    Bbm 5.0 works fine on the new os (5.0.0.328). You just have to redownload it...

    I re-downloaded BBM but lost all of my saved contact lists except one which was months ago so I lost a bunch of contacts. Guess I'm sending out a lot of invites tmrw.

    I Finally got it working. I had to re-download BBM 5, then had to do a restore. That brought back all my contacts.
    Now that everything is working, it doesn't look bad. Give it a few days and see what happens.

    I made sure that I had backed up. I'm not a complete *****. I just don't understand why RIM can't make things very simple to do. I don't like being up past midnight to fix a phone
    AMEN! I have now download BBM and App World multiple times on both my husbands and my storms. His will not keep App world after a battery pull and mine will not keep BBM...Also have issues with his archiving myspace and quickpull every time!

    What is up with SMS messages being notified in BBM? I like my SMS messages to be separate from BBM messages, not combined LOL. This only happens for contacts that are in BBM and my regular contact list..

    FIXED!

    Uninstall BBM-twice-make sure it doesnt show up as archived

    Update contacts in address book to NOT include their Pins.

    Reinstall BBM-restore BBM contacts(or just wait for them to message you)-recheck that their Pins are not in regular address book

    Your SMS messages from common contacts will show up as SMS, and BBM messages will show up as BBM messages. You also will no longer see SMS messages from common contacts show up in BBM's chat list
