    i have .57 on my 8310. its absolute crap. its a complete crapshoot whether or not i get a preview option. sometimes i get a little thumbnail of the pic, sometimes i dont. sometimes i get a preview button so i can view it without downloading, sometimes i cant. sometimes it expires if i dont download it soon enough, sometimes i can wait over a day.

    this is nonsense. any way to figure this out, other than downgrade to the old bbm? im sick of telling people to re-send the photos. im also sick of having to download... and later delete... all of the photos everyone sends me.

    No preview option on my 8330. BS. You will have to downgrade to the 4.7 version.

    I believe it depends on what version the other person has as to weather or not you get the preview option. I have version .57 and haven't had any issues with the preview.

    sorry, been mia for a while.

    unfortunately, I don't think there is a satisfying solution for this problem. I think you may have to uninstall and go back to a version that DOES NOT preview at all and forget about it.

    Or just keep .57 and put up with it as best you can

    Like biomindscape, I have never had a problem with .57 as far as preview goes. but it IS a crapshoot...

    i had the same issue. my pics come in with or without preview from the same person. my solution is to End Chat, and usually it gives me a warning saying "File transfer in process..." but i wasn't downloading anything from my bbm contact. After you start a new convo previews come in fine.

    i think the BBM chat just glitches out after leaving it open for a long time (days along wtih battery pulls too) with lots of pic exchanges.

    friend and i both running .57
