    5.08? Already? Wow! A lot's happened eversince I jumped ship. I never liked the update to begin with I hated having to accept or download a pic. I loved being able to view th pic before or even having o download it. I hope this has changed. Good luck dude. Have you tried to delete the bbm version you have and insall the stock version thru DM?

    Dude 5.0.8 is obsolete now. They have official 5.0.33 or better on app world. I havent seen It in a while.

    The app has a glitch. Once you go over 100 contacts or so, you may see delayed updates to your display picture, display name, or status message. I had almost 200 contacts and I started to clean it up one week at a time (depending on who was a regular chat buddy), and once I got to 90, I realized everything started updating immediately.

    You info will update if you keep a lot of contacts but there will be a 24-72 hour lag before it does. I don't know why this happens but if you google the problem, many others have the same problem (and they all report the same solution).

    However, this does not affect the other functions of your phone so I guess you have to weigh your options (Contacts vs. Freedom to update your pic/display names like a twitter account haha).

    Hope this helps!
