    Is there anyway to remove the Avatar of my contacts on the Blackberry Messenger???

    To just have them show up without pictures.

    Let's just say I don't want some pictures of some people to be seen

    You could use a generic picture. Just make sure they are in your contacts, add whatever pic you like for them, then in bbm under their profile choose to use their blackberry contacts image.

    edavies I did not get that.


    I have all my contacts in my messenger right.
    Most of them have their pictures with their name.
    Say you are in my contact list and I want to remove your pictures so nothing shows up.

    How do I do this?

    I'm just going to go out an say this clear:

    I don't want my girlfriend to see some girls I have added to my messenger.
    Just change their name in the messenger but the picture I need to remove.

    I hope I don't get lynched.
    Sorry girls!!!!

    You need to actually create a contact for those girls in your address book. For

    If you have "Tina" as a BBM buddy, create a contact for her in your address book.
    Now that Tina has a contact in your address book, select her in BBM, hit menu
    and select "Link to blackberry contact" and link Tina to the address book contact
    you just created.

    Now this is where what edavies19 recommendation comes into play. On Tina's
    address book contact, use whatever photo you'd like. Now go to her BBM profile
    and check the "Use caller ID" option so now her BBM pic is whatever you set her
    address book contact to.

    Good luck and please use protection.

    Small mistake. When you go to her BBM profile the option is called "Use Blackberry
    Contacts Image." You're going to set that to "Yes"

    Why is your girlfriend allowed to see/use your BB. I don't let my wife touch the crack.

    Seems like a lot of work to satisfy a jealous girlfriend.
