    When I noticed that I had the option to integrate SMS-only contacts into BBM, I decided to try it with a single contact. I quickly discovered how spoiled I am by BBM.

    I am used to batting out a few lines and hitting enter at will in BBM. Unfortunately, chatting with an SMS contact in this fashion would cost me easily 4-5 times as many messages as it should. I always try to use as much of the 160 characters as possible (for extended conversations). Being in BBM, I tend to forget, batting off 1-liners, 1-characters, etc... If I did this on a regular basis with a few different SMS contacts, I would burn through my entire 200/month SMS messages in a single day! (Yes, I really send that few SMS texts each month. My wife and son are on BBM, as well as many of my close friends.)

    So, just curious: How many of you have SMS contacts in your BBM?

    I do not have SMS integrated with BBM, I just keep them seperate. Old school I guess...

    I keep them separate. I only use SMS for non-BB folks. All my chats with BB owners are BBM.

    I integrate only those SMS contacts that are my "preferred" contacts. That way I get the blue BBM notifier for them.

    I combine both but I only use BBM to communicate with my wife.

    I only wish that BerryPopUp would display BBM's.

    Good Luck
