BlackBerry Messenger 5.08
I’ve been getting some emails and BBM messages asking where the links where, they are still up, I had to move some of the files around on my server so some of the old links may not be valid, but here are the updated links plus a few more versions that have been floating around for some of the new 5.0 OSs. At first there where alot of bad reports but all versions seem to be working great after RIM switched on all the features. If your worried about losing your contacts, here’s a great tip from one of the commenter’s, not sure if it works but it’s worth the try.
After the installation finishes, don’t select “Reboot Device” Select No or whatever the other option is, back out to your homescreen, the reboot the handheld manually by either a battery pull, or quick pull or some other third party app. *Tip: hold left alt, right shift and del at the same time for a couple of seconds to reboot also.*
This has apparently been a workaround for losing your contacts, let me know in comments below if it works for you.
