    I believe everyone is well aware of the fact that
    you can rename a contact on BBM to a name your choosing.
    But, how do you make it so it returns to their default name?

    I'm sure this is a fairly simple process,
    I just can't seem to figure it out.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Open the contact in the phone book & then use the menu key & click on edit.

    That didn't work.
    There is no option for that.

    I renamed a contact on BBM.
    Now I want to make it so there default name shows.
    As in the name they chose.
    I no longer want the name I chose for them to be there.

    If you remember the name simply go back to BBM, choose the contact and select rename again

    Well you can see the name they chose for themselves if you go to "Contact Info".
    But if I do what you suggest AG, then I will have to always check and always rename them their most current name.

    Is there no way to just revert it back to the original way it is when you add the contact?
    So it always just displays their chosen name.

    EDIT: Woo, 500 posts!

    First things first;

    CONGRATS!!!! YOU GO GIRL

    Next, I think the only way you could do what you want is to write down the
    PIN, delete the contact and then re add them. Other than that, you will have
    to do it manually the way I suggested.

    I have one contact that I p iss off at least once a week and she deletes me,
    when she comes to her senses and re adds me her screen name is always
    the default, and then I change it to her actual name.

    Haha. You never fail to amuse me AG. Thank you.

    That's really interesting that there is no way to do this.
    It seems like something that would be very simple.

    Anyway, I can't delete the contact and then readd them.
    It's the guy I work for. So that wouldn't look very good.

    But thanks anyway AG.

    Im having the same issue here, i keep on getting the "surname" but not the "name" they actually write, this just happens with a couple of contacts, never saw the "surname" under contact options. Gonna try deleting and adding again
    If anyone has a suggestion of how not to get the "surname" would be great!
    It's kindda driving me crazy, my bf has a different name on his bbm to which i have, and i would like to get what he is writting as his name
    :-)
    HELP!!
