Contact Name Screwed up

I updated the OS today with the new release from BB. This afternoon I was BBM'ing with someone named Campbell and all of a sudden the contact name was changed to "C.qampbell.r V." and it was changed to taht in my CONTACTS folder as well. I tried to change the name in CONTACTS and I saved it but it immediately reverted to the screwed up name. I would say that the BB folks have made a boo boo in their OS ! Anyone else ?

Re: Contact Name Screwed up

The other user changed their BBM contact name.

And your BBM contacts are also listed in your Contacts folder.

Re: Contact Name Screwed up

The other user is my daughter and she did not change her contact name. I mentioned that it did change both the BBM contact name and her name in my CONTACTS app and repeated attempts to edit and save the proper name don't work.

The name change happened from one BBM message send to another in mid conversation.

Re: Contact Name Screwed up

Ok, can't explain that.

 

If she didn't change it, I don't know who did.

 

Sorry.

Re: Contact Name Screwed up

Check on the phones if the Blackberry ID is working properly. Check to see that the contact name itself is proper.

 

More than this you could try calling Blackberry support.

Re: Contact Name Screwed up

Ended up deleting her contact info and BBM id and then set her up again. No other way to get it fixed/edited.
