    Ok, yaaaay, it' finally 'officially' here......

    So, now IT'S time to vent. We've had a few days to play around with it, wat are some of the things about BBM5.0 that make you go hmmmm!

    Here's my cons-

    *YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD/SAVE A PICTURE BEFORE YOU CAN VIEW IT
    *THE EMOTICONS GOT UGLY
    *STATUS OPTIONS SEEM TO BE LIMIED TO 'AVAILABLE' & 'BUSY'

    If you select Personalize Status you can make it say whatever you wish.

    I don't like the color scheme. I thought the leak looked better.

    1) Doesn't work with Quick Launch
    2) Emoticons got downgraded and look uglier, I would have liked them just as they work.

    Um, that it doesn't let me accept their stupid license and that I spent 2 hours yesterday doing all this only to downgrade back to where I started.

    I dont have bbm in my quicklaunch, so i didn't know about that not working.

    hopefully there's an update coming from them [QL] soon.

    Berrybuzz sent me an update re BBM 5.0

    I use quick launch all the time and love it, but for BBM, I just normally hit the letter "N" one key press and i'm there, as opposed to two key presses with QL

    I hate how if you have someone on your BBM list and they send you an sms in 5.0, that it shows up in BBM and the custom ringtone that I have set for them doesn't go off. It goes off with the default messenger tone

    HATE the emoticons. The old ones were WAY cuter. and the pic transfer sucks. BBM 4.x was INSTANT. This accept and download is a giant step backwards.

    Yeah I use QL all the time too, just not for BBM. My BBM icon is on my home page with the QL icon anyway.

    I had a conversation today with my daughter who was on a shopping trip and sending me pics asking my opinion....it took forever to get all the pics she was sending me, THEN i had to go into media and delete all the pics afterwards...

    I wish the borders weren't so big in the chat window. I would like to have that screen real estate back to fit more messages on-screen.

    Love that you can use SMS within BBM but....the following needs to be fixed:

    1) SMS contacts in BBM are not sorted by most recent activity.
    2) When a new text comes in, it is difficult to distinguish who it was sent from.
    3) I should be able to use BBM by default for SMS. I don't want to have to add each contact individually.

    I don't really send pics often, but I can see how d'loading them first would be a pain. Hopefully an update will be sent out soon that fixes these issues, or maybe it will be part of the official OS 5.0

    I agree with the integration of the texts. It'd be fine if you could still have separate tones for your contacts, but using the default BBM tone for texts of people that are on my BBM contact list sucks.

    PM me in the morning and I will send you the link. I am on the other of my 5 computers and can't find it right now. I will send you the link tomorrow. I can't find it on the computer I am on right now.

    When I downloaded it from App World I noticed a huge memory leak, I uninstalled and installed from a different OTA link and memory hasn't been dropping as much but the leaked version was way better on memory IMO

    I think the smilies looked better on the old one. Also I hate how I cannot tell if a contact is OFFLINE. And the file/media/pic transfer sucks.

    Also anyone noticed that its pretty slow?

    Poor new layout on the main contacts screen. Probably looks great on a portrait shaped screen but on my 8900 I can see a lot LESS now than on the old messenger. Reasons:

    (a) every contact takes up far too much space - why is there no option to NOT show a picture by my contacts? I'm a grown man and I can read and am perfectly capable of identifying my contacts by their name without having a picture of them as well.

    (b) there's a line wated with "invite contact". How often am I going to use that? The ONLY things on the main screen should be those that are used all the time. I will invite new contacts maybe once per month so it'll be fine as an option under the menu key.

    I've not yet had anyone try and send me a file but am not looking forward to the new way of accepting files.....I'll reserve judgement on that until it happens.

    Groups and chat rooms and all may be great but they seem to me to be more business orientated - can't see very many uses for personal use. Great if BB want to stick to their traditional business use market but BB are going to lose even more ground against iPhone and Android in the personal marketplace.

    Overall - an update to something that, in my mind, didn't need any update at all. Their Facebook and MSN apps could have done with the effort instead.

    I am deff downgrading to the beta leak right now! I hate sending and accepting pictures ... most of the time they never finish transferring and sometimes when they do, if im lucky, they don't open!! All i get to see is a stupid icon of a pic

    Other than that there are many many small bugs like not being able to type in a chat window unless u end the chat and start a new one... etc

    I really hope RIM pushes an update because everybody I know and on this site seems to be complaining about the same things.
