RIM Says Exciting Things Are Coming to BlackBerry Messenger in Coming Days & Weeks

BlackBerry Messenger Exciting I had to read that twice myself. RIM has historically only provided significant updates to BlackBerry Messenger ever year or two. They have released small incremental bug fixes but there was a huge gap leading up to the current release.

RIM just posted on their Facebook page that “There are some exciting things coming for BlackBerry Messenger in the days (and weeks!) ahead.” That sounds promising! They claim you need to have the latest BlackBerry Messenger 5.0.0.57 to be part of the new developments but you can easily pick that up at:

Anybody want to hazard a guess as to what RIM has in plan for BlackBerry Messenger? My guess is that they will be letting you backup your contacts, calendar, and other info to their servers so you do not lose it on a device upgrade or other situations.

  1. They are loosing my backed up data in the form of my groups in its current state, unless these are Fixes to the current issues list and not additional functionalities, then I say Welcome. If the latter I say so what, its only going to add to the current problems.

  2. I have had nothing but issues with groups backing up any time I have to update my OS or reload my OS. #fail

    • Yea, I lost all my groups on Recovery a few days ago, whats the point in having a Backup Service if I cannot restore. The BlackBerry Messenger Service (via Recovery Record) told me all my contacts were offline but restored the contacts as Individual’s. What Bull Dust. #MajorFail

  3. Who cares about BlackBerry Messenger and what about the sorry excuse for a Twitter client and the pathetic Facebook app? I want to see the new browser released already. RIM #FAIL

  4. Not that it’d really be a BBM feature, but backing more info up got me thinking. Why isn’t there a way to back up apps (free & paid) when upgrading a BB OS? Having that info stored on a server would be veeery nice. Especially considering iPhone users always have their iTunes to fall back on. ::slight tinge of jealousy::

    • Backing up apps would cost a lot of bandwidth, but I really think we should be able to back up our data (contacts, address book, memopad) and configuration OTA directly with RIM. That’s just text, not expensive. RIM, don’t be such a cheapskate. Both you and I know that you will be perfectly able to do that once the competition does.
