    Hey Everyone,

    I installed the 5.0 OS on my Blackberry Tour and tried to download BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 off of the App World. It says it downloaded and shows up in the applications list but is no where to be found on the menu for me to open. What should I do?

    Hey brianjacobson, from what i've read and experience, that BBM 5.0 does not work with OS 5.0

    Non-Compatiable until the final 5.0 is released. Hope this helps a little.

    Good, I guess I will go ahead and upgrade to os 5.0 then. The only thing holding me back was I that I read that BBM 5.O was incompatible with the os 5.0.

    BBM 5.0 didn't worked for me when I upgraded last week, downloaded it from app world, installed it just fine, but the icon was missing, can't find it anymore. Also, MSN wasn't working, so I decided to go back, 4.7.1.57 is working great, i'll upgrade when 5.0 will be official.

    LOL you were supposed to do a battery pull after installing bbm from app world...that is why the icon was not showing. the phone must be restarted to complete installation...i hope i help everyone in the future, do not waste your time reverting to 4.7 or installing over and over again!! just battery pull

    To the above, Thanks a lot, I had my tour 1 week ago, I had the storm before and didn't read the 9630's as much, I didn't know that. I didn't have any issues installing BBM 5.0 on my Storm running 5.0.
    I'll do my update tonight for sure
