    Blackberry Messenger is down and I have heard reports that if you download this update that there is a possibility that you will lose all your contacts. Supposedly RIM is aware of this issue and is working to fix it.

    works in the EU at least

    Installed via this link using the BB browser, and after the re-boot everything was fine.

    But please be aware that many users are reporting problems losing their contacts due to BBM being down at the moment, so maybe it is worth waiting a bit before upgrading especially for all of you located in North America!

    Another thing you CB do is backup via desktop manager and then restore if you lose them.

    you're more than right!

    "BlackBerries hit by third major outage
    updated 05:35 pm EST, Tue December 22, 2009
    BlackBerry e-mail, messaging down again

    BlackBerry users this afternoon have reported another outage affecting the smartphone platform's BlackBerry Information Service. The failures appear broader than the primarily mail-related delays from just last week and now also affect web browsing, BlackBerry Messenger and third-party apps that use Internet access. RIM has been contacted by Electronista for commentary but hasn't yet had the opportunity to respond.

    The issue represents the third such failure within weeks and comes just as RIM is counting on continued strong sales to buffer itself against competition from the iPhone, which may come close to or match BlackBerry sales based on some analyst estimates.

    RIM's system has previously drawn criticism for its heavily centralized nature that passes many messages and some other data through its own servers. The technique is key to the BlackBerry's push e-mail delivery but has resulted in numerous outages, particularly for individual users that don't have a BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Most competitors, like Android and iPhone, have service-independent push that usually depends on the using widespread standards"

    +1 Agreed....you may still have the older version installed on your phone. Make sure you delete....reboot....install new version and then reboot again.
