    Hi there,

    I installed BBM 6 yesterday and over the last 24 hours, I have noticed MAJOR slowness on my blackberry and am thinking that this has everything to do with the BBM 6 upgrade.

    I'm on a Blackberry is a 9700 with OS 5.

    Does anyone know of a solution that can allow me to downgrade my BBM back to the last v5 release?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Dov

    Hmm I know this isn't the solution answer, but have you tried a hard reset. (Pulling out the battery). I have the Storm 2 and noticed the same thing until I hard reset my phone, now it is running great.

    if your issue still exists after a few BPs make a back up, uninstall it
    and install the old version from this OTA

    Have been trying to downgrade but the file doesn't seem to work with my BB desktop manager.
    Some extra help would be appreciated.

    Just download it straight to your phone via the browser, rather than go through desktop manager.

    It doesn't work with DM because it's an OTA install.

    Hi Dave,
    BBM was being really laggy in that when I typed a message and hit send, it disappeared. Then about 5 or 6 seconds later, the message appeared in the convo. Very weird. I would type and the letters would pop in after a few seconds.

    must be a server error? Other people used that link and it worked but it's been down for a few days?

    Hi there, thanks for this link... I'm trying it now. I've also had problems with BBM6 on my torch, laggy etc. I also didn't like how they took out the show what I'm listening to option! I like that feature a lot.

    Sure is a slow download.

    I used to like that feature as well. I guess they do beta testing but then DON'T listen to any of the feedback....lol

    Glad it worked!
