    8330 help: How to go back to old BBM???

    My son has the 8330 and we have verizon service. we downloaded the leaked BBM 5.0 (not knowing that it would not work right). It installed on the device and was showing it was there, but did not work. Went and deleated it but can not find regular BBM to put back on. So I was going to wipe it and put a clean install of the OS back on with BBM but cant the offical OS for verizon. How do I go about fixing this issue so my son can use his BBM? Thanks.

    I am assuming, you want to keep this OS, correct?

    If yes, this is what you need to do:

    1. Download and install 4.5.0.77 to computer from verizon BlackBerry® Software Updates (select phone model, enter phone #, scroll to the bottom and click download)
    2. Connect the phone to PC, then open DM, and click add/remove applications, and the blackberry messenger should be in the list to select. Select the checkbox and click next. Wait for it to be complete and do a battery pull. Good luck.
