BlackBerry Messenger v5.0.3.13 now available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone


I have BBM 6.0 with me running on 9700/, so guys please suggest should I downgrade to this official beta or stick with BBM 6.0 ?? Help help !!

O yeah ! BBM6 i really would like to try it out :) do you know from where to get it ? any OTA links :D

Thank you !

What's new in BBM6? Does it have the features that RIM said they will include or is it just like bbm 5.0.1?

Its no good....mine was working til I upgraded to this new beta. Now bbm's just look like theyre trying to send.

My contacts keep disappearing after every reboot. I'm in part of the beta testing but issue hasn't been addressed in the forums. I hope this release can fix this though . . .

Probably not going to as it states only minor backend changes,

I installed BBM 6 the other day and cannot see any difference what confuses me is how this BBM 6 is out when betazone has a 5.0.3

No noticeable difference on this new BBM Beta... just as it says. They still didnt fix the highlight/select bug.

I don't get it ppl sayn they have bbm6. I have a BB running os6 and I'm running 5.0.1 and that was the latest update. Where are ppl getting bbm 6 from?

Like I earlier posted, I'm on bbm 6 and you could also try that out. Go through the link above posted by me and download it OTA. ENJOY !!

Do not waste your time downloading bbm 6 unless you are in the bbm beta program. There is no way to make it work unless you are one of the beta testers for bbm. As far as I know any way. I remember when it first leaked a lot of people deleted bbm 5 then installed the leak just to find out they need a key code to use it. So then they had to delete bbm 6 and reinstall bbm 5. Its kind of a waste of effort just to find out you can't use it.

If you want to use it you have to sign up at BlackBerry beta zone and hope you get selected to join the bbm program.

Also I do have bbm 6 and I do like it better than the latest bbm 5. But it isn't jump up and down amazing or anything. It only adds a few noticeable differences right now.

i tried it and the dl failed
it said its compatible to some file on my bb
idk wut it could b
will the key for the bbm work?


only thing i notice with bbm 6 why i didnt keep it was if i reboot all the contacts that were link to an address book contact would reset so i didnt even wait if that not an issuse den try it

I downloaded bbm 6 but for some reason I'm not getting notified when my contacts update their status. Anyone else having this issue?

ever since i dl the new beta bbm for some reason when i scroll up and down my bbm list now it laggy and before my bbm was working fine... anyone else having this issue?
