I'm having the same issues sending and receiving pics and I've discovered that it's only between my 2 phones with bbm 5.0. When a friend sends me a pic I get the old style with view and save, and it comes through automatically; I don't have to accept it.
The problem seems to be when sending from the camera or media card which never transmits, but when I send pictures from the bbm menu it works fine.
i have the 8900 and my contract says i get unlimited internet. does this bb have internet already in the phone? also when i try to add a friend via bb pin it says pending on my bb but on my friends bb's they dont get the invitation and visa versa if they try to add me. anyone have any idea whats wrong?
Has anyone noticed that the messenger history in a chat is now very limited?
In the old version I could scroll up hundreds or thousands of lines...several days worth at least. In this new version the history is gone pretty quick. I haven't counted the number of lines, but it seems like a hundred or less. I'm not sure why they changed this.
Also is there a way to have the contact name and the message on the same line to conserve screen space? My new BBM shows the chats like this:
Would you like to go to Lunch?
I recall the old messenger was like this:
Bill: Would you like to go to lunch?
The result is that the screen can only show 3 lines or so.
I have a BB Curve 8330. A friend of mine has the same phone too. He said that he got an icon saying upgrade BB messenger. I never got one. Does that just happen randomly? Do i just need to go to app world? The only app I have had notification for an upgrade(s) is facebook. Is there a special setting. I don't know too much about the BB, except for the fact I love using it with what I have. Thanks
