    Not sure if this is somewhere mixed in the forums already but I just got word of this from a source at VZW... Here is the email..

    Update goes live tomorrow.
    FYI...

    ALERT - BlackBerry Messenger Maintenance Release

    Enhancements:
    * Send compressed pictures by default
    * Simplified UI for posting a picture within groups *Preview Ability *Cancel option when sending Voice Note * Option to turn off group notifications including sound, ribbon icon, and red splat PLUS General improvements to file transfer issues, avatar updates, group and SMS chat.

    Customers using BBM 2.0 and above will receive an upgrade notification.

    **ALERT! Leaked Version Shut Down
    *In addition to the BBM 5.0 Maintenance Release there will also be a BBM Shut down for those users still on the leaked version.
    *Approximately 175,000 users still using leaked version *Upon shutdown users on BlackBerry Messenger v5.0.0.08 will experience one or more of the following scenarios:
    *All contacts appear online

    Verizon would not warn of shutting down leaks, nor would they care that would be RIM only. And at that, RIM wouldnt tell VZW nor woudl VZW inform its users. they would just shut it down. I would ask your source for more clarification on this

    Well obviously they would because this is the email that was sent out to their employees.... I understand where you are coming from but it is what it is...

    I know I was disappointed when the update did not come out either. All I was trying to do was share what VZW was sending out to SOME of their employees. When it was getting later in the day I asked my source about it and another email came out saying that it was being postponed but it will being happening at some point. All of you should know that these things tend to never happen as planned. Sorry for any confusion wasn't my intent at all.

    Edit: I was actually almost excited thought that I could put one by the all mighty BBOS but that was a FAIL.... Until next time... I posted previously before about VZW releasing 4.7.1.61 for the tour and everyone flammed on me saying that wouldn't happen and long and behold it did so we will just have to see...

    Actually, I think something about bbm 5.0.0.8 being shut down is true. These guys posted what looks like a cap from vzw infomanager. BlackBerry Messenger 5.0.0.8 Shut Down! - BlackBerry Leaks - Blackberry news, software, videos, info, reviews, previews

    Lots have been posting that 5.0.0.5x will be a maintenance release (and coincidentally, included in the 5.0.0.41x+ release on the 9700 that will be coming in the next little while).

    It makes sense to me. The page linked above says that users of version 5.0.0.8 will be getting a PIN message telling them to update, not users on 5.0.0.33.

    If this happens to be true, and only people running 5.0.0.8 get the PIN, it sends everyone a huge message as to how much RIM really knows about what software/OS versions we are running on our phones.

    And might coincidentally stop a lot of leaks that are happening.

    "Don't run non-approved software on your phones, because we can and will terminate them/it".
