Default Downgrading BBM 6.0 to

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there,

I installed BBM 6 yesterday and over the last 24 hours, I have noticed MAJOR slowness on my blackberry and am thinking that this has everything to do with the BBM 6 upgrade.

I'm on a Blackberry is a 9700 with OS 5.

Does anyone know of a solution that can allow me to downgrade my BBM back to the last v5 release?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

8310 or 9700 yor tag shows the 8310 and are asking about the 9700.
I upgraded to OS6 on a few 9700's and see no problems. I do not have a ton on Apps and the memory is good and allows free and quick function. Try reading the link i added and correct your tag if wrong.

How do I downgrade the OS on my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

Oops! I upgraded BBM to v6 tonight.
Silly me trusted AppWorld.
I'm still running OS v5, so why did BBM v6 allow me to upgrade?
That's besides the point.

Can anyone point me to an older V5 BBM, please?
