    It seems that it is because your BBM contacts are linked to your main contacts (address book), and it is treating their normal SMS as a chat to your BBM.

    You can try the following steps:

    1. Open your BlackBerry Messenger
    2. Highlight a contact
    3. Press Menu key
    4. Look for the option "Link to BlackBerry Contact"
    5. Unlinked the contact
    6. Repeat the same for all of your contacts.

    Hope it helps...!

    ***OT***

    Unfortunately, I haven't been there yet. This article might help, though I don't know since when it was updated:
    Al Lulu Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    BTW, so many mega projects are being done & planned here in Abu Dhabi, especially now that Dubai is currently down. Still can't lose the "friendly" competition about what's the best city in UAE, I think. But one thing's for sure: don't let the tall buildings in Dubai tell you otherwise. Abu Dhabi is the richest! There are talks even that Abu Dhabi will buy some companies that the government of Dubai owns because they can't pay their loans anymore.

    ***End of OT****

    Ah yeah, I know a lot about AD (my Uncle see's the Crown Prince on a regular visits) I visit a good 3 times a year, my family live there, AD has much much more money than Dubai and oil! I can't wait for the Louvre etc to open just hope they don't spoil the natural feel of AD, I much prefer it to Dubai, although that said Al-Ain is also very old school Arabia!

    but yeah back to topic.

    you tips worked!

    All sorted!

    Cheers

    I tried the "unlink" feature but it still didn't work. What i ended up having to do was create a 2nd contact in my address book with just the name and pin 3 of my friends with bbm so that their pin was not associated with their original contact. With that AND the unlink it finally worked for me....
