    End all chats on your phone before opening PB bbm
    I wish that worked but it doesn't do a thing for this crashing issue. I have been working all day to try and figure this out, and it still crashes instantly when clicking on the BBM icon. I even manually paired my phone to the PB and the pairing was successful but I still can't get BBM to stay open on the PB

    I am ready to cry. I have my phone sitting 2" from my PB, BBM has all chats closed, there is no wind blowing, and yet when I click on the BBM icon on my PB -- it opens and closes so fast, taunting me

    You guys having BBM crashing issues - you might need the PB OS upgrade that's due out tomorrow to fix everything.

    The update is epic fail RIM. I updated bridge on my BB and rebooted both devices and tried rebridging my PB but nothing. Doesnt give me any option for updating.

    EPIC FAIL. Good going RIM. So 3 weeks now the PB has been out and all we get is this?

    Kol, I originally had the BBM6 beta installed this morning and when this problem became evident I thought maybe that was the reason, so I uninstalled BBM6 and installed the brand new alpha release of BBM5 from this morning. NO JOY

    These are all leaked workarounds. The official update to the TabletOS is tomorrow. Wait until then, that might resolve issues people are having.

    there is no update on the Playbook it is all on your phone. You need the newest Bridge version and you need the newest BBM5 update that is on BB Beta Zone installed to your phone. Then you need to delete your old Bridge connections on your Playbook and your phone (in the Bridge app) reboot both devices, then re-establish a new Bridge connection.

    You do NOT need the beta version of BBM. Just make sure you have the released version 5.0.3.22

    for what its worth, I have a bb9800 on at&T I have the beta version of bbm 6 instaleld. I installed the OTA update to bridge that was posted here. rebooted my phone and click on bridge apps on the pb and BBM was listed. Waited about 2min and it connected and showed my active chats. Its up and running. seems to work ok.

    I just updated as well. My messages to web links are blue and they were not before. I can see the bridge files, but when i attempt to open, I get (There are no files that can be opened in this application) Thanks for the update, with the highlighted links i was able to update the security token for Salesforce and get it running on my PB.

    Actually you did:

    you need the newest BBM5 update that is on BB Beta Zone
    The BBM version is not the one in the Beta Zone. It's the released version.

    Anyone else experiencing bad memory leak with the new Bridge? My 9000 boots up with 32mb and within 2 hrs, it will drop below 20mb. It usually takes about 3 days to go that low.
