    It'd be great to use the profile pics from the contact app instead of the BBM profile pics of my BBM contacts. I have linked the contact and the BBM profile in the contact app, but there is no profile picture shown (even for those BBM contacts who do not have a BBM picture at all).
    Do I make some mistake or is this not supported?

    Thanks!

    I tried what you stated, to change the BBM profile pic to the Contact pic, and it'll change but for someone reason doesn't save.
    When I open BBM again it's the original BBM pic and not the Contact pic.
    So I don't think the issue is with your phone.
    I'm on Q10 10.2.0.1791 with Channels Beta installed not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    As far as I know that setting was part of BBM on legacy OS and hasn't (yet) been included in BB10.

    If you have your contacts linked in the contacts app then you will be able to choose the DP for that contact for the contacts app, has no effect on BBM or BBM DP though.

    I've been complaining about this since June. Absolute idiocy of BlackBerry not to include this.

    OK, then it seems to be a "missing" feature (that has already been working on OS6/7) - and it's not a user fault by me ;-)
    Maybe/Hopefully this function will return in a future version...

    I hardly use BBM because none of my friends are on BBM so I've never noticed this. Had a friend to download BBM on her iphone lately and have noticed that this feature is still not implemented!
