BBM not working after upgrading, then downgrading from OS 6
I know there are probably a million threads on BBM not delivering messages, but honestly I'm not Blackberry savvy at all, and I never understand the instructions that people are trying to give.
A few days ago I upgraded my BB to OS 6 using Desktop Manager. I then started having problems with BBM, as in my messages were only seldom delivering (D above checkmark) to my contacts. I got fed up with this, and the OS 6 interface as well, so I just downgraded back to OS 5.0 using Desktop Manager. I was hoping this would fix the problem, but it hasn't. How do I fix this, without having much knowledge of the functions and operations of the Blackberry? I tried a battery pull when I had it on OS 6, and I tried a battery pull once I realized the issue wasn't solved in OS 5, but it didn't help.
EDIT: After posting this, I did another reboot, then registered on the network, which both failed to fix the problem. I then figured out how to send my service books, which also failed to help me with delivering my BBMs. So I'm basically stuck at this point. Another issue I've been having after I downgraded to OS 5 again is that I can't make a phone call from the homescreen. If I start trying the numbers (e.g., I start typing with number 5) then screens from different applications start showing up instead of the enlarged numbers that would normally come up for making a call (e.g., number 5 brings up the Memos application screen). I can only make a call from the "Phone" application screen. Does anyone know if this is a problem which coincides with what's going on with my BBM?
