Black Berry Messenger 5.0 officially available for all BlackBerry models!
Black Berry Messenger 5.0 is no longer beta, its now publically available via Black Berry App World. The version is 5.00.33, most people I know were using the pre-release beta version 184.108.40.206 which did not work on Bellus blackberries, many compaints were their contact list erasing or the program was getting deleted off their handheld when they ran the pre-release OTA install link,
Some things I've noticed new in the final release of 5.0, no more ability to see when a contact is talking on the phone? (was in the pre-release, but they took it out for some reason?) this is a good feature because people will im you but if you are on the phone they will see the notice so they wont get mad at you for not replying right away, since you could talk for quite a lengthy time in some cases. and most people dont checkl their pins when they are on a phone call.
another is the ability to detect someones location, its been removed in the final release of bbm 5. i turned it off in the pre release cus i dun wan no one to find out where i am. thirdly, the bar codes are still there, which is cool, and the ability to save my contact list offline on a server or download it to my memory stick is also cool, it was available in the beta as well.
Thanks, take care ,and ttyl!
