    Hi. I have the 9700 (AT&T). It has BBM 4.7 installed. Is there a way to stop the "Upgrade available message" when i launch BBM? I do not want to install BBM 5.0. Thanks

    Why would you not want BBM 5.0?

    bbm 5 tends to mimic facebook, i like the simplicity of the old one without all the bells n whistles...

    Ditto...I think the new one is many times better than the previous version.

    just hide the icon... or is it the BBM icon that changes to say you need to upgrade? i upgraded a long time ago so i dont remember if its a new icon that appears or if its the BBM icon that notifies you...

    I like the BBM 5.0 but the only issue that I still have is I cant send pics from bbm to bbm. the other user receives the message that the pic is being sent but after they start the download it stalls. Happens to both me and my wife.

    For those who opened this thread hoping to find a solution instead of promotions for the 5.0:
    I don't know why but the upgrade availability popup just went away for me...so it could be just after x amount of warnings it stops telling you. Again i'm running bbm 4.7 on os5 on the bold 9700 and after a few days of just ignoring that popup, it went away...

    i can second the post above...i hated 5.0...went back to 4.7 and was still recieving the update notice until a few days ago...thank god, it was driving me insane.

    i prefer the simpler 4.7 bbm....5.0 is just too much crap

    It will send if you send it from within BBM instead of from the Pictures/Camera.
