    Odd, since I can see animated avatars on Android in BBM. Works on mine.

    I tried another pic and its moving on my device but unsupported message still flashed so I wonder it would animate on my contacts devices or not.

    To quote BlackBerry:

    When attempting to use animated avatars in BlackBerry® Messenger, please keep the following requirements in mind:

    • Maximum file size: 32KB
    • Supported file types: GIF
    • Image must be in dimensions of a square, for example 30px x 30px, 40px x 40px, etc.
    • 30px x 30px minimum
    • 333px x 333px maximum
    • 100px is optimal

    Honestly, I've had problems downloading, saving, playing, transferring, sending, doing anything at all with gif files. It's like this OS doesn't support gifs. I'm hunting these forums for a solution, or someone to address it. Had this problem since the first 10.0 OS

    You can also use FlashDP.net to create custom animated display pictures for BBM. Test if it works for you.
