Kik Messaging - Don't Recognize a Contact??

Okay, so I downloaded Kik to try out and don't actually use it. But I occasionally get a notification saying I have a message. When I check the message, it's from Kik saying they found one of my contacts is a Kik user. (I assume this happens when someone in my phone's contacts downloads the app.)

Well, I do recall that it allows you to enter your own user name. So, if I get this message, and I don't recognize the name, do you suppose it is someone I have in my contacts list's phone number, but they've made a fictitious name? And if so, how in the world do I find out who they are without directly asking? Curiosity is killin me. I want to know who's bein shady. LOL

I think it would work like WeChat/Line, where despite having a user name, you can view their profile and pic to see who it is? And you can also see their phone number

But how do you see the phone number? I'm not sure you can in Kik.

This person doesn't have a profile pic yet. And if it is someone being shady, I doubt they'll put a real one up. I even searched facebook and google for this name and come up blank.

***Edit. Nevermind. Just found this:

Well, damn. This is still bugging the hell out of me. I can go to my contacts list and tell it to show on Whatsapp people. I wish Kik allowed that. I'm not finding any way to connect a user in Kik to your contacts list other than the fact that Kik says they're in there. :/
