    Chrys. I had the same problems. Can you check and see what version of BBM is on your Tour now. 4.7.1 or 4.7.0. Mine was 4.7.0. Im not sure which fixed my Tour, but I used the 4.7.0 files from the storm and loaded them in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9630-v4.7.1.40_P4.1.0.40 directory. Its worth a shot.

    I would encourage you to upgrade your curve to a version that's higher as it's been known for bbm to not work well with lower versions.

    Just checked on Blackberry.com and it said I have the most up-to-date software for my device. Hmmm wonder what else it may be?

    It probably is....let me find you the link to leaked OS, as like I mentioned, the new bbm doesn't play nice with older OS.

    Ok, here is 4.5.0.160: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...html#post72531

    Here are more: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/8...-software.html

    Make sure and delete vendor.xml file in c/program files/common files/research in motion/app loader and scroll down to bottom, for OS from different carrier. Oh, and don't forget to back up first, both phone and 3rd party apps.

    Let us know if you have more questions

    first step backup your data via dm
    back up your 3rd parties with this link ; http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/h...lications.html

    remove any os from your pc c: control panel > add/remove programs > delete any RIM os there one will be DM the other if any will be the os

    download this 4.5.0.160 https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E607FE7CC0E1A0


    once it's loaded on the PC ( takes about 20-30minutes) follow this path
    c: program files > common files > research in motion > apploader - at the bottom of the list you should see a file called a vendor file - delete that. reboot pc

    download this; http://www.berryosfiles.com/downloads/BBM_4.5.0.zip
    to your "my doc's" extract or save to..: open that and right click on the single file ( blackberry messanger .alx) copy

    reopen c: program files > common files > research in motion > now go to shared > loader - place it here

    go back to BBM5 file and select every other file and place them in here;
    c: program files > common files > research in motion > now go to shared > loader - open your os and open the java folder and right click paste 0 over write all files

    NOW YOUR DONE INSTALLING BBM5.0

    now we load--- go to c: program files > common files > research in motion > apploader and with your device pluged in open the apploader icon (looks like a little phone) follow the steps but make sure you put a checkmark beside any of the apps in the list you want to be placed back onto your device.

    give it a shot and let us know if you get stuck

    My Research In Motion folder doesnt contain the folders Shared, Loader, or Java, can I just create them?

    Thank You,

    Curve 8330, Verizon, DM 5.0.

    AstroAK, Do you have an OS installed on your PC? Sounds like you don't. Those folders you are missing are generated once an OS is installed to PC.

    Download the most recent (official or leaked) software for your phone and then install it. This will create the required folders.
