    Go into BBM, hit the BB button, options, scroll down to display pictures, and check the box to replace caller ID pics with display pictures

    I did what you said drknobs and it didn't fix the problem. But wouldn't checking that box just remove their display pic and put the one I have assigned to their called I'd? because if that's the case I don't want that, I don't have pics saved to their called ids. I even added myself as a contact on bbm. And I can't even see my own display pic in my contacts list.

    Your contacts have to edit their own pictures on their BBM and you edit your own. Make sense? You can't edit their pics on your messenger.

    There is something going on with Blackberry Messenger Service. My pictures are not getting updated and I cannot back-up to an email address.

    I'm not saying you can edit their pics. The way I see the option is this:

    • Without that box checked, and no pic installed for that contact on your phone, you get the blueman icon.


    • If you add a pic to represent that contact, it'll show up in place of the blueman icon.


    • If that contact has associated a pic of their own choice to represent themselves, then checking that box will allow you to see the pic that they have chosen for their representation.

    I have this problem as well.

    8330m from Sprint.

    On older version of BBM the pictures display fine, however on 5.0.0.33 (maybe even one version older than this) or whatever the newest one is the pictures no longer display.

    I remember the first BBM 5.0 I installed worked, the updates from then after displayed no pictures.

    Okay. I understand what you're saying. All of my bbm contacts have edited their blueman pics so they are showing up as what they've chosen. My box is unchecked.
    And it could very well be that their server is jacked up.

    I wasn't sure which way it might work, just noticed the option for display pics in the bbm options. Altho the way its worded, unchecked it should show what you chose for them; checked it should show what they chose.

    Also, when they change their avatar it sends you an update notifying you.

    Just an fyi if you didn't already know.

    Didn't know that. The only bbm contact I have is an EX-best friend I no longer associate with.

    But now I know!

    I don't have display pictures either, I've tried rebooting, reinstalling bbm 5.0.0.33 and ticking the display pictures box in options (to replace id pictures) can anyone confirm this is a server problem or software problem? Thx

    Same Over Here !!

    I have Blackberry Bold 9700, Official Carrier was Vodafone, and is Simlock Free
    Now I have T-mobile Sim Blackberry Prepaid,
    Everything is Working accept, I don't See my Contact Pictures !!
    Only If they update there Display picture I Can see them.
    But They Can't see Mine.

    I have tried, battery pull, I have tried to install again, I have tried to erase
    I have tried servicebook installations, I have tried register blackberry again

    If I want to ´´Back up files remotely´´ in BBM messenger I Get this

    Please try again later, You are currently being registered with the Blackberry
    Messenger Service. This is an automatic process that will complete in a few
    minutes.

    (strange because I already use the bbm messenger, and it works fine, except for the display issues !! )

    I Have this for 2days if i try it


    I SEE MOST OF THE T-MOBILE USERS HAVE THIS ISSUE
    VODAFONE I DONT SEE




    What is the problem, Please SOLUTION PLEASE

    So many People have this Issue
    Is it an HARDWARE or is it an SOFTWARE Error ?

    Why does RIM not REACT on this issues,
    the have internet right ? they have also a computer to look up this forums right?

    but the be silent reading, and the come with no solution
