    If you tried this during the first few days (a few weeks ago) then RIM had capacity problems but has since fixed all of those issues. You should give it another shot now. It is worth it in my opinion.

    Actually, there is an OTA for BBM5 for 5.0 OS....try this: BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 OTAs

    If you need the OTA links so you can download and install from your phones please go here Downloads OTA and download the version for your phones.

    You will want to perform a battery pull after install.

    Great to see you got it working nlonigro. I am a BBM 5 user as well. I have enjoyed the new features.

    Again welcome and hope to see you around the Forum.

    I'm using the 5.0 BBM with my Tour as well and I am having similar issues. some messages are going thru and some aren,t and some are taking a long time, then theyll go through. I am running the factory installed operating system, is that why? Do I need to upgrade? Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried reinstalling it ?

    Here is a link to some Active OTA links

    Scroll to the bottom and you will see them 4.7.1 :-)

    Yup. tried that, maybe I'll try it again and see if it helps.

    Every time I try to send a message out of maybe 1 out of 5 will go through, sometimes, maybe 15-20 min later it would get delivered, but sometimes never at all.

    I'm downloading from here: BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 OTAs

    Is this the latest download?
