    Ok so I had the new BBM for a while now... been through a ton of updates with it! currently have the 5.0.0.57... have had that one since the last update date!


    so i have tried numerous times to get all my display picutres to show and or update... i have whiped and reloaded the .57version @ least 10x's...
    instead of backing up and restoring my contacts i have just entered them in manually with hopes to get it normal again!
    i also have enve whiped and re-loaded my OS in hopes to make it better...

    how do I get this to work normal again?
    tyring to get the AVATARS working normal....

    i did everything u did jaybird until my last post ... i was told it might be rims side of things and to just wait it out. when we woke up this morning to head to work, i took a look at her phone and everyone's display pic was there. i think u should just stop doing all that jaz with it and just wait it out like we did. check back in a day or two to give us the update.
