    I have a blackberry curve 8330 with OS 4.5 and I downloaded the new BBM 5.033 and I hate it. Can anyone tell me how to get the old version back on my phone?

    You should be able to run apploader and chose to download as long as you have the current OS on your computer.

    i was thinking about rolling back my BBM5 to BBM4.5 also

    the new one is sucking up my free memory and honestly, other then the nicer GUI I really dont need the other bells and whistles

    While you are able to update without losing your contacts, you cant downgrade without it.

    Be sure to do a back up before downgrading your BBM.

    that was the exact answer i was looking for. thanx

    my other question, if i did a backup for my BB with bbm5 and do a restore, i would have thought that the restore would have upgraded the bbm4.5 to bbm5 at the same time. i guess it does not right??

    nope, it only backs up data, not actual programs or versions. if you backup with bbm5 and downgrade and then reload your backup you will be fine and it will keep 4.5

    You can also load 4.5 OTA with this link. Best to have your contacts backed up.

    I used the info on these threads thank you so much for the help. I lost my messenger contacts but kept everything else all my settings etc. I do have to reset my enterprise server though.
