I recently updated to iOS5, One of my friends messaged me through iMessage, the sender name was his @gmail.com address.
The message appeared in a seperated thread to the existing SMS messages I had with him previously.
I added his mail address to the contact I already had with him, however I cannot get the iMessage thread to merge with the SMS thread.
I have tried deleting the iMessage thread with no result.
If I open the SMS thread, it will only send SMS. If I open the iMessage thread, it will only send iMessages.
Is there a solution to let me merge these two conversations?
Phone is an iPhone 4G 16GB.
