    Just DL'ed BBM 5.0 (pretty sweet upgrade) and noticed that I no longer can see when one of my contacts is "typing" back to me.

    I running good old official 4.7.148 so my guess would be that maybe when running OS 5.0 the "typing" status will return. So I am chalking this up to a OS quirk.

    Anyone else experience the same thing? Any thoughts if my guess is right on the money?

    Also, I hear that until OS 5.0 is running on the device the full potential/features of BBM 5.0 are not going to be available. Is this true and what are the missing features as I run 4.7.148?

    Thanks in advance all.

    Kind of like buying a new car and being told you don't get a steering wheel its on backorder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I see it some, it all depends on the length of the message the other person is writing. I am running 4.7.something. It is the recent one for the Tour and Verizon.

    if you hit the bb key (to the right of the phone) and do invite a contact, the choice i get is e-mail, PIN or name for the top one with the envelope, do you only get e-mail there?

    I have exactly the same problem with mine, I'm running BBM 5.0.0.33 on a Bold with Vodafone (UK). Just installed it and I cannot see when the other person is 'typing a message'. It's not a major problem but I want to get it fixed - you guys seem to be missing the point... would you want to download a new application and not have it working properly??! It doesn't matter how small the problem is.

    I just broadcast a message to all of my 43 contacts and only one person has come back saying they have the same issue, everyone else's is working fine.

    I have tried a hard reset and it does not change anything...
