    Yes, as long as he has the 5.0.0.190 loaded on his PC, so that DM will recognize it. If he doesn't, then it will downgrade your OS to whatever his is. If he does not have a Bold, then you will have to download a Bold OS, but he can remove it in the control panel, once you have added the bbm from it.

    Ok. Try this.

    remove any installed BBM of the phone first then reboot, then ota install BBM again from this page

    To check and see if the bbm is in your applications, go to options/applications/choose add-on up top and check to see if you see blackberry messenger. If it is showing highlight it and click menu and delete. It may be there because you tried to download that ota link, but not working.

    Did you find it in applications? If so, when you delete it, it may ask if you want to reboot, hit yes.. You will not lose anything except the bbm that you don't want on there. It is ok to reboot your BB, it is recommended that you reboot often to keep it running smoothly. You can pull the battery, or you can use alt,shift, del all at once. That is the one I use.

    Let's try the ota link first and use your friend as a last resort. Does your friend have a Bold? I will help with that if this doesn't work out.

    Well let's try the ota for now. Reboot your Bold, by pulling the battery and putting it back in or by holding the alt,shift and del, then let go. Let me know when it boots back up.
