    Anyone else feel like seasons pass while waiting to transfer a file or picture on the new BLACKBERRY MESSENGER?

    yeah i have had several time out...mostly when on a spotty connection with the RIM servers. Best thing is the send as the "small" option instead of the huge file and it seems to work. I think the servers are loaded for one thing right now.

    Same issues here. Gave up after about 5 minutes. Just had them send them via email attachments. I have also had problems with delivery times and other server realated issues.

    I've had the same problem on my curve 8330...it's never taken longer than 5 minutes tops. I hate that you have to save the picture to view it...what was rim thinking?

    Wow. You guys don't need a better bbm, you both need a head doctor...lol. J/k.
    Seriously, on my old BlackBerry messenger I could send files pretty quick.
    With this one, even small files are a pain.

    Same Problem here. Using the Storm. File transfers never go or they stop half way. Very Frustrating!

    Glad I'm not the only one. I have had nothing but problems sending files since the upgrade. Even it's own "send voice note" feature doesn't wory. Ugh. Hopefully they will fix it soon. Such a pain.

    The previous beta wasn't like that.. The latest bbm is another example of 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

    I'm having the same problems. Time-outs, files not getting through, insanely slow transfer speeds.

    What's the deal RIM? How could you mess this up so bad?

    I can live with having to "accept" a transfer since not everyone has unlimi data. But having to save the file is stupid. Having it expire if you don't accept within a certain time frame is ridiculous. And having it hang up half way through a tansfer is painfully frustrating.

    They have singled handedly ruined the best app they have.

    I'm soo frustrated with the BBM cuz yes I too can't send pics....it sucks..I have tried everything & the only thing that seems to work is a batt pull then send pics/files if not them try the small pic option like above mentioned.

    Its just like the Slacker/Camera mix up...if u are on Slacker u can't take a pic..even AFTER u shut down Slacker..it just disables it till u restart for what ever reason ...

    I have used a workaround successfully...add the person you want to send pics to a BBM group..then sending pics is instantaneous just like good ol 4.7....

    Yes that works but making groups for everyone u chat with is a lil toooo much IMO

    Yes, that is a bit tedious, but it's a decent alternative for the time being until they fix this, which I REALLY hope they are planning on doing! thanks Kazmi.

    Hey a workaround is exactly that - a workaround. I'm shocked that BBM would have been released with MMS broken. I mean, now that even the iPhone can send MMS messages RIM thinks that it would be chic to go back to NOT being able to??
