    I like screen real-estate. Is there any way to turn off Avatars so that each user is displayed on a single-line? I am guessing not, since it is not obvious to find this option.

    It's very annoying because you never know if the messages actually go through anymore.

    What are the chances of finding an OTA link to the old version?
    I don't have a backup on this PC

    Receiving pictures (as listed above) seems to take forever with no preview. Let's hope that gets fixed!

    i am having the same problem with the sent notifications and read notifications, after talking with a buddy for a while and checking what was received and not received, we have confirmed that the messages are not making it accross the network, is this a problem that everyone is having?

    for those that are having this issue what OS and branding do you have?

    .247 and unbranded.

    I got the same problems as other ppl. But these are some of my findings of having 5.0 for a day.

    1. Avartar's wouldnt work. Me and a friend both took the plunge and couldn't see each other's pic.

    2. Single conversations could be moved to the home screen, but group converstions could not. They'll probably fix this...I hope.

    3. Location sharing didn't really work for me and my friend. It would send, but couldn't view the location.

    4. You can only "Set Alert" on Unavailable contacts. On 4.6, you can set an alert on a contact to notify when they read the msg. But on 5.0, that option doesn't show up unless they are unavailable. If you're just waiting for them to read it, there is no option to set an alert

    5. I found once I added an alert on an unavailable contact, it didn't notify me the contact was available again and the alert remained. And when I tried to use the "Clear Alert" option, that option didn't work.

    6. Proximity didn't work for me and my friend at all.

    7. Delayed msgs. They didn't get sent til couple minutes after. Only happened twice, but again, something that didn't happen on 4.6.

    These are just my findings. Everyone's experience is different, so maybe your 5.0 works a lot better than mine. I have reverted back to 4.6 and will probably wait til an Official 5.0 BBM arrives

    Why do we have to crop an image in BBM5 while sending one?

    I have been having the same issues with the D and R appearing.

    But I think I have found a remedy, its annoying, but has been working for me.

    Usually when sending a BBM, I hit enter then quickly press back, and use my side button to lock it.

    I've found, that if you actually wait a few seconds and watch your message go to D, which it should after a few seconds, then the phone has no problem displaying D and R when in a conversation.

    Give it a try and see what you find.

    well, i experienced several annoying problems that make me want to downgrade. The problems that I encountered are:

    1. The system somehow "re-send" old messages (multiple times).
    I.e.: I got three (same) messages from my wife. My friend got couple messages that had been sent by me an hour ago!!!

    2. My friend tried to messaged me, and the message delivered to some stranger. So far, I have two of my friends who have this very problem. Totally annoying!

    Having said that, can anyone tell me where I can get the previous version of BBM?

    As far as the cropping picture thingy, i found out that it only happens when you send a picture to someone with lower version of BBM (i.e. from 5.0 to 4.6)

    If you send the picture to someone who also has version 5.0, it won't ask you to crop. However, it will ask whether you want to write a description for the picture or not.

    Another thing about the 5.0 version : it doesn't compress the picture like it used to. So if you send a 400kb image, it will take quite some time.

    My bbm 5.0 is now not sending ANY messages at all. I'm not home so I can't get the old one back from my computer.

    The blackberry.com/messenger didn't work for me.

    Any link to a working one or any ideas on how to get that one to work would be
    VERY appreciated.
