    I have noticed that after installing the latest BBM 5.0.1.38, I no longer have the option of choosing what size photo I'd like to send. BBM butchers the photos, a 300KB photo would be sent as 20KB photo.

    This is true if both the sender and the recipient have the latest version, or at least the recipient.

    I tried sending as a file but still the same thing. Is there a workaround for this? This is quite an irritating problem for me as I send and share photos quite a lot.
    I can't imagine why RIM would force such a thing on the users, minimzing bandwidth use while irritating the **** out of their customers.

    When they receive the image, they can hit menu and select "request larger photo" option or similar and it'll ask you whether to send it. I am not using the latest bbm for that very reason...

    Thanks for the info. That sure is a strange way of doing things.

    There are so many things I despise about this latest BBM update! Worse "upgrade" ever by RIM, imo.
