    I installed this version this morning and since then battery drain has been 7.5% per hour. Anyone else having this problem? Needless to say, it's not much use not being able to get through the day on one charge.
    Nothing else changed and I didn't even really use the BB any more than usual. Generally I still have 60% left when I come home.

    Running OS 5.0.0.330 on my 9700 and this BBM works perfectly so far. Have the spell check, no issues with false message notifications.

    Can't send my location, but that's because my GPS will not find my location.

    when are they going to allow you to do something like this for SMS? anybody else annoyed by all the one at a time mess with BBs. Seems primitive.

    this is my experience with sending pics with this version, of course when both devices were running the new version

    If you send a picture from an open chat window, by pressing the bb button and choosing "send picture". The person receiving the picture will get three options. Preview which can be opened instantly and saved by pressing the bb button and choosing save (this replicates the way pics are sent in the old bbm) The second option is you can accept and download the full resolution picture, and finally you can decline. So, technically this gives you the options to receive pics as before with bbm 4 or the new bbm 5.

    The only problem is, from what i've seen so far this doesn't work when you send a picture from an album. So if you open a picture from an album and then decide to send it from there by pressing the bb button and choosing send to messenger contact. the person receives the pictures with only "accept" and "decline" option and NO preview. Don't know aout when sending from camera application.

    If any one out there that knows how to fix this please let me know.

    Here's something I noticed, the "check spelling" option only shows up if you have text in the entry field. Just type a bunch of random characters then hit the BB key and see if "check spelling" shows up.

    I'm stickin with .55 for now. I only really use the spell check in emails anyway. And the fixed picture preview thing is pretty nice.

    Hopefully RIM will push out a maintenance release once they realized they screwed up.

    I have OS 4.5 on a 8330 -- downloaded .55 and it looks the same. Some of the enhancements may be OS dependent.

    No spell check for me, but who really needs spell check for BBM's?

    My problem is that my notifications never disappear. Its stuck at 1. It increases with each notification I get but always resets to 1. Very annoying. Plus I noticed I no longer get the notification symbol on the actual BBM icon. Battery pull doesn't fix problem. Anyone have this issue? What should I do?

    Is the new version of BBM worth changing for or are there bugs with it as well?
