New Version Bbm sucks!

Hi Can someone please help! I want my old bbm back? The new one is just not working, I don't like the set up and its extremely slow! Something I never had any problems with before.

Delete your current BBM from your Options > Device > Applications (or Options > Device > Advanced > Applications).

 

Then, using your BlackBerry browser, navigate to http://www.theiexplorers.com/OTA/

 

Scroll down and select the BBM v7 for your device according to the OS version in installed on your 9790

Re: New Version Bbm sucks!

I have seen the link. And thanx for that. Was just wondering why it can't be available on bb world. Still. Don't like the new version. If we must upgrade, why not make the upgrade compatable to ALL bbm users and bb's.

Re: New Version Bbm sucks!

Two options would be great on BlackBerry world. Old Bbm. New Bbm. Just saying. But thanks for your help.
