Blackberry Messenger Beta Zone - v5.0.1.32 now available

For those of you participating in the BlackBerry Beta Zone, you'll be pleased to know that version 5.0.1.32 has now been posted for download. If you are a Beta Zone user, just login to your account and grab it (If you're signed up for the BBM program). Given the issues some users have been seeing with BlackBerry Messenger over the past week, this comes at a good time and hopefully for some users it may actually make things work a little better. No promises from me though. Hopefully, since Research In Motion has a big media push for BlackBerry Messenger they'll soon roll this release out to everyone through BlackBerry App World. Let us know if ya see any changes or how it's working for ya in the comments.

That is because it is only available for a limited amount of people on a first come, first serve basis, you'll have to wait until all previously registered members get their keycodes and if space is available you'll receive yours.

I was just gonna ask that same question. I just joined to try out this new bbm and its not in the list? I have a bold 9650 and listed my slef with that device when I signed up... I wonder if its only for certain devices.

I cant see the new bb messenger on my screen either? does that mean I am not eligible for it? I have the 9700

I've been a Beta Zone member for like 6 months and it doesn't show up for me either. I was kinda confused also. I thought it was just me

it hasnt been listed for sometime now, i been trying to get it since last weeka nd its not on the list of available programs

Glad I'm not the only one who isn't seeing it. I was wondering about that after the blackberry shield, or whatever they call it, came out in beta zone. Are they selective as to who they offer these thigs too? If so seems somewhat lame to me as the more feedback you get the better the product can be when finally offered up to the public.

You have to go on the Beta Website and click on Blackberry Messenger 5.0 then once you go to it you will see it states the new version...so I'm downloading now!! Hopefully its good.

Sorry guys, I had a question, I download the BBm5.0.1.17, and I got a keycode.
And now I download 5.0.1.32 .
May I use the same keycode from 5.0.1.17 or I need Waiting a new one?

Someone can tell me please!

go to Blackberry Beta Zone and sign in what do you need a link...go to the Blackberry Messenger download and redownload.

Even if you got a link it wouldn't work for you! The download requires a keycode, specific to your device & PIN. I know patience is fleeting here, but hang tight & hopefully the BB gods bestow the new BBM beta upon you all...

For anyone who is already testing RIM beta apps through RIM Beta Zone, your keycode remains the same for each application, so long as you continue to use the same device. I recently had to witch devices & had to have new keycodes emailed to me (took about a week!)

I been looking for almost an hour and cannot find this new beta program for bbm . Will it be listed under eligible programs ?

go to Blackberry Beta Zone

I have it, just use your brain and you'll find it. It is there. CLUE it is not in the screen after you login and see My Programs Eligible Programs etc.

If your a member of Beta Zone, you will find it under my programs. If it isn't there RIM haven't invited you YET!

Yes they stagger the invites and NO it doesn't matter who you are. There are some influential people in the BB world still don't have Facebook.

NO it can't be shared, its keycoded and PIN locked, yes FB had a work around but that works differently to BBM

Why don't you sign up and hope for the best

Sorry to interrupt your post Bla1ze, but it had to be said

What I can't understand is this: You sign up for the Beta program, and agree to the terms of the Agreement, then you come out and tell the whole world what you are testing and the results including screenshots and the works. Thats not very nice! (Not referring to anyone in this post)

In this vercion they fix a lot of bugs and its more faster for those who can't downloaded you have to log in in you beta zone profile and go to programs and it say blackberry messenger and download like the firts time and when. It download put your old activation code

I downloaded it today and while it has some nice new features (especially when sharing pics with other BBM conacts), My Group convos must load every time I click on the conversation. I get Please Wait Loading Chat EVERY stinkin time.

Slightly annoying.

OMG FOR THE LAST TIME...if you go to Blackberry Beta Zone then Click on Blackberry 5.0 and go to Download. If you are eligible it will say the .35 version instead of 5.0. Just dl it like you did the 5.0 and it will prompt you to replace it!!

What we're saying is that it does not say BlackBerry 5.0 and then follow with a download link! SCREW IT, I'll wait for it later! Now chill out!

