Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

Blackberry Pearl 8120 

 

The BBM icon has disappeared from my device.   BBM still shows up on the list of applications.  The ICON does NOT show up when all icons are shown, and is not hidden.  BBM is not running in the list of running applications.   Many support board posts indicate to download and re-install the application.   I have had problems with newer versions of BBM, and would like to re-install THIS version, because I know it works.  

 

Where can I get the download link for version 5.0.0.57 of BBM?

Please use plain text.

I don't know where you can get that 5.0.0.57 version.

 

Are you SURE you've looked in ALL folders, Download, Applicatons, Instant Mesages, etc.?

 

The only download link I know of (other than AppWorld) is www.blackberry.com/messenger

 

Good luck.

Re: Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

ok, good.

 

Can you give a friend who has a BlackBerry your PIN (on your device, found at Options > Status) and let them send you a BBMessenger invite, using that PIN?

 

If so, let them do so, and see if you get a blue BBM logo notification at the top of the homescreen on the device.

Didn't work.

 

I got a PIN email with the invitation, but BBM didn't pick it up because BBM isn't running.... How do I get it running?

Re: Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

The link is only for the new version which doesn't work on this blackberry. Hence the question for the link for version 5.0.0.57.

Re: Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

The links provided earlier on and via Blackberry App World should provide the version of BBM required for your device, but if not...

 

Have you tried a hard reset to see if this solves your problem? Remove the battery while the BB is on, wait 30 seconds and then put the battery back in.

 

If that doesnt work, have you done a backup of any important data and then done a security wipe of the device to restore it back to factory default to see if that restores the icon?
