    since I installed the messenger 5.0 I found my tour battery drains a bit faster than before, and memory has slight leakage of 3 or 4 MB as well.

    anyone else experience this?

    I am running a Tour Hybrid (.230/.238) and noticed a slight battery drain decrease. BUT, I also getting a stronger signal with .230 radio, and something in .238 files seems to have strenghtened it even further. I run a lot of apps on the background so memory leaks are expected (also have an Aerize memory cleaner app that seems to help there).

    Yeah, I've also been monitoring MeterBerry stats and I've noted increased memory leakage and battery drain. Not Cool! Thinking about downgrading BBM pending an upgrade.

    Hopefully RIM has a fix for this, or I'll have to go back to the old BBM...

    There will be further BBM builds that hopefully optimize these issues.

    A little update ....

    After trying out most 5.x builds for my Bold, together with the latest BBM 5, I have decided to completely REMOVE BBM and use Live Messenger for my contacts instead.

    I get less than 1 day of use if BBM is installed, but I get aprx. 3 days of same use when I have BBM removed.

    So - If u have any battery issues, removing BBM might just save your day.....

    I noticed the change with memory and battery power when I had my bb curve 8330 and it was terrible when I updated to the offical that it made me downgrade to the leaked version. I like the new features but its sad it comes at the expense of less uptime & mem leaks. I just got this tour so I will see how bbm is running on this.
