    Does BBM need to be installed on .230 in order to use SMS? If I un-install BBM 5.0 I can no longer use my SMS. It gives me an UnCaught Error Exception popup each time.


    I think this may of happened because at first I imported all my contacts into BBM, and sent text messages through BBM. Then in an attempt to free up some memory, I then un-installed BBM and the problem started happening after that.


    Anybody know a fix for this problem?

    Never uninstalled BBM5 so cant say from experience, but what i would do is reinstall BBM and go in and delete all of your SMS contacts in there. go ahead and uninstall BBM if you want and give it a battery pull for good measure. let me know if it works out for ya

    Tried that before I posted this thread. I deleted all my SMS messages and everything from BBM but had no luck.

    Same thing happened to me, funny thing is I left BBM unchecked in the initial install and it still installed. I just reinstalled and left it, will wait and see if Official has the same issue or not. Or if anyone else knows of a solution, feel free to chime in..

    Why did you uninstall BBM 5.0? Do you not use it?

    I got my storm 11-28 and deleted BBM two or three weeks later after I found out on crackberry that it is not part of the operating system and no harm would result. Have never had a problem with sms on any os and I have done them all from .90 to the current .323 minus .191. I would be surprised if just you not having BBM is the problem.
