While some folks in North America can't even send or recieve messages via BlackBerry Messenger, Research In Motion has decided to put out a new release. Version 188.8.131.52 is now available via the BlackBerry Messenger download site. Again, just a maintenance release with no huge changes expected to be in it. In any event, grab the new update. Hard to say if it will actually fix the issues we are currently seeing now but if it seems to help let us know in the comments folks.
