    So I've been using 5.0 for some time now, and noticed that even when recieving a sms from a bbm contact, it shows up in bbm. I havent seen any talk about this yet, kinda bugs me. Any info/fixes?

    Check this out...when you receive an sms from a bbm contact, open up your sms folder, scroll your trackwheel to the first line UNDER your first text, click the line and be amazed.

    hopefully you read my post before deciding to be smart, all i was asking was why does a SMS show up in my bbm chat. Not "How can i read a text message." but thanks for the input

    Fortunately, It only happens for linked contacts in bbm so the quick solution is to go to your bbm, select a contact and choose "Remove Contacts Link". From now any sms from this contact will not show up in your bbm.

    Hope this helps.

    Personally, I like it. It keeps me organized & also reminds me that they're on BBM so I can skip the 160 character BS and just IM them instead. Hah.

    yea, its a normal function of people you have linked between BBM and your contacts. no way to stop it other than what was explained above.

    doesnt really bother me, but i wouldnt mind an SMS to just be in the SMS folder instead of a BBM contacts SMS in both places.

    Its not really a quirk or issue, it was done intentionally for OS 5.0.

    Yeah its not that it bothers me, just one of those kinda weird things. Why would they have intentionally done this though? Wouldnt it make sense to have bbm conversations in bbm only, and the saem for the sms like it was before? That seems more organized to me.
