    Has anyone noticed that you can't change the profile picture with the latest version? In the previous 5.0's there was a way to change the profile picture but now I can't seem to find the option. Not that I don't mind seeing the pictures that my friends have choosen but I prefer to see their faces opposed to their pet's face. (Not that I'm not an animal lover) If anyone out there has a suggestion on how to correct this I would appreciate your opinions.

    Not on the latest version. When you hit the picture it just opens it up and then when you hit the BB button it doesn't give you a command to switch it to the contact picture you have in your address book.

    On my S2 on 428 OS all I have to do is tap the profile pic to change it.

    Right in the BBM profile of the person (not the pic of them) is an option for Display Pictures, it says Use Blacberry Contact Image, yes or no.

    ridesno159 before the last update I did have that option. But with the latest one that just dropped that option is no longer available. I went options and unchecked "Replace Caller ID pictures with Display Pictures" and that still hasn't fixed the problem.

    Have you downloaded the new blackberry messenger? if so, thats the problem. Blackberry is having some serious issues with the latest update.

    What version do you have? Is it 5.0.0.57? If it is I would delete BBM (back up contacts first in BBM if you haven't yet) and re-install it. www.blackberry.com/messenger. I have the option to change the pic to a contact pic in both the profile of the contact and the options of BBM (both work), so there has to be some kind of problem with yours.
