    To say the least BBM5 sucks. Absolutely sucks. It's too messy, disorganized, not user intuitive. When receiving photos from BBM contacts, it forces me to save the photo as opposed to just viewing it. So now I have to clutter my memory card/Bold with meaningless photos. Also, the whole 5.0 OS sucks too. The fact that I can't SMS like I used to by using quick shortcuts (the way I've been using Blackberrys for years) absolutely blows my mind. Sure 5.0 isn't official yet so I'll reserve further judgment, but still something as simple as SMS shouldn't be messed up like it is. Absolutely dissapointing. Also I can't delete all prior SMSs. I have to delete one by one. Everything in 5.0 seems to be confusing. From the SMS and BBM notification icon looking almost identical, to the little ******** arrows next to e-mails. How about just old-fashioned BOLD and regular-case headings for NEW and UNREAD messages--y'know--like you've always been doing, RIM?

    Sorry to hear you having problems, but the pic thing is only because people are choosing to send the file option, instead of the send pic, as far as I've been able to view pics without having to save them.

    i have the opposite opinion. i love both the new BBM and the 5.0 OS. i actually find the new BBM much more user friendly and i like the eye candy. i also prefer the threaded SMS over how it used to be. i can send and delete messages much quicker than before.

    Tha battery drain is killing me, I noticed it right away and then had MeterBerry verify that it was indeed the new BBM 5.0 causing the battery leak...

    It 100% definitley does, RIM needs to fix this in a jiffy. I can put up with a mild leak, but this is pretty bad...

    sorry but you're complaining about a company based on your experienced with a beta, leaked OS. if you don't like it then go back to what you like and quit acting like a schoolgirl about it, nobody is forcing you to use anything new.

    my battery on my bold will go three days with the new bbm 5, using it frequently, i would strongly suggest that you do not install overtop of another version of bbm, this causes problems.

    Excuse me? I'm running an official OS and the official BBM 5.0 release. Don't assume with me...

    most complaints about the new bbm are solidly user error, and people being unable to relax for a minute because it looks a little different. i've seen a few dozen people uninstall it instantly and post on this forum that they didn't like the new bubbles, totally unwilling and unaware to notice that you can make it look EXACTLY like the old bbm. at this point, most of this has to be ignored, because theres a myriad of these threads now, and its mostly all user error.

    The biggest complaint I have heard is with the inability to receive pics. This isn't user error, this is a bug.

    Anyone else getting random reboots? I've had 1 each day for the last 3 days. Nothing major, just haven't had one in a while.

    receiving pics is due to media card encryption being on.turn it off and it will go through fine.

    the rest of these complaints are ridiculous. msn u have to save to receive the pic why is it not a problem all of a sudden. yes the new version of msn has changed it but for the last 15 years or however long msn has existed u have had to save pics to receive. so why are people whining all of a sudden.

    u can delete the pic after. if its such a problem dont take pics

    i am using the tour and stock o.s. i am having the same issue with photos thru bbm 5. i cant just view the photo, unless someone with old bbm send me a photo then i can just view it. all bbm5 contacts i need to DL to view, and it takes FOREVER to recieve the file. i looked into the encryption thing, and mine is set at none. any help would be appreciated, thank you!

    once i turned off media card encryption it was fine for me. i now have o.s. 5.0 on my phone so i dont remember how the options are on 4.7.

    play around with the encryptions on that screen see if any will get it to work
