CALL SOMEONE YOU'RE CHATTING WITH

You don't have the option to call a contact from your messages. Remember how handy this feature used to be on Android? It's one of the most simplest of features and is a crime to not have it. On Android, if you were chatting with someone through SMS and then wanted to call that person all you would have to do is long-press the chat snippet and you'd be given lots and lots of options, one of them being CALL. I don't see that option on the Z10.

Re: CALL SOMEONE YOU'RE CHATTING WITH

This feature is available in BBM. If the contact with whom you're chatting is available for a phone call, a green phone icon will appear in the top right of the chat. You simply press that and before you know it you're talking on the phone. This feature is available across all platforms and not just to your BlackBerry friends.

This is available.

 

While your chatting via SMS, long press the top of the screen where your chat partner's name is... tap the phone icon on the right hand side which pops up.

That also works.

 

But you should be using BBM over SMS; it's so much richer in features!

Well, he did ask about SMS functions.

Doesn't matter, the user has been banned anyway for abusing the forum in other ways.
