    Just went to try and help you out and noticed that option is also not on my 9900, lol but I am running 7.1. I checked quickly but I might be wrong cause I remembered doing that on my 9780

    Actually figured it out, I was wrong, the way to do it is to go into < Contacts< Highlight Name< Menu should then have these options

    View
    Edit
    Delete
    Send Contact Card
    Add to Home Screen

    There you go

    This is what you get when you highlight a chat, what you need to do is go into the Contacts "category" or wherever the contact is located. Then the menu will show "Show on Homescreen"

    It has always been this way...

    Highlight a contact (on your contact list, not in the chat), then hit the BB (Menu button) and scroll to 'Show on Home Screen'. It should ask you for a Save Location and give you the option of marking as favorite.

    There isn't an option to bring you straight to BBM chat, at least not on any current OS versions.

    It does on mine (9930/OS7/BBM6.1). Whether there's an open chat or not with contact. It opens BBM then goes straight to chat mode, you can just start typing.

    This also works with text messaging contacts you've added to BBM...

    Did you do anything else? When I click on the person's icon on the home screen it just brings me to their contact info.

    ^^ I don't know about yours but mine from the homescreen it take me directly to the chat with the person.
    Try updating your bbm if you don't have the latest version

    You can, open the bbm chat in messages and when you want to exit to homescreen press the red end call button instead of the back button. When you open Messages folder again it will go straight into the bbm chat.

    If you add a bbm contact to homescreen it also sends you straight to chat when you click on them.

    These are BBM contacts that are in BBM, not the regular contacts.

    This was explained above...

    If you click on someone from your BBM contact list, and you have an open chat with them, then clicking on the icon(wherever it is; Home, Favorites, Media, etc...) will open that chat screen. If you do not have a chat screen open with your contact, then hitting the icon will open a blank conversation window and then you can just type.
