    Love the new messenger 5.0 but...I hate that I have to accept pics and then save to phone. Didn't have to do this with original.

    Downloaded the leaked 5.0.0.8 and for a hot minute I was able to view pics sent to me w/o accepting/saving first. I was also able to take/choose a pic, crop it, then send! Loved that!! But then I couldn't do that anymore. Was hoping the new messenger had it but no. Or am I wrong??

    Please help!

    OS: 4.5.0.110
    Platform: 2.7.0.90

    Thanks!

    I was wondering the same thing. I am not sure I really like this aspect of it.

    i really hate how pictures are handled with the bbm 5 (which I LOVE in so many ways) my friend tried sending me a photo several times but each time I accepted it the download never progressed.......even after an hour. I sent her a few pics and it worked fine for her. Then another time I send a few pics while she was away from her phone and by the time she got my messages she couldn't accept them it said they had expired.

    I am having the exact same problem..... I actually deleted my bbm5 and then reloaded it and it works now. but my boyfriends bbm is doing the same thing and he did the same uninstall/reinstall that i did and it did not work for him.

    ANYBODY HAVE A FIX?

    wow that happened to me too.. when i upgraded it let me do the same viewing as previous version. but today it started up that save-first deal...can a program change midway like that? should i reinstall too?

    Yeah. They add so many features - awesome ones, but then they regulate the heck out of them...(RIM, that is.)

    I've had this happen to me too...both sending and receiving. I'm going to try the uninstall/re-install step and see if that fixes it.

    Thanks for chiming in!

    well that's at least a ray of hope. I'm going to try that and see if that works for me!

    Thanks!

    Any updates on this MAJOR pain-in-the-*** "feature"?
    I am going to try removing 5.0.0.33 and going back to v4.
    Really RIM... WTF?
