Default Sms = Bbm?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a friend who also has a BlackBerry and I have him as a contact on my BBM.
Whenever he texts me (not BBM), I receive that message in BBM. Does anyone know how i can fix this?

i am running os 5.0

Thanks in advance!

It is not BBM. It is sms, just looks different (threaded). No way to change it

Yup, SMS handled differently when you are on 5.0. I like the new interface though -- doing away with open, reply, delete, when you can just "talk" (threaded).

On the new versions of BBM in OS 5.0, if you have a BBM contact linked to a BlackBerry Contact, you will receive SMS in BBM from that Contact.

Interesting. I never had that happen. I guess I am incorrect then. I'm not sure how to fix it then

Just go into BBM and un-link the contact, but they won't show up in your contacts then.

It actually creates quite some confusion for me. I have limited sms that comes with my plan every month. Anything over the limit is chargable. Sometimes, with the threaded view, I mistake the sms to be BBM and chat away, clocking gazillion sms in the process...

I keep the format different for each so that I can tell them apart. BBM gets bubbles and sms gets stripes.
