Name Text Chat

Over the weekend I discovered a fun little customization you can use for text message conversations on your BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry Q10

BlackBerry 10 allows you to change the name for a text message conversation to whatever you want - so instead of seeing the contact name as it appears in your contact list, you can make it something unique.

For my wife, rather than showing her full name I can simply change the name of the chat to be anything I want.

You can easily do this for any SMS chats you have started, keep reading to find out how.

Name Text Chat

  • When viewing the SMS conversation, press the overflow icon (3 dots)
  • Choose Name Chat
  • Enter any name you'd like for the chat

The custom name you chose will now appear for the chat instead of the contact name or number. Awesome!
