BlackBerry Messenger Hotlinks!

Have any of you out there ever found yourself copy and pasting URLs or phone numbers directly from BlackBerry Messenger and either inputting them in your web browser or adding them to your contacts? I know I have for sure and often wondered why they were not converted to hyperlinks and creating menu items for phone functionality.

Well, long time friend of CrackBerry, Stinsonddog has the answer for us on how exactly to get that fixed in 4.6/4.7 OS, so that those items do indeed show the way they should as elsewhere in the BlackBerry OS. This is something that seemingly was overlooked by RIM and hopefully they fully fix it for all us Bold and Storm owners.

The fix is a rather easy one, as shown in the image above. Just simply go inside your BlackBerry messenger menu, press on your menu key and go to options, once inside options scroll down to "Group Messages In Conversation" and set it to "Yes", press your menu key and choose "Save" and you are good to go.

Hotlinks In BlackBerry Messenger!

As you can see above, the website URLs are now underlined and clickable to open your browser, as well numbers are now highlighted so the option for example to "Call  1877BLKBERR" is also showing in your menu options.

Now while this is a great fix for having the hotlinks and numbers show up in BlackBerry messenger the way they should be, now that I know this option exists I would like to see it applied in the OS so that the messages do not have to be grouped in order for this functionality to be there. Personally I despise having my messages grouped like that and find it much more cluttered like in appearance, although I'm sure some of you much prefer this way, it is not my way of the walk. RIM developers could easily correct this, how it has gone this far uncorrected I'll never know and I think the pics convey how I feel about it well lol!

Big ups to Stinsonddog for bringing this to everyones attention, be sure to check out his site for some other hot BlackBerry tips!
