    Has anyone else had any issue opening Bridge BBM on playbook or am i missing something??? its starts to open and then closes almost immediately.

    Edit: for some reason if i open it twice it stays open...will try reboot the PB and try again.

    EDIT FIXED: Turns out there was a BBM update that i failed to see, I updated and BBM opens on playbook VIA bridge like how its supposed to.

    Did they remove the ability to enlarge profile pictures? I can't figure out how to do it now.

    I'm having the same problem. After I updated to 2.0 it worked flawlessly but now it closes immediately when I try to open BBM. I did a few restarts and it's still closing any recommendations?

    "Two devices ... one PB, one Phone ... don't reboot only one"
    This could be a generic suggestion prior to test anything harder.

    I've had the problem since going to OS 2 as well. 9 times out of 10 BBM crashes when you launch it. The odd time it does work I've also noticed that it won't allow enlarging of the profile pic like xeju mentioned. Have restarted both devices multiple times since Tuesday yet the problem persists.

    I have no problems with BBM opening on the PB, my issue is I will receive a message and view it on my PB but the sender never gets an 'R' on their end. Case in point, last night I was BBMing my gf from my PB and she was complaining cause none of her messages showed up as being read. I went my phone (9650 Bold) and opened BBM, they all populated with 'R's. Anyone else having this problem?

    Same problem here .. BBM keeps crashing when I try and open it on the PB .. And before when BBM via Bridge was open you could see who was sending you a message on the notification bar now its only says to open bbm to view message.

    I also upgraded bbm on my phone to the latest version

    Bbm works on my pb , but one thing I noticed is I get the notification on the pb only once. When new messages comes in I don't get any notifications, sound or the red corner notification.
