    I am sure this has been asked before but I could not find it on a previous post.

    Is Blackberry Messenger 5.0 available for the Tour? If so, does anyone have the OTA link?

    Some new features in 5.0 include:

    - picture avatars connected to your BBM contacts, so when you facebook app adds your friends pictures to your contact list it's copied over to bbm

    -messages are contained in bubbles, similar to iPhone text messages

    - QR Code invitations. If your not familiar with this concept its basically a square with a dotted pattern inside that uniquely ids your phone. For someone to add you to their contacts all they need to do is take a picture of your pattern and boom youre in their list

    - notifications for when you friends change their picture or status

    - if while in a conversation another contact sends you a message it will pop up at the bottom of your screen, but not exit your current chat, this is convenient for those people who have multiple conversations at once

    Funny thing you should ask - I upgraded to the leaked BBM 5.0.0.11 (I think it was), obviously backing up first, and lost my contacts. Then, I tried to restore my contacts from my backup and only found a few at a time had been restored. It took several restores of the same backup to get all my contacts back - for whatever reason. It was very strange and I still don't have a solid answer as to why it happened. And, no real solution to it either.

    Ultimately, I was able to get all my contacts back... Hope this helps.
