How to Organize Your BBM Contacts Into Categories

BlackBerry Messenger is probably the feature you use the most on your BlackBerry smartphone. If you have a lot of contacts, it can be hard to find the person you’re trying to write to. Even though you can use the search feature to find them, some change their nicknames or add special characters that can make it quite hard (and a little annoying) to look up a contact on BBM. This is why I always keep them organized into separate categories. Here’s how you can keep your BBM contacts organized to make it a lot easier for you to find someone in your contacts list:

1. To create a contact category, simply open BBM, press the Menu button and select “New Contact Category“.

2. Here, you’ll be asked to enter the category name. Once you type it in, press “Ok“.

3. You’ll be prompted with a list of all your contacts. Here you can select which contacts you want to move to the new category by selecting the checkbox beside the contact’s name.

4. Once you’re done, press “Ok” and you’ll see the new category added to your contacts list.

To add contacts to an already created category, select the contact you want to add, press the Menu button and select “Move Contact“.

You can create as many categories as you’d like, for example: friends, family, work, etc. Hope this guide helps you out, and be sure to leave a comment if you have any questions, suggestions or just feel like saying something.
