    BBM 5 not showing option to add contact by phone number??

    I'm trying to set up BBM 5 so I can use it for SMS.

    After installing I'm only getting the option to add contact by PIN or email. It is not showing an option to add contact by phone number like shown in the picture and you tube video below.

    I am currently using 4.7 OS.
    Do I have to install the 5.0 OS for this to work?
    Can some of you take a look and see if this is also the case for you?

    This is really frustrating =(

    I don’t believe you can use BBM for SMS


    BBM is for PIN's that are assigned to each BB not made for SMS

    Unless this is something that will be integrated with 5.0 SO

    I think it is carrier based. I cannot find this option on my device as well.

    It has to be carrier based then because the option is not there for me only PIN and Email.

    I read somewhere and I can't find it but this is one of the functions in the new BBM when it handles threaded SMS. This should be available on all BBM when RIM rolls it out.

    I asked the poster of the youtube video and his reply was :

    I was wondering if you could help me here.

    I kinda figured it had something to do with the 5.0 OS
