    Its now happened about 5 times since installing .99 on monday.... But If I'm BBM it will just freeze... Right in the middle of the convo..

    I was thinking of doing a full wipe and re-install of .99.

    Has anybody else experience this?

    I heard some people saying this, someone said it only happens if you ahve BBM open when you lock it... if you hit the end call button and go back to the home screen it shouldn't freeze... Let me know if that helps or not.

    i have never yet had a problem with my storm in BBM. and i have gone from .65, .75, .83, .85, .90, .99. I HAVE had a quite a few other little problems with certain OS builds but never a BBM problem to date.

    I have .99 and I don't have the problem of it freezing when in bbm. Mine lock up randomly but never when I am in bbm. What I do notice is that 80% of my freezes occurre when I remove phone from leather pouch. Is anyone else seeing this happen often?

    BBM has been a major issue for many people.

    The first I heard of issues were related to devices not unlocking (via button on top) when BBM was running in the background. Either waiting or battery pull was required.

    Now it appears that the BBM code base is conflicting with the core .99 OS.

    Not a surprise.

    chez it doez!
    it did it more with .90 than it does with .99...i might have to switch back to .75 i cant keep pulling the battery 5-6 times a day...
    it also lags the BBM msgs, it shows like they were delivered but the receiver has already replied to them and BBM only shows as Delivered and not Read.

    I am another that has this issue with BBM.

    .75 and .85 were fine... no issues with it freezing up.

    .90 and .99 both had the issue for me...

    BBM works fine for a while but then cause a freeze that makes me pull the bat to get back to normal.

    I have had the issue in every version of BBM I have tried including .75 (.99 now)

    My sister with a pearl also has BBM lockups. It seems the app is just poorly written.

    There are scattered reports in both the findings thread and a few others of not just BBM but AIM and other Messaging Aps (not mail) also causing freeze ups - some requiring a bat pull, others just temporary. Not sure there is an effective workaround yet, except for OS .76.

    Nope, and it hasn't done so with any OS versions I've ever used.

    BBM freezes on mine if I leave a convo up and the screen turns off and then i switch screen orientation after I have received a message. Pretty annoying, but I've gotten used to just existing out the convo after I send a message.

    Mine will lock up as well. I did not have a lot of usage in past versions, however it is very annoying on this version. It will happen when the phone is idle and charging (I noticed the time was off a couple hours on the display) other times while using even while holstered. Hopefully resolution comes quickly!

    Same problem here. Only has happened twice, the first time I just waited it out and BBM closed itself. Second time, I had to pull battery.

    With .99 when it freezes it's always in landscape mode. But yes, BBM, Gtalk, MSN in landscape more does freeze my Storm. So before I leave the conversation I make sure it's in portrait and close out of the convo.

    IT's annoying but .99 is still better than the rest!
    RIM FIX THIS!!

    Never had a problem with BBM locking before I went to 99. Not only does BBM lock, but Yahoo messenger as well.

    BBM does not lock up for me in .99, but it also has never locked up in any previous version.
