    The menu isn't very intuitive. I have to go to "Add Contact" to see my own barcode? Really? But that's really nitpicking. If you miss the old BBM, you're probably the type of person who misses rotary phones and rabbit ear antennas too.

    i just downgraded...the 5.0 looks cool buttt...it slowed my phone, people were receiving messages late or not at all...so maybe i will give it another go another time.

    as of right now, bbm 4.6>5.0! I like the new look but its too much stuff going on in that small space, even with the bold's big screen its still seems a bit much. sometimes less is more

    im not missing the old bbm since i still have it. i did not bother uploading the leaked beta. but ill tell you this, when the official new bbm hits, it will blow the old bbm away into pieces. its that good. its just a matter of time, thats all.

    He needs to update his curve to the latest OS and 5.0 will accessible as it's already installed. Ask me how I know...

    Sooooo.

    VERY, HIGHLY, RIDICULOUSLY, disappointed w/ 5.0.... Suuuuuuuper lag on BBM messages, messages NOT being delivered, having to send multiple bbms of the SAME MESSAGE just to make sure the recipient receives the message.
    So today, I downgrade back to 4.6 & here's what happened.

    I may have gotten the best of both worlds...

    under applications, I have BlackBerry Messenger (version) 4.6... back to instant bbms, quick delivery, smooth convos.
    but when I click the BBM icon, I have the 5.0 design & features.



    To those of you who have Bolds, hold off till the OFFICIAL release. That's just MY advice. Take it from someone who's tried it & disliked it. If not, hopefully yours runs smoothly & not like how my experience went.

    Am i correct to say that no leaked 5.0 BBM has threaded sms yet. Some claim to have it, i just want to clear things up, and want to stop the search for it.

    I've seen some changes on the performance on the new BBM in the last few days. It's getting much better. I'll stick with it.

    WELL I LOOK AROUND ALOT AND DIDNT FIND ANYTHING THAT WORKED, SO I DID FEW THINGS HERE AND THERE..

    FIRST I REMOVED THE NEW BBM 5 FROM MY 8900 CURVE. THERE ARE 2 WAYS OF DOING THAT ( I USE OSX / APPLE)

    1. GO TO OPTIONS IN THE MENU, THEN ADVANCE OPTIONS AND APPLICATIONS, REMOVE BLACKBERY MESSENGER.

    2. INSTALL DESKTOP MANAGER AND WHEN YOU SEE ALL THE APPLICATION THERE UN-CHECK BLACKBERRY MESSENGER. AND HIT UPDATE. IT WILL REMOVE THE BLACKBERRY MESSENGER.

    NOW THAT YOU HAVE REMOVED IT HOW DO YOU GET THE OLD ONE BACK.

    THIS IS WHERE I WENT MAD LOKKING FOR AN OTA(OVER THE AIR) LINK FOR THE OLD ONE AND FINALLY FOUND IT.

    HERE IT IS http://tjiputra.yapeter.net/bbm/8900/bbm8900_4_6.jad

    NOW YOU CAN EMAIL THIS TO YOURSELF AND CHECK IT ON YOUR BLACKBERRY AND CLICK ON GET LINK AND DOWNLOAD IT ON YOUR 8900 CURVE.

    I SUPPOSE ALL OTHER MODELS WOULD HAVE THEIR RESPECTED VERSIONS SO PLEASE TRY AND GET THE PROPER OTA VERSION FOR YOUR BLACKBERRY.

    HOPE IT HELPS
