Big shout out to the guys at BlackBerryOS for hooking us all up!

Bb 9000 verry fineJuly 23, 2009 at 8:14 AM #178847
I am one of the many who installed bb messenger 5.0 as soon as it came out. Worked fine for a day after which it started having issues, 3 out of 5 messages would go, the status of my contacts wouldn’t change, messages would be delayed by 20 min etc etc.
I managed to do a good install used it for 3 days now without any issue, although i probably wiped my phone 10 15 times until i realized the problem. It seems that 1st you cant install the new bb messenger on top of the old one, neither can you load contacts from the old one to the new one from a back up (Went through all databases one by one). Both of these create a issue with the bbm.
What I did was use jl cmdr, and wipe out my entire blackberry and reloaded the os minus blackberry messenger. Then I installed the new blackberry messenger on the phone with a clean os which has no blackberry messenger files. I then loaded my entire backup on my phone the normal way and got a java error my bbm wasn’t working. But what i did was use the bbm to create a backup of all my contacts on my media card.
I repeated the entire process again wiping the phone, loaded the os without bbm, installed the new one once the phone started and imported all my contacts through my backup. Now what i did, i opened my backup through the advanced feature of desktop manager and loaded all my databases except the bb messenger, Google messenger ones.
My phone works like a charm plus I didn’t loose all my databases. What i did loose was my applications but i didn’t mind installing 10 of them again.
Hope this works for you guysJuly 23, 2009 at 8:53 AM #178848
I backed up my contacts first time through the new bb messenger just as clarification……………it opened let me backup but didnt let me send messagesJuly 28, 2009 at 12:37 PM #178849
This is used for the ‘Recovery Emails’ section of ‘Edit My Info’. It wirelessly backs up your contact list for you. If you reinstall, it will send that email again, BBM reads the email and says, “Yep, that’s for me.” and then it requests your contacts back and restores them. Works like a charm; had to do it last night when I installed OS 188.8.131.52 and reinstalled BBM.August 17, 2009 at 6:42 AM #178850
This happened to my friend too. I wonder if you have to update your version before doing it. I’m running the 184.108.40.206 and mine is working with no problems.August 17, 2009 at 6:43 AM #178851
