    All the BBM5 users

    So with the leaks of .191 for the Tour and the Storm and seeing all the posts on BBM5 not working, and it being a deal breaker for some. I thought I would ask and include a poll just to see what everyone has to say. When I used BBM5 I loved the features but could not stand the hit and miss of sending or receiving messages. That was a deal breaker for me as I needed a fully working BBM, and so I have been on 4.7 since. But with all the posts on BBM not working it seems either it works better then it did for me, or the features are just to good for most to pass up. So let's hear what you think

    So you don't have any issues sending or receiving messages? Or them being delayed at all?

    I agree with bryan sometimes the messages are hit pr miss but I find myself enjoying the BBM5 too much to give it up.

    BBM 5.0 had been flawless for me. I had not experienced any delays or missed msg's. I will miss 5.0 with 191..

    I've been lucky enough to never have experienced any message issues with BBM5.

    Like you Bry, I consistently had issues with BBM 5 so not having it on 191 is not a deal breaker.

    Really the only time I have had a issue sending/receiving sms with bbm5 is when my phone has switched from 1XEV to 1xev or 1X.

    This switching usually happens when I am at home as I am in a low area and the sat towers no matter cell provider comes and goes depending on where I am within the house.

    1XEV works 100% of the time
    1X works but very slow. Hardly notice when sending txts, but MMS yes, I notice it takes a while to send.
    1xev never works for me- except on voice calls.

    Just my two cents,
    Statustray
