    Yes, although I have a 9650, my pics are not updating at all. I upgraded my OS and have no avatars. It's not us. It's gotta be the servers.

    I just received a message from a family member informing me of this, but in the form of a chain message:

    "Dear BlackBerry users, we are going to do a update for bbm from 11pm till 5am this to day (yes, this to day). If you don't send this to all of your contacts your update will be canceled and you will not be allowed to chat with your contacts as you have the old version. Reset code for your picture to start changing 393928281717. Post to all contacts to update your software."

    I figured it was a bunch of crap and told my cousin to quit sending it. I haven't change my photo nor do I wish to, but I do have contacts who have images of Bugs Bunny to Daria as their profile pic. I'm with @jaydee5799 on this one when I point my finger at the servers.

    i received the same broadcast a million times. a friend said she sent the broadcast and her pictures got bigger?

    is this message true? because my contacts aren't seeing my pic change and i cant see theirs change either

    Message is pure garbage, you dont need to send anything to anyone. They are obviously having server-side problems or updating the server/database/code/whatevah.

    I upgraded yesterday and all my BBM avys were missing. During the night, they popped back in. Just server troubles.
    Wait it out. It will improve.

    And the SPAM is garbage. Delete it. It's all nonsense. Nothing about it is true.

    From my memory it did this before a previous BBM client side software update, i can't remember which one.

    Maybe a new version is on the way.

    I had this on my Torch from yesterday evening until now.

    I went to change my BBM avatar. A little bit later a contact told me I had no avatar, but I can see my new one in my Profile.

    Really strange part: I have myself as a contact in BBM. When I look at that contact, it still has my old BBM avatar.

    Not the end of the world, but hopefully it works itself out soon.

    Took 16 hours for my BBM avatars to pop in after I wiped and reloaded an OS.
    Have patience! It will work...eventually.

    Still not working here. Using Tour 9650 with latest BBM version and BES server, could that have anything to do with it ????

    Yep......went from my 9700 back to my 9800, and no BBM contact pics. It has been about 13hrs. so far. But there are tons of threads on this, definate BBM server issue I think.
