I downloaded the new OS on my Tour, the only problem I don't care for is a few of my Contacts and Friends on BMM, their SMS are coming as a BBM message. Have anyone else experienced this?

I figured it out, I had these two contacts linked to BBM! Problem solved, it was consuming me because it was quite strange!

I am having a similar problem, but all of my SMS have switched over to BB IM, not just the ones associated with BBM.  Quite annoying.  Any ideas to change this?

That is called "Threaded Messaging" and is a new feature to the 5.0 OS.  The only way to get away from it is to downgrade back to 4.7.  This is the reason my wife did not upgrade her Tour yesterday.  I showed her mine with the new OS and she did not want it.

So basically what everyone is saying is we just have to tough it out with duplicate text/BBM's with this new upgrade?  That kinda stinks, I love everything else about the OS upgrade but this since I have to delete in 2 areas now.

Not sure why you are experiencing this, I was the original person that posted this. I'm not receiving duplicated SMS nor BBM's. I do know that if I have to reboot my phone for any reason, I often get a few text messages as if they are new, but I have read them previously. It appears to be glitches in the 5.0 upgrade, unfortunately!
