Hey all,

A friend of mine just got a new mobile number - save the number to the contact and all good. But when I get text messages from them, they appear as a new conversation in Messages, as opposed to the conversation carrying over.

Is there a way around this?

Cheers

Sadly, no. A conversation is tied to the address it came from/sent to.
This is going to become more of an issue in iOS 5 with iMessage; messages sent to +61xxxxxx and me@email.com appear as separate conversations... instead of one. Gah!

If you have the number as +04XX.... and theirs is set to +614XX... on their phone, would that make any difference?
