    i know somone one who says she is in France but her country flag says Germany (Berlin Amsterdam). Is she a F$%^$ liar or what? or is this possible? This person is known to be a major liar.

    It is possible to add any country flag one wants to BBM user names. http://forums.crackberry.com/native-...gs-bbm-350840/

    I have a friend who has flags for the US and Spain in his display name.

    It is possible for a user to change his/her profile to anything he/she wants. I have several friends who like to change their profiles on a regular basis. Some of them even change their names.

    the location part of the profile. you can add whatever you want to your name part- like stupid "eyelashes" or an ugly moroccan photo.

    Not really sure what you're talking about. In Blackberry Messenger you can change your Display Name to be anything you want. That's what your BBM contacts see.

    The OP is right.
    If you enable your location to be shared on BBM, then the Location field is set automatically by BBM and cant be changed to show what you want to.
    He is not talking about the BBM status.

    Right there is a option to share your location.
    Iam not sure if you change your time it might change the flag too.

    Just saying because france and germany share the same timezone.And you actually set your time by country/city and not by timezone ... so you could chose germany and still have france time.

    Right on that. Didnt notice that it was Location/Timezone, so yea someone in France could be shown as being in Germany. And if it is picking up location from Cell Towers, then someone near the French-German border would be shown as being in either country.
    This could have been of great help to the French during the Second World War .
