    Same exact thing happened to me. Thanks to my reading [here on CB] about a reset crashing the device, I elected to just go into the apps on the device and delete BBM 5.0. I then installed it again without incident. The only problem now is that my image is not being displayed to my contacts and when I try to 'enlarge' it just gives me a blank white screen. Other than that, it appears that all is working fine.

    the problem i had was that yesterday i downloaded the official bbm 5.0 from bb app world str8 from my tour. first it took foreverrrrr to install and it froze...i had to do a battery pull then it was fine and working great. then this morning i go to it and its gone...completely. i went back into bb app world and it said uninstalled. crazy right? so i redownloaded it again and its working great. the only thing was that i had to request everyone again for my contacts versus when i initally downloaded it all my contacts were there. but thats my fault as i could have done a contacts backup from start. on the plus side i didnt have contacts like that...not everyone owns a berry

    When you install bbm 5.0 ther is no icon for bbm bc there is a disclaimer that you have to agree to in order to use bbm. What I did was hold down the bb button to get to the running programs menu and the icon was in there. I couldn't even go into message folder and hit compose instant message, when I did it only gave me google talk option. So after reboot, click and hold bb button until menu and go to bbm icon. Once u agree to terms all is well.
