    Usually it's one of two things. Either the OS version installed on the device is lower than 4.5.0.138 which does not support BBM 5.0. Or the version of BBM the person installed is the incorrect version for the device. I helped a guy earlier today that had this problem. He has an 8350 Curve. So he downloaded the version for the Curve. However the 8350 runs OS 4.6.1 so it was the incorrect version.

    As sunkast said, need to make sure they are trying to install the correct version. I know that TMO just came out with an official release (HERE), install this and then cut and paste the new BBM files 4.6.1 in the OS, you wont need the BBM.ALX file either using this method and you should be good to go

    I personally didnt have much luck with the OTA, once I did the manual install it went without a problem.

    I was having the same problem, my solution was to redownload the BBM 5.0 bam i was back on the screen. I am running 4.6.1.250, than all my contacts were gone and i started to panic. I just did a battery pull and every contact i had (all 13 of them) came back.

    I recommend doing a battery pull before you try anything else. it worked for me.

    Today I installed BBM 5.0 to my curve 8320 running 4.5.0.124 and it works perfectly fine without any glitches.

    Good job kewlaruba,
    and Welcome to BBOS.
    Hope you enjoy the Forums. It's a little hectic around here right now with the leak of the 5.0 OS for the 9530 so make yourself welcome and maybe head over to the new member forum and introduce yourself.
