    I have the latest BBM (5.0.0.57) and a friend of mine has an older version (4. something). This friend cannot see my correct status (for eg. even if I set it to busy she sees me as available) nor my display pic. Is this the case for everyone who communicates with contacts of older versions?

    yes the different versions don't play nice with each other. Why wouldn't your friend want the newer messenger?

    i would think the status would be visable...but the pics certainly can not be seen from versions older than 5.0

    I would think that RIM would want users to update to the latest version of BBM... it's less buggy and less of a resource hog.

    Agreed I think RIM wants everyone to use the latest version of BBM that their phone supports at the least,better if that is the very latest one .

    ...but of course that's up to the "users" themselves ,lol

    I upgraded earlier this week and I thought 5.0 was a memory drain. My bold 9000 is usually very stable, but once I upgraded and added a few groups, by lunchtime quickpull was asking me if I wanted to reboot due to low memory. I never had that before, and didn't install anything at the same time as bbm5, so I am looking at that as the culprit.

    I'm sure there is an answer here on cb; I was planning on poking around later this weekend. BTW, the 5.0 version I downloaded was from BB App world; should I be looking for a better version elsewhere?

    Amm John this isn't the thread for version 5 complaints....Anyway, apart from msg delays at times, I don't have any probs with it. My friend just tends to not like it but that's her business...

    A thousand pardons...how dare I?

    Wasn't complaining really, just giving personal opinion on the comment that version 5 was less of a resource hog.
