    I wasnt having any on my Storm, at first, I was, but thats when RIM & VZW were having issues, then it worked itself out.

    I just installed it on my tour last night and have been having the issues ever since I installed it.

    Storm BBM 5.0 HELP!!!!!!!!!

    Hello everyone I am pulling my hair out over this new BBM 5.0!!!! Here's the short of it. I downloaded the .jad file loaded it into applications in DM and loaded onto my phone.....viola, it worked and there was happiness. So being the loving husband I am I plugged my wifes phone in and presto same result... Now we could BBM with avatars and scan barcodes ahhhh life is good. That was the peak of my happiness however ... after about 1 hour I BBM'd my wife and it went directly to me. HUH weird I thought. So I called her and asked her to try BBMing me and her phone told her that I wasnt a contact anymore.....what????? So began the process of loading and re contacting and re downloading OTA and wiping and other crap only to have the same problem over and over and over. My BBM was swapping her contact PIN with mine thus BBMing myself only under her name (sometimes hers did the same thing). I figure this has do something with the fact that I used DM and did one right after the other but I'm not sure. I've reinstalled and turned off the auto backup contact feature but still no lucK! This sucks somebody please help me! I'm running 5.0.0.140 and shes on 4.7.0.151. Thanks

    I remember seeing someone else with this issue once before, but I don't recall anything ever being resolved without drastic measures.

    That is frustrating. Here is something to try since you guys are running different OS's. Once again delete BBM off of your phone.

    Since you are running 5.0 download the following OTA to your phone: http://www.theiexplorers.com/BBM/For_5.0.0/BBMen.jad

    For your wifes phone, since she is on 4.7 she should use the following OTA:
    http://www.theiexplorers.com/BBM/For_4.7.0/BBMen.jad

    Once installed each of you do a battery pull and see if that helps.

    LifeofLeiser - I am having the same problem as you. I upgraded my device to OOAK's hybrid on Saturday and then upgraded my wife's to Lyricidal's last night, when I reloaded her BBM mine went blank and she had a combination of all her contacts plus mine. This is the second time this has happened to us. We each had contacts backed up on our STORMs but were unable to retrieve them off the memory card (sep issue I guess). The only fix we could figure was to delete my contacts off of her device (leaving only hers) and I re-added to mine.

    Does anyone know why BBM would duplicate contacts on different devices? My understanding of BBM is that it is PIN driven and each BB has it's own unique one.
    Any information/feedback on how to alleviate this in future upgrades would be much appreciated.

    Hey wolvrne1,

    Maybe a solution for you would be to backup your device before performing any upgrades/hybrid installations to your device. Then once your installation is complete, use DM to reinstall your BBM contact list from the advanced tab in your Backup/Restore feature.
    What do you think?

    MePascal -

    thanks for the quick response. I used BBSAK to back up both of our 3rd party apps, and then DM to back up each device into sep folders. when I
    restored each backups I pointed DM to the specific named file. Suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Maybe you can try restoring your BBM contacts this way. Before installing an OS/Hybrid to your device, backup your device first. Then after installing your new OS/Hybrid, open DM and navigate to the Advanced settings in the Backup/Restore feature. From the advanced tab, you should be able to select just your saved BBM contacts that you had previously saved.

    What do you think?

    MePascal -

    Anything is worth a try. Will attempt this evening and let you all know the results. Thanks again for ur assistance... BBOS Rocks! :hail:

    BBM 5 on Pearl 8130?

    Has anyone had success in loading BBM5 on a Pearl 8130? I tried a OTA install on my wifes Pearl yesterday ( Running OS 4.5.0.77) Seemed to install ok but could not find icon. It was listed under apps but couldn't find it anywhere. So I ended up reloading the original BBM using Destop manager. I have the files to load BBM 5 into the OS folder on my computer and then load using app loader but havent tried it on this phone. Think it will work? Are these files meant to work only with the Curve or will they work on the pearl? Thanx for the help.

    I put BBM5 on my wifes pearl 8100 (T-mobile). I upgraded her phone to a 4.5 OS from 4.2 but what I had to do was delete the original BBM then download BBM5 via OTA and it worked fine. I used her phone to scan my barcode off of my storm with no problem. Hope this helps you.
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!

    To elaborate on what Storm5150 said... You would need to update the OS on the device to a higher version. BBM5 won't work on .77. If you need help doing this, let us know.

    So, WHICH version of 4.5 for the pearl it will work on? According to Storm5150 it worked. Found a couple of OTAs that just say "4.5.0" in the link.

    I've never seen BBM5 work on an OS lower than 4.5.0.131. What carrier are you on? I'll see what the latest version is or if I can find a version that will work for you.

    I put OS 4.5.0.162 from East Asia on my wife's 8100 on T-mobile. But this was for an 8100 and I own a storm so I don't know as much about the Pearl, give me a few minutes and I'll find the link and see if it is compatible with the 8130
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!
