Upgrade to BBM 7.0 w/ voice.....not so smooth on BB OS6!
So I've recently upgraded to BBM v7.0 and although the extra icons are nice (haven't voice chatted yet), the application in itself is extremely choppy now. Scrolling up and down through my contacts is just painful and it's almost as if the lag is being caused by the application waiting on some outside source of additional information. Anyone else experiencing this and if so, have you found a solution?
I'm going to leave it for now as I can still BBM, just wait and see if it will correct itself. However, I may have to revert back to the last version of BBM if this continues or RIM can't provide a fix. I have already emailed them both my blackberry hardware information and a description of the issue being encountered. I know this an old phone/OS and I should have upgraded to an OS7 BB long time ago but I'm up to date on everything in regards to OS6 software/apps. Like everyone else in the blackberry family, I'm waiting for BB10!

I was just coming to start a thread about this because mine is doing the same. BBM 6 was really fast and smooth, but now it is very choppy and annoying. I have a 9800 and it runs very well, better than my moms 9810 in fact, but this upgrade is frustrating so far. Let me know if anyone finds anything out.

I installed the new BB7 and I use a Bold 9930 running OS 126.96.36.1995 and a few times I have restarted my phone it made BBM lag... After awhile it would go back to normal, and I also restarted my phone a couple times and it worked smoothly again. I'm not sure what it is, maybe it's just a communication problem with BBID since they tied it in with BBM now..
Update : I updated my os on my 9800 reinstalled everything and at first it seemed to help with the lag but it was short lived. Obviously it's better when i'm as home and connected to wifi, but it's stillborn smooth and even worse when i'm off the wifi connection. I hope this not what I have to look forward too until bb10."Think highly of yourself, because the world will take you at your own estimate."
