    Well if you are comforable with it, I would suggest you update to a beta 5.0 OS. it will give you a little more function in BBM 5, like adding text contacts into BBM instead of only PIN contacts. I am using 5.0.0.238 and it works perfect. Of course if you aren't comfortable with upgrading your OS, DON'T DO IT!. Soon there will be an official 5.0 OS coming from AT&T

    good luck, make sure you install through loader, delete the vendor.xml file. directions are here at the top of the 8900 forum, Very easy as long as you follow the directions. Good luck!

    It is in the same folder as loader, just look in the list and make sure that it isn't in there. Another reason that I don't us DM to update because it will often times replace the vendor file after i remove it. Are you using loader?

    loader is on C:>program files>common files>research in motion>apploader. apploader is what you use to upgrade after you install the new OS on your computer, somewhere in that list of files there will be a vendor.xml file, Delete it, click on loader, it will find the new OS, click next and let the computer do the rest, takes between 15 and 45 minutes

    what does the vendor file do?

    Its the file that associates Dm with your carrier. If you try to download a OS not supported by your carrier it will stop it from happening. It doesn't mess with any function of your phone, remove it and use any OS you want!
