    This seems like a bug with BBM at the moment. I wouldn't be much concerned with it, I would still be glad that BBM worked.

    Have you tried a battery pull to see if things changed?

    Could be, I have ever changing BBM profile pics for mine.

    Andrewall I'm happy to say, your not the only one going thru this same problem. I have OS 5 for the 9700, and I have been going thru this problem for 2 weeks. I even spoke to my carrier rep & a RIM rep. And their only suggestion was that it's a BBM issue that will have to get resolved. (Something that I didn't want to hear, because the problem still exist) I did the reset so many times I lost count. I uninstalled & reinstalled BBM version 5.0.1.41 & even uninstalled facebook & reinstalled it. Still the problem exist. Slowly, I'm beginning to hear more & more ppl having issues. I wanted to downgrade to BBM version 5.0.1.38, but can't find it. After reading your post, I'm not going to bother uninstalling & reinstalling my OS. As long as I can BBM, change my messages & status. I will be jealous over those who can change their pics until the issue is resolved.

    yep...from my own personal experience with this bug (picture will not update on others or it will display a different img than what u actually select - at their end)

    by using the included ver, this happened.
    by installing and replacing over top, this happened.
    by actually removing BBM off the phone and reinstalling, it seems to have fixed the problem.

    just an FYI to the others that have run into this.

    It looks like the problem is a glitch. I had the problem and blamed my Blackberry. Open your BBM and go to options, were it says Replace Blackberry Contact Pictures With Blackberry Messenger Pictures make sure that is unchecked, save and it will work again.

    I'm having the same problem as well and this has been an issue for me for almost 2 weeks. I've done everything from battery pulls, updating BBM, deleting and reinstalling BBM, updating my OS and nothing seems to help. The only time I can change my display pic is when I uninstall/reinstall BBM.

    My status updates work fine but not my display pic updates. I can see other contacts updating their pics multiple times so I can't understand why mine won't change.

    While I understand that this isn't the end of the world, it's still pretty annoying. Hopefully this glitch is remedied quickly.

    Btw, I'm using a T-Mobile Curve 8900, running OS v5.0.0.900 and BBM 5.0.1.41

    Weird, I just read this thread and was thinking to myself, I don't have this issue...but as I was curious, I went to check and low and behold, my pic wasn't up there...I was like WTF!

    Ened up picking another pic and it loaded up fine, but I don't understand why I didn't have a pic up as yesterday I did.

    So strange...least mine worked. Must be the version of BBM? Seems to be happening on various OS's...hummm...

    I have this problem too and not bothered by it, I mean who cares really? IF you see the pic well and good, if not, well, you know who you're talking to right?

    I think it's a temporary BBM issue and the pics shall appear soon give it a few days, it always works itself out.

    I this only for those that have the OS 6? I have OS 5. This morning it appearred that the situation was corrected, but when I attempted to change my display for the 3rd time, my profile display would not change. What a bummer.

    Ya, I'm running OS6, but at the same time its hard to say if my method has even worked for the long term as I have no way of knowing what my pic actually shows unless I ask a contact what it is....also last night, I had happen for the first time where my pic actually changed on its own to blank.

    I called TMobile twice, and finally got connected to a RIM rep, who still couldn't tell me what the problem was, other than tell me give RIM time to fix the problem. At the time, there was others complaining about the problem. This was over two weeks ago, WTF
