BlackBerry Messenger v6.0.0.129 now available for download


I cared nothing for what anyone was listening to. What I hope is fixed is the sluggish scrolling and invisible messages in groups.

Half the time i dont even have a notification for a new BBM. Hopefully this is resolved. Another Question. Does anyone know if the Bold 9900 has wifi hotspot capability?

Does it come off as worrisome to anyone else that RIM seems to constantly be retracing footsteps trying to sure-up issues that shouldn't even have been in updates to begin with?!

Could some of you seriously just SHUT UP and switch if you wanna ! who doesn't release software fixes and hot fixes etc !!! always complaining RIM THIS RIM THAT ! WE ALL want them to improve.

I can't install it. If I go to my Appworld, it says 125. If I go to, it's still 125.

When I click the link from this post using my blackberry brwoser, it says status waiting... Unsupported Operating System

Try to reset Appworld.

Open appworld
Hold ALT
then Press R S T

appworld will close and when you reopen it, it should look for the updates.

I maybe wrong but I think that currently only people using BlackBerry App World 3.0 (beta) are seeing the download.

I didn't see it but now with App World 3 (beta) I do, just a thought

me too here, checked the app world, this morning, still showing .125, but recently this afternoon i eventually got the update notification from my appworld for the .129 build and i've installed it.

Got the update, I'm using App World 3.0 and you just refresh the list and it popped right up. BUT..... WTF they didn't fix the picture sharing issue! Still can't send any pic over 60k. Come on!

1st and 2nd tries ended in an installation failures.

Reset and attempt #3 in progress...

edit: Looks like third time was the charm.

I am impressed at the new version.. Includes "Show what I am listening" once-again back and they have fixed the "STATUS UPDATE" finally I impressed RIM have sorted out the issue..

With any luck the masses will be happy now, there's a lot of tears and sniffles on the app world reviews. Personally I think it's only imortant to me what I'm listening to, not to anyone else. Nice to have the option I guess.

can we then expect that the restrictions RIM placed on attached pics and other changes to bbm will continue in OS7 with the new devices? if so, tbat would suck huge!

Is it just me or is the "PICTURE LIBRARY" folder missing when you try to change your display picture??? WTF

Is it just me or is the "PICTURE LIBRARY" folder missing when you try to change your display picture??? WTF

I just upgraded my bbm to and I av app world installed on my bb...
Now I can see wat peeps are listening to...
Nyc job RIM

Even tho some ppl don't care about it and some ppl do but its good to have the "show what I'm listening to" option back it make bbm what it is and with a whole lot of nee features.. Good to have it tho sometimes your friends might me listening to a song that you don't know and u can write it down and listen to it yourself.. Its almost like media sharing

Its only available on AppWorld 3.0. And if you have problems pasting the keycode just hold the trackpad down for 2secs & paste that way. The scrolling still isn't working properly when looking at messages, but other than that I haven't seen any issues w/ .129 . Enjoy ppls :)

Sadly this update doesn't fix the disappearing BBM group bug that happens from sometimes updating to another version. Now I'm locked out of a group I created that no one can add me to since I'm the admin... Womp womp.

I've had that happen to me in the past and I just got an invite from one of the members for my group and it set me back to admin after I re-joined it. Hopefully you didn't set it so that only the admin can invite others to the group ;-)

Does anyone know why the comment field is chopped off when you are sending a picture? I ve tried to scroll up and down, but no luck. Can't see what I'm typing. Any help out there?

Updated my 9780 and people weren't receiving my messages, hence downgraded, anyone else having problems, funny thing is had no problems with previous...

Also I noticed, although I updated, I still have version 125 listed rather than 129. I tried uninstalling and re-installing too.
