Messaging problems after 5.0 upgrade 8350i

After doing the upgrade i been having troubles with blank sent messages and not receiving messages for over 4 hours after the sender sent them. Then i get all messages at on time sometimes up to 6 or 7 messages , i can send them but not receive . Also i get this "uncaught exception : ApplicationRegistry.waitfor(0x9850447e783b0596) timeout " ever since the upgrade also usually after connecting to dtm or removing the battery . Service provider told me to go back to the original 4.6 version that the device came with, where do i find the 4.6 software ? Or does anyone have any suggestions to fix the 5.0 version ?

you need to downgrade back down to the 4.6.1.313 version go to this link and follow the instructions

 

go to google and google "nextel software downloads" click on the following:

I just updated/upgraded my BB 8330 and I HATE 5.0, I want my 4.5 back. Memory stinks and my app world lost all my uninstalled apps... where did they go? I want my memory back.

Re: Messaging problems after 5.0 upgrade 8350i

I went back to the 4.7 version of desktop manager that came with my phone, because i also had the same problem with my apps after the upgrade to 5.0 and the new desktop version. In the 4.7 i could goto add/remove apps and there i found  my missing apps and could put them back on my phone, i dont know if this helps you or not but thats what i had to do. " good luck "

Re: Messaging problems after 5.0 upgrade 8350i

Hi Tom... I'm just glad I'm not the only one. I may just do it this weekend. I find myself constantly checking my memory.

Someone mentioned a Hybrid for the 5.0 but the process seems very involved.

Thanks Again...glad to finally hear from someone.

Re: Messaging problems after 5.0 upgrade 8350i

Hi everyone I just joined and was checking things out and seen this issue. I've had my 8350i for 7 months now when I first got it I started fresh with OS 4.6 and Combined serviicebooks from Crackberry and ONLY the first 24 hours had issues with  messaging from then on all was great receive within 60 to 90 second then 12 days ago updated to OS 5.0 and did the same thing the first 24 hours messaging issues and now everything has been great.

The only Cons is reboots take forever other than that I like OS 5.0...
