    This evening BlackBerry Messenger 5.0.0.33 was released to App World and works great. Have it installed and all is good. Be sure and do a backup before installing it just in case.

    Can OS 5.0 be that far behind ???

    I noticed they took out the "send my location" feature, which caused a serious crash on the leaked release. Lazy programmers!

    is "send my location" the same as "send location"? if so, it's in the 5.0.0.33 version.

    I tried installing last night over beta version and it messed my phone up. The icon was missing after install reboot. So I rebooted again and got reinstall software error 552. So it did sumthing to my os. Had to erase and install everthing.

    gO TO OPTION> advanced options>applications.
    Scroll down to BlackBerry Messanger and look to the right. It will have 5.0.0.33 if the upgrade went correct. The send my location feature should no longer be in BBM. This caused to many issues especially with the 8350i. There is also now posted on the main blog page a list of the features and some info about them. The SMS feature will not work with the 8350i. If you were running the leaked version of 5.0 BBM there is not much difference to the new version 5.0.0.33. All my contacts from the leaked version carried over to the official version without issue.

    rohdawg- are you using version 5.0.0.33? I have yet been able to see any where on 5.0.0.33 that will send location.

    open and run BBmaps or GoogleMaps......

    I see the option to send via messanger from BBmaps but in the leaked version you could send location from BBM. Although it would kill your BB if you tired. Now the option to send from BBM is no longer there that I can find.

    I installed it on my 8350i right after it was announced.

    I upgraded the leaked version I had on it and got into some weird issues. Right after installation I had a white screen with a 500 something error. I rebooted the BB and when it came up it got stuck on the yellow Nextel screen. I rebooted one more time into safe mode (held down the escape key on boot up) and it came up without a problem and BBM was running. I sent and received a few messages and rebooted again in normal mode and everything worked without a problem.

    I do have the Send Location option when in a conversation and I tried it last night and it worked without killing my berry.

    The only thing I can't do is view my current location. If I click on the View button it doesn't do anything. This is probably because I don't have Blackberry Maps installed.

    I like the new Group feature and wish my co-workers had BB instead of their iPhones.

    rohdawg- got it figured out now. I was not seeing the send location due to not being in a convo. Now the big question has anyone other than havanahjoe tried the send location feature?

    ANYONE FROM BOOST HAS TRIED THE NEW BBM5.0?

    bbm will never work on boost. bbm uses rims servers, boost has no support for the 8350 so boost will not have access to the rim servers..... never, until boost supports a blackberry.
