    Hi i upgraded to bbm 5 last week, i seem to have problem sending messages out today. some of the messages i send have like a sound wave icon to the left of it and it doesn't go through for like 15 mins. some of them just go through right away and will have the check mark with the letter d or r beside it.

    My friend and I are having the same problem today - I upgraded two weeks ago and this is the first time I'm having any problem.

    Bbm 5 is useless with messages. Downgrade back to the old one.

    I've had bbm 5 for the same amount of time as you guys (2 weeks) and I noticed the lag with sending messages yesterday around mid-day. It's still doing it today as well. I would HATE to downgrade. The old BBM is PATHETIC compared to 5.0! I'm going to stick with it and hope RIM is just "continuing to upgrade their servers".

    There is definitely a delay again today... but not nearly as bad as during the outage a couple weeks ago. For those of you saying its BBM 5 and you should immediately downgrade, your wrong. I would argue this is a RIM/Server issue again and has nothing to do with BBM 5. Up until today BBM 5 (in fact all BBM versions) were running perfectly since the outage. I suggest just waiting it out.

    It's funny. I've read countless threads regarding bbm5 not sending messages. Everyone wanted to jump ship when they first saw that it was messed up. Then when everyone found out it was a server issue all you saw were threads asking where they can find a working ota link for bbm5. I say if you like it, stick with it. RIM will fix the servers. If you don't like it, then downgrade.

    hardly. i downgraded today and my messages are being sent perfectly. I put up with delayed messages with bbm5 for a week and gave up. the original bbm maybe a lot more simple, but it's damn reliable.

    I'm having problems sending and getting messages. Just figured it was a problem with RIM and not really bbm 5.

    I've noticed that my messages are going through a bit faster than earlier today. Received a picture from another bbm 5 user and it was a little slower than usual but not too bad. I feel the lag issue should clear up pretty soon.

    First of all, BBM5 has been awesome since the outage last week. I have hardly noticed any problems at all.

    Second, don't be so quick to assume that your downgrade to BBM 4.6 today did anything at all except make you feel better. The issue is spotty at best, and has gone from perfect to strange a few times today.

    I sent a few messages to someone and got the check mark but no D/R. Suddenly it started working fine again (though the D/R on those messages still hasn't shown up) and he confirmed that he received the messages that my BBM did not report delivered/read. At least he got the messages...not getting a delivery/read report is annoying but if you're using a beta and can't handle a few quirks, go back to AT&T .167/BBM 4.6 and stop complaining.

    Until I see 20+ heavy BBM 4.6 users saying they have not noticed a single thing with their BBM service today, I'm not gonna assume it's a BBM5 problem...and even if it is, oh well.

    It's not a BBM5 problem. It's an RIM leaking BBM5 problem. They leaked it on
    purpose for free beta-testing. BBM5 uses more bandwith and since so many
    people are using it it's slowing BBM down all together. It's an issue that I'm
    sure they'll fix soon.
