    I installed bbm5 and love it except for the send location feature does not work. I am on Verizon. I read somewhere it works on gsm and not cdma. If I can send my location via bb maps, why would it not work on messenger 5??

    what OS are you guys running? I was never able to send my location on 4.7 with BBM 5.0

    I recently upgraded to 5.0.0.230 and although I still cant send my location, it is still making an effort to. I dont think I have enough signal where I am to send it.

    I am running 4 7. Mine makes the effort also. It just don't make sense that bbmaps can send the location and bbm can't
    I found this on bb site. Re: BBM 5 killed location sending for Tour(all CDM... - BlackBerry Support Community Forums

    J Sanders seems to be missing something. The fact is that this is not working for VERIZON customers. I can confirm the same behavior. BBM5 does NOT send location. Google maps, BB Maps, aMaze GPS... all work fine.

    So is this a RIM issue or a Verizon issue?

    So your saying blackberry messenger has a gps built into it? I don't think it does. I think it works off the phones gps system. So I feel its not a gps issue. From in the house if I am using bbmaps, i can send my location. Google maps works fine from inside also.

    gps settings are correct. BBMaps sends location no problem Google maps works fine. BBM5 wont send location.

    Uh, no. If you read the posts again you'll notice that ALL other GPS apps work fine. BBM5 on Verizon with a 4.7 OS, send location does NOT work. Inside or outside.
