    Verizon BB Curve 83XX/Missing BBM

    Hello I have a friend (for real, it's not me), who got a Verizon Curve/OS 4.3/BES from his job. It had BBM but he tried to upgrade to BBM 5.0, but didn't upgrade the OS from 4.3 to 4.5. He wont' be able to upgrade being that its a company phone.

    After he upgraded, the BBM icon disappeared & now would like to downgrade to the original version of BBM. How can he get the BBM w/out having to upgrade the OS? Thanks for any help with this.

    He could run back through the install process on the same os he has now. If he wants bbm 5.0 he can ota it after deleting the other off his phone and that should fix his icon problem. Stiefler is following me so he would probably put the oat link in here for him.

    Sounds good. i'll let him know to try to reinstall the BBM 5.0 again, now that there is no BBM at all. I was just under the impression that he had to have OS 4.5 to run BBM 5.0.

    If anything, i have an IS friend that will "push" the BBM through, but it's too much of an issue when you have to go through the company's IS dept.

    If you could find the OTA for the old BBM, that would be great!!! I guess my friend got jealous of me with my Bold w/my hybrid OS w/my BBM 5.0 w/my barcode & ninja avatar & all...lol. Thanks guys!!

    Check my above posts and yes, new BBM is recommended to have 4.5 not 4.3
