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.


 

Hence my answer to your question.. .that 5.0.0.57 is no longer available.

And the latest version 5.0.1.41 does work on your device.

 

Why do you think it does not?

Re: Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

It is my belief that the newer version does not work because I had it installed on my previous device (8110) and it resulted in a memory leak, then caused a recursive JVM error. I sent my phone away to fix the JVM error and I was told not to install a newer version of BBM.

Re: Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

Oh.

 

You said earlier it "would not work", but instead it's just a belief.

Two different things.

 

So, there's not a link to the older version and this is the version that is available to you. There's no reason it won't work on your device. There's no different memory leak than any other version.

 

And just for future reference, you don't need to send a device away due to a Java error. Those can be resolved on your own with proper instructions.

 

Anyway, load .46, you'll be fine.

Re: Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

But it crashed my phone twice and I got a letter saying that the 8100 series does not support the newest version of BBM. So I'm hesitant to download that version.

A letter from who?

 

Really, I'm trying to help here and trying to understand what you know. I have not heard or read anywhere that certain version of BlackBerry Messenger are not compatible with the 81xx devices. I know the 81xx devices are getting sorta older, but this BBM software is built with backwards compatibility.

 

Otherwise, no, again, I don't know of any download links for theolder version.

 

If you have a backup of your device and/or applications on your PC, you might have it already and don't know it. Do you?

Re: Download Link for Blackberry Messenger version 5.0.0.57?

Sorry, I should have mentioned who in my previous post. When I sent my phone away to get it fixed it was returned with a letter that said that the newest versions of BBM were not compatible... It confused me because all the websites say it should work... So initially I ignored this, which is when my phone crashed the second time.

That still doesn't tell me who... your service provider, RIM itself, or Big Bob's Phone Repair and Massage Parlor? Smiley Very Happy

 

Anyway, good luck finding .57, I don't know where you will find it. You may already have it on your PC, like I said.
