    When I save a contact it shows the Name(external).

    I cannot eliminate the (external). Does anyone have any idea how to change this? Editing the name does not work.

    That is showing you the nature of the contact - it's not part of the name itself.

    External to your organisation.

    With BBMe Consumer, your "organisation" is just you.

    Anyone not using BBME will be labeled as an "external" contact.

    Is there any other chats connected to BBMe?
    There was BBM and BBMe, but now BBM was shut down, and only BBMe left?

    I'm still comfortable with my answer above. All of my contacts are external.

    Only the Android version of BBM was shutdown, the BB10 version is still up and running. If they aren't using BBME, they're on BB10/OS.

    Didn't you ask?

    I'm saying every single BBMe contact I have says external - whether full BBMe, consumer BBMe, or BB10 BBM.

    Maybe it's because you have the 'real' enterprise version? On 'consumer' enterprise only the ones using BB10 show as external.

    does anyone know if BBMe works on BB10? I think only the full BBMe does as I'm having issues getting the consumer version of BBMe to work.

    You're right, only full blown accounts are compatible with BB10.
