Fixed issues

This section lists fixed issues for Windows Live™ Messenger for BlackBerry® devices 2.5.
If you received a message from a person not on your contact list, if you responded to the message, a new conversation was started. After reading a new message from a contact, the new message indicator might have remained on your device, and the LED indicator might have continued
to blink. If you have a device with BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 or later, you might not have been able to see messages that you typed in the conversation field.
If you took a picture in the Camera application, you might not have been able to send the picture to a contact using the menu on the preview screen. Invitation requests might not have displayed on your device until after you signed out and signed back in. If you highlighted a contact, "No Name" appeared in menu items such as Email <contact's name> instead of the contact's name. If you opened the menu on the contact list screen, the My Info option appeared twice. If you linked a contact with the Contacts application, there was no menu option to remove the link. In some cases, the application stopped responding after you signed in.

Known issues
