    I'm using BBM 5.0 and when I update my status on my end, people don't see it on theirs. There was also an instance where my status update did go through but stayed there when i removed that status weeks before. Please help.

    SORRY FOR ALL CAPS, BUT I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION!

    HERE IS THE LINK FOR THE LATEST VERSION OF BBM 5.0.0.56!
    http://mobileapps.blackberry.com/dev...ry.do?code=bbm

    USE THAT LINK IN YOUR BROWSER ON YOUR BLACKBERRY AND IT SHOULD SOLVE ANY AND ALL PROBLEMS YOU WERE EXPERIENCING WITH THE OLDER VERSION OF BBM. HOWEVER, WHEN I DID IT, IT ERASED ALL MY BBM CONTACTS FROM MY BBM LIST (200 OR SO CONTACTS) BUT WHEN MY MOM DID THE UPGRADE TO 5.0.0.56 HER 5 CONTACTS EASILY, AUTOMATICALLY SWITCHED OVER. BE SURE TO BACK-UP YOUR INFORMATION BEFORE DOING THIS UPGRADE. OTHER THAN THAT, THANK GOD THAT STATUS UPDATES ARE BACK! ENJOY THE NEW BBM AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

    I heard your statuses don't update when you have 100+ contacts. True?

    I HAVE FIGURED IT OUT. That is the problem. If you have over 100 contacts your statuses will no longer update. i know it sucks.. but thats blackberry!

    I've got a stuck status from about 4 phones ago (8900, and two replacements and now my 9700). Good lord I have to get that off of there. Is there a way to purge it off?

    You could try clearing the BBM database in desktop manager. I used that solution to rid myself if the phantom indicator. Plug into your pc with usb cable, clear BBM database and reload contacts when done since they will be erased. It is only a guess but maybe that will work.

    That is exactly the problem. Over 100 contacts and you status wont update. However i know ppl with as many as 500 and updating with no problem. I have contacted RIM/Blackberry plenty of times in regards to this and gotten no resolve. I had to erase 200 contacts because i rather have an option of changing my thoughts. lol

    I cant update my status, only the default ones. When i try to go to the section to edit or put a new status, its frozen or locked. My cursor wont even stop in the section no more. I only have 38 contacts, and this has been going on for over 2mos now. One day this guys was looking at my bbm and he told me he locked my status messages where i couldn't update or change it. This is soooo damn annoying. My phone also says i have 2 bbm messages alerts but i don't, this notification has yet to disappear. I have removed the battery, clear caches, had phone service off, and am using 5.0.0.66 version...can anybody help me?

    All you hav to do is go to options > advanced options > Host Routing Table
    Then bring the menu up (bb logo button) and select Register Now.
    This will send u an email. After u receive it (DO NOT ERASE IT), reset ur phone. when it starts up again, ur status will come up as it shows up on ur bbm, without havin 2 end chats or delete contacts!

    I had exactly the same problem when my bbm personal message or status wouldn't change but my display picture did. So i read a lot of suggestions online and i decided to delete most of my contacts until i had less that 100 and IT WORKED!!! i was very happy because my pm could change now so i definitely recommend that!