I dont understand why people are being so secretive if you know then help ... obviously some us cant view it theres no point in getting pissed off if it was that fucking visible to some of us do you really think we would be asking for assistance .... damn .. its not that serious

Temper temper watch the language, your mother should wash your mouth out with soap. Just goes to show your level of intelligence if you react so abusively.

not sure if any one else is having this problem but I have no problem signing into beta zone on the computer but when I do it on the phone it keeps telling me its the wrong user name and password- rebooting now to see if that helps

Yall making it harder than what it is. So come on I'll hold your hand. Remember everybody might not be able to join!

For the last time. Not all beta users are eligible. So step three does not exist. So please change step 3 to FREAKIN CALM DOWN PEOPLE AND WAIT!

I really wonder if RIM should be weeding out some of the trash that seems to be in their Beta test program. Seems to me by their comments and failure to find the app to test would rule them ineligible. I'm just a voice in the wilderness, so who cares.

For those asking for the link, you can't get it unless you're a registered beta zone member and have accepted the BBM beta program, and for those that give out the link, you'll be booted by RIM. Is having your priviledge revoked worth it?

Just one beta zone member to another...

I'm trying to register last one month but it doesn't accept any password when I put there.what I am doing wronge guys any clue?Thanks

Can u give me exmp. of password pls?

If you are a member of the beta testers and you didn't get the invitation email just go to the list of programs yu testing and select messenger then download it.

This is getting me so frustrated. I log into my beta account on the computer without an issue. When I try with my phone I keep getting an err or message. I have rebooted phone and still can't do it. Any thoughts?

Connect the phone to the pc with the usb data cable, click on the download link(make sure yu using internet explorer) and load BBM from your pc. Its a really simple task. Can't see the reason for all the hassle. Come on guys!!! You can also get help in the beta forums.

That's so cool. Actually never knew you could do it like that. Thought it had to be thru desktop manager. Thanks.

send an email to betainfo@rim.com with your device and PIN and explain what happened.

I did something similar because it said I was participating but I couldn't for the life of me find a key code in my email inbox. I just emailed them and told them them and what device and PIN I had and they sent me a key code within 48 hours.

For those having issues... Try the beta testing forums on the blackberry beta site. Posting here is a breach of your confidentiality agreement... There is a lot of help to be had there. I really don't want them to start nuking our beta privileges again because of leaked info again...

I Really don't think me asking about a log in problem is violating any confidentiality agreement. Think you are a little over the top. Chill dude

Good job on being the only person in here helping out. It's good to know what we can expect if we get the chance to download this.

That some things should only be said in the beta zone forum itself. Login problems would be ok to ask here but problems or questions about any particular build should be posted where the devs will see it.

Just downloaded and used previous key code that was sent to me over a month ago. Currently I don't discover anything new but I'm searching.

I registered in the beta zone JUST to try the new BBM, I've been registered for a few months now, and every time I hear a report "BBM is in the beta zone for all you beta members", it's never there for me. I have not seen it once.

I installed this update out of Beta Zone and it doesn't look like there have been that many changes over 5.0.1.17. I ran through the UI and options only briefly, and I can't even be certain that the changes I noticed weren't there in the previous version. That said, it looks like they added the option to show your contacts music updates or not, and whether or not to share your "Location/Timezone" in the same way you previous showed what music you were listening to.

I haven't yet played around with any multimedia related BBM functions.

Really enjoyed 5.0.1.17 but since I started using 5.0.1.32 I like the interface a little bit more and it's quick too. Haven't had any issues or problems yet. So all is good right now!

5.0.1.32 got rid of all the dead space in the chat bubbles which was my major gripe... Still looking for more changes.

If you dont see it probably it wasn't sent to you. Have you emailed support at the beta zone? If it hasn't been sent to you then all you can do is wait.

Sorry Mate, it should be in the among the eligible programs but if it isnt there then i guess you cant download it. But no worries though, im sure it will soon be released to the general public... you are not missing much. cheers

This is what I got when I try one of the link by user Molski

*****Sorry, this program has reached its capacity*****

I guess we have to wait!

I liked the previous beta version, .17 I didn't experience any bugs so lets see what RIM has for us in this new version.

I tried to sign up for the Beta Zone and it kept saying something about password being 8 characters...But I changed it several times over. Any suggestions on how to sign up for it??? I Appreciate it...

In My Programs it says "You are not a participant in a current program.

Please Update Your Profile for us to find the program for you!"

Does this mean in order to download any program i would have to fill out the survey?

This finally showed up under my eligible programs but when I went to download it, it gave me some bs about having enough participants. epic fail.
