    BBM 5.0 just stopped working and it'a bit odd the way it doesn't work.

    I can view options stuff when I press the menu button while my name is hihglighted, but whn I highlight any other name or contact or etc. it just doesn't give a crap to what I press

    And in addition it doesn't open up my chats neither in BBm or in messeges tab. (Which it crashes when I scroll down to the threads of BBM messeges) Java.lang error something!

    Anyone else had any problem like this?

    Do you have QuickLaunch installed and a shortcut set for BBM in it? That seems to be causing big problems with BBM for some people.

    I did it this way;

    Go to options->advanced options->applications.. Find BBM, hit the menu key and select delete. It will require a restart.

    Like people mentioned above, check to see if you have any shortcuts from uncompatiable applications anywhere and be sure to remove them first!

    Hope it helps

    No. BBM 5.0 is not a beta. It is official. It is here on RIM's site. BlackBerry - BlackBerry Messenger
