    Well, there are a few out there. Would need to know who your carrier is and if your model 8130 is ESN or not, depends on how new I think, again I'm not as familiar with the Pearl but it appears something is out there and I downloaded from the blackberry.com site it's not a hybrid or leak as far as I know. Get back with me on this info and I'll link something here. It looks like 4.5.0.160 and 4.5.0.131 are out there depending on your device.


    When in doubt, pull the battery out!

    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.
    Jlevy - trying to d/l bbm5.0 to my storm using the link you provided. it does not seem to be working. Is there a better link I can use? I am trying to OTA while I am at work? Thank you.

    Try this one BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 OTAs and choose the one you need.

    can you please tell me if BBM is email or PIN driven (believe it is the latter)? Reason I ask is if you go back through the posts on this thread
    several times I have remarked about how mine and my wife's contacts
    keep getting merged on each others devices, which causes a conflict and
    BBM stops working. Even more incredible is that her user name will become mine or vice versa. I (we) have deleted all of our contacts, re-installed numerous times and still end up with the same result... It is
    very frustrating. Any suggestions before I downgrade? Thank you. :aargh4:

    It is PIN driven....but with the new BBM, if you go into "edit my info" and scroll down to the bottom, the emails that you have on your BB are merged into bbm as well. So, I would think if you and your wife share emails, that might cause the issue. Try setting another one as default.

    Thank you for the quick response... I deleted the joint email, restarted my BB, deleted BBM5.0 and again restarted. Just OTA'd and am adding contacts back in. Hopefully that will fix the problem, I really don't want to have to go back to the downgraded version.

    Let us know if that solves the issue...as I am sure others would benefit as well

    I must say I am not impressed with BBM 4.7 on my Tour so I upgraded to 5.0

    Still experiencing problems between both mine and my wife's storm. Have removed the joint email account from both and our contacts/screen names are still intertwined. Does anyone know how to remove an email association with BBM? I went into 'edit my info' and deactivated all my email addy's but that does not seem to help. This is a problem that just won't seem to go away...

    You may want to think about doing a security wipe to clear the user settings of the device.

    MePascal -

    as always thanks for the quick response. How do I do that and do I need to back up my device first?

    Thanks to both of you... I will try it when I get home... This has been very frustrating as most of you at BBOS can attest to... Just can't get this figured out and I really don't want to have to downgrade my BBM...

    In addition to everyone's suggestions, you removed the emails from your BIS service, correct? (not just phone?)

    I would definitely suggest like MePascal and Bryan:

    Double check your and your wife's BIS settings
    Do a back up
    Wipe and reload the OS
    Do a security wipe
    Install fresh copy of BBM BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 OTAs

    I would even suggest writing down PINs/names, deleting all BBM back ups, and adding people manually.
