| | BBM - Expiring Photos
Please Login to Remove!
After upgrading to BBM 5.0 it seems photos sent are handled differently. Previously, photos sent used to be just like normal messages - and you could then view it. Now, it sends a file transfer request - which expires after 30 mins or so...Any way to get it back to the previous way - other than the obvious of rolling back to the previous version?
Another issue is if the photo is a larger than say 100k - it takes a very long time for the file transfer to complete (even on wifi or 3G)
P.S. I know why it does so - its because of the new BBM having enabled the Large File Transfer feature. But my question is that is it possible to use the old functionality for smaller files?
