    Recently i have tried to put a gif as my bbm pic (avatar) and it shows as a still picture. ive tried many other gifs on the internet but none have worked. My friends have been able to display a gif as their profile pic and it is animated, but mine seems to not work.
    This is what I did:
    I went on the internet
    Saved a gif
    Went on bbm, changed my profile pic.
    It says "This format is not supported for cropping"
    The message disappears, i click the "set" button on the top right corner
    I check if the picture is moving and it is not.
    i ask friends and they say they cant see it moving either..

    i am using a gif, it even shows it animated when I am on the "cropping" page.
    Please help ?

    Also heres the gif im trying to put as my bbm pic: http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20..._d-d3705hk.gif

    I've had the same problem apparently the gif has to be under 32kb and the exact size of the Square in BBM.

    Use the app in BlackBerry World Called motion avatars for BBM, it works great.

    As per this, it has to be square and less than 32 kb

    Is there an app in bb world with less than 32kb gifs ?

    I'm pretty sure there is website for BlackBerry gift you can find a ton of them.

    Sorry can't remember the website but I'm sure a quick Google search will reveal something.
