    I just got an email from blackberry to download the BBM 5.0.1 beta

    I will report back when I have something to report about it

    make sure your browser is set as Blackberry in order for the emailed link to work properly

    You can get it through your BB browser. That's how I installed it.

    For some reason all the contact pics I have linked to fb and my address book have all disappeared. I tried both a remote restore from email and a reboot. After reboot the pics were there for a second and then they disappeared again. I used to solve pic probs by unlinking and then relinking them to the contact. I was going to do it again but now it says I'll lose all pin info. I'm on an 8330m. Anybody got any ideas. I hate the no pic thing.

    Went ahead & tried unlinking & relinking and it did no good. Also tried removing and readding the fb connection and got nothing.

    Does anyone know how to change your PIN in your profile in Beta Zone. I had to get a replacement Blackberry the other day after I had registered and now my key code was generated with my old PIN. Therefore, I can not finish the install. I have email Beta Zone but I have not gotten a response yet.

    email them...


    and for anyone that is going to ask... IT CANNOT BE LEAKED! as far as i know... you need a special code direct from RIM and is coded to your PIN... so in other words, based off that... IT CANNOT BE LEAKED!

    Noticed some improvements and some added features. Also a little bit of lag with my transition theme when exiting the options menu.

    Going back to 5.0.0.66...I'm not happy with the font increase and still dealing with lag when scrolling despite battery pulls.

    Lol. Yeah, just "rechecked" it against my original BOLD with BBM 5.0.0.33. A few items have been moved around. Aside from pic quality, nothing new.

    Was this a sign up program? I know invites are slowly rolling out.

    Just wondering if I have to sign up, or be patient.

    I am a beta zone member, with full profile filled out.

    Okay, I never saw an option for this, maybe I just wasn't fast enough signing up for beta zone.

    Thanks

    For those complaining about the font, can you not just adjust the font in the options menu under the screen/keyboard options?

    You can, but it then changes the font for the whole device which I do not want. I wish there was an option on bbm itself.

    In the options try changing the contact list style from 2 lines to 1 line. Then the pictures should show up. It worked for me. You can then change back to two lines and they will stay.
