    Hi-
    I am a new user to Windows Phone 7, I really LOVE the experience so far. How do I get my THREADS to work correctly? I have a contact whose number is linked to his facebook. I have texted him, and I have facebook chatted him (on computer). Shouldn't those both show up in my thread for him??

    I setup the facebook chat, but is it only for Chat? IE do messages sent back and forth also add to the thread?

    The WP7 online guide says that it will automatically put these into my threads. All I see when I click his messaging is the text messages.

    Thanks

    Have you checked your facebook chat is on ?

    Settings / Applications / Messaging (Turn on facebook chat)

    And welcome along to WPC chapmattman :)

    You could always mess around in www.windowsphone.com settings when you login there.

    Go to your contacts and then services, there's facebook settings in there too.

    Good luck chapmattman on and make sure you are available / online for chat too.

    (When in threads click the little messenger like icon at the bottom and make yourself available)

    Not sure what you mean about the arrows chapmattman, when i get text or facebook chat they just appear in the normal thread with either text or facebook above them.

    Oh i see what you mean now, the switch icon.

    You've definately merged / linked your contacts with your facebook contacts ?

    Not sure what else to suggest.

    Yea make sure his Facebook profile is linked to his calling profile. Also... Are you connected to Facebook chat? Make sure you can see online people in the Messaging hub in the Online section.

    OK, I changed the status on MY side to online, and it is working. I guess it doesn't retroactively put in the threads, like Facebook does...

    No it doesn't work like that chapmattman, only chat on your phone will show on the phone.

    Glad it's working for you now. :)

    Whenever I use FB chat on the PC it shows up on my phone as well. It actually gets annoying sometimes because the alert sound on the phone keeps playing over and over while I'm chatting on the PC.

    I have 3 options in my messaging settings, Facebook Chat On/Off, SMS Delivery confirmation On/Off, and Group Text On/Off

    Have you got facebook set up on the phone? No idea why the facebook chat on/off should be missing jfa1.

    Oh good jfa1, remember you can filter your facebook contacts, go into people hub and there's a filter my contact list and only show posts from people visible in your contact list settings etc.

    That might tidy things up a wee bit for you. :)

    Pretty sure you can't after a few minutes since it has been posted, you'll need a mod or admin to do it for you.

    How do you delete a thread you started..like if someone answered your question or you stumbled upon the answer yourself, and no longer want it to be a topic?

    Easiest way probably would be to click the report post icon in the opening response and stating that you would like the thread deleted for whatever reason(s), users can't delete their own threads on their own.
