    Hi, not knowing there was an outage yesterday, I had uninstalled BBM and today re-installed the application, and upgraded to the .57 version....I restored my contact list, but am unable to see my contacts' display pictures. They are able to see mine, but I can't. Any suggestions?

    Maybe it'll just take some time. One persons picture showed up on my bbm so far.

    I did reboot mine, but nothing happened. It seems when people are changing their pictures then they show up, but if they don't then they won't.

    looks to be a common problem...mine seems to be fine but my friend's vzw bb with .57 has this issue for some reason.

    3. Asked my contact to delete me and add me again
    4. changed my photo

    not sure what else can i do

    I've had the same issue - I can see my contacts photo id, and I can see MY photo in bbm, but my contacts can't see mine...

    I got a new phone and re-downloaded bbm (the 5.0 version) and they STILL can't see my picture??? (my picture didn't show up on my old phone either!)

    ANY SUGGESTIONS! I really don't want to go to the store AGAIN!

    Now I have T-mobile Sim Blackberry Prepaid,
    Everything is Working accept, I don't See my Contact Pictures !!
    Only If they update there Display picture I Can see them.
    But They Can't see Mine.

    I have tried, battery pull, I have tried to install again, I have tried to erase
    I have tried servicebook installations, I have tried register blackberry again

    If I want to Back up files remotely in BBM messenger I Get this

    Please try again later, You are currently being registered with the Blackberry
    Messenger Service. This is an automatic process that will complete in a few

    I Have this for 2days if i try it

    What is the problem, Please SOLUTION PLEASE

    So many People have this Issue
    Is it an HARDWARE or is it an SOFTWARE Error ?

    the have internet right ? they have also a computer to look up this forums right?

    but the be silent reading, and the come with no solution
