble with are new additions...
    Any suggestions? I've even looked on the adressbook options, still no changes
    HELP!! Lol

    On 4.6 OS if you rename a contact yourself, and would like them to appear as
    they have themselves again, then when you go to rename contact the option
    of "Set Original Name" will appear. You don't have to delete and re-add them
    for that anymore.

    The trick is this:

    1. You add someone to BBM...
    2. Change their name to what YOU want...
    3. Now that you've done that, even if they change their name it will NEVER update on your device...

    But, if you don't go in and change their name after adding/accepting them, and they change their name, it will automatically update on your BBM list...
