SERIOUS problem here! My 9300 still has OS 5 on it as I really dont like OS 6. Downloaded the new version of BBM and it has totally messed up the whole thing! It looks awful as if it's not compatible with os 5 and i can no longer scan a barcode as whenever i try to do so my phone freezes big time and the only way to get it going again is when i do a battery pull!! This is extremely frustrating for me. I need to know if I can get back bbm version 5 downloaded to get things back to normal on the device because i cant find it anywhere for download. Anyone have any links for that? Im really disappointed in how blackberry operates right now because of all of this. Smiley Sad

Re: BBM 6


you cannot replace BBm6 by BBm5.
but you can install BBm5 again using the Desktop Manager/Application Loader.
Just install OS5 for your 9300 on your PC first.
