Link a contact with the Contacts app

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 contact list screen, in a contact category, highlight a contact.
  2. Press the Image                         of Menu key key > 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 > Save.
  • To view the contact's information that appears in the Contacts application, press the Image of Menu key key > View BlackBerry Contact Card.
  • To unlink the contact from the Contacts application, press the Image of                         Menu key key > Remove Link with BlackBerry Contact.
