Link a contact with a contact in the Contacts application

When you link a contact with a contact in the Contacts application, you might be able to perform additional tasks using BlackBerry® Messenger. For example, during a chat, you might be able to quickly call or send an email message to the contact from the menu.

If contacts do not have display pictures in BlackBerry Messenger, their contact pictures from the Contacts application appear in BlackBerry Messenger instead.

  1. On the Home screen, in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
  2. On the contact list screen, in a contact category, highlight a contact.
  3. Press the Menu key.
  4. Click Link with BlackBerry Contact.
    • If the contact is in the Contacts application, if necessary, click Select Contact. Click a contact.
    • If the contact is not in the Contacts application, click New Contact. Type the contact information. Press the Menu key. Click Save.
  • To view the contact's information that appears in the Contacts application, press the Menu key. Click View BlackBerry Contact.
  • To unlink the contact from the Contacts application, press the Menu key. Click Remove Link with BlackBerry Contact.
