    Welcome to BBOS.

    Here it is the OTA for BBM 5, if you're running OS 5.0:

    From my experience ee,

    Your contacts should populate along with your new BBM 5.0.
    Hope this helps and Welcome to BBOS.

    Ok. Sorry to bug with a BBM 5.0 problem - but....I have to have some help. I have a Sprint 9630 Tour running 4.7.1. I have OTA installed BBM 5.0 with no trouble. I can send messages, they are delivered confirmed and read confirmed. My contacts are getting the messages. However, I can not received their replies. I have tried a battery-out hard restart and everything. I am REALLY dying here - since I use BBM for mass communication with work, family and friends. This is putting me in a big bind. Please HELP ! ! !

    Welcome to BlackberryOS. I have heard of numerous unexplained issues with BBM5. It's a beta version so it is bound to have bugs. It could be something that is not fixable. If that's the case, it would be best to revert back to the older version of BBM.

    You have the Tour right? Delete BBM 5 from you phone. Options > Advanced > Applications. Highlight BlackBerry Messenger > Press Menu > Delete. Your phone will probably want to reboot. When rebooted go to this link on your phone: http://www.tinyurl.com/tourbbm47. It should install the old version for you.

    Hi Emim, welcome to BBOS!!! What OS are you running on your 8330?

    **The reason I ask is BBM 5 works on OS .138 or greater. If you are running anything older, you would need to upgrade first. If you are running a higher one, here is the link to all OTA BBMs: BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 OTAs. Make sure and select the corresponding one to your OS, i.e BBM 4.6 for OS 4.6 and so on. They are all BBM 5s but are modified to each OS.

    * More BBM 5.0 Help *

    Sprint Tour here still trying to get BBM 5.0 to work. Here is what my phone is running.

    BB 4.7 Core Application
    BB 4.7 System Software
    BB App World1.0.0.30
    BB App Center 4.7.1
    BB Maps 4.7.1
    BBM 4.7.0

    I have attempted the OTA installation of BBM 5.0 several times. I can get it downloaded, installed and my BBM contacts populated with no problems. I can send messages, receive delivery and read confirmations. However, I can not receive incoming messages!

    I just installed BBM 5.0 on my wife's Curve - and she loves it. It works perfectly.

    Can someone PLEASE HELP? Any ideas ? I am somewhat proficient with electronics.....but not advanced. So, any ideas you have - please be very specific and outline in First Grade language ! LOL

    Thanks...:hail:

    Please go to BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 OTAs on your phone and select the BBM version for your phone. It's an OTA (over-the-air), so means, no Desktop Manager involvement needed.

    EDIT: Here is actually Tour specific link: BBM 5 for Tour

    This is the correct OTA for the BBM 5.0 for a Tour 9630

    http://www.theiexplorers.com/BBM/For_4.7.1/BBMen.jad

    Copy/Paste this .jad file into an email and send it to your device.

    Once your device receives this file, select the link to download the file. If your device asks you if you want to copy of an existing BBM 5.0 application select yes.

    This is the new pearl flip and it should. I believe that that phone runs the 4.6.1.XXX software version, but you are showing OS 5.0 or higher.

    You need to download BBM by clicking on the this link from your blackberry browser. This will install BBM50 OTA. After the install of the software you will need to perform a battery pull and delete your old BBM 4.7.
