Default proximity alert not existent in messenger 5 release ?

Please Login to Remove!

When the beta release of the messenger 5.0 was leaked, it included a nice thing, called "proximity alert". When a friend was in a location nearer then X kilometers, your blackberry notified you.

Now, in the currently released messenger, this feature is missing.

Do I here miss something obvious, or, is it really not present any more ?

thank you.

I had the beta BBM5 as well and do not remember that feature... And not seeing it in BBM's current release version either, but how cool of a feature would that be tho!!?? Bummer they pulled it...

Go and do a google search for blackberry messenger proximity alert - that will confirm it was there.

Ok then, at least I am not blind.
I wonder, why rim dropped it. Worked rather we'll.
