    Read somewhere that RIM was doing some upgrades to bbm and that's why pictures won't update, can't find that info now though... Guess we'll wait and see

    Mine's doing the same thing. Except in my group chats, my updates show the correct photo along with other contacts' correct changes.

    Haven't wiped mine yet and I don't plan to. Not a big urgency but it is quite annoying.

    Anyone find a solution yet?

    I have v5.0.0.57 been having this problem for about 3 weeks now. I read that it most likely means RIM is doing some upgrades to BBM. I think it may have to do with Sprint's Blackberry Torch release on August 12th, which is running OS 6 even though I have Verizon.

    I am on Sprint using a Tour, had .66 installed fine for a while and a few weeks ago I started having pic update issues. Deleted and went back to official .57 and it worked for a few minutes and then back to the same problems.

    My buddy on ATT is not having these issues and my Wifes Pearl on Sprint doesn't have these problems either. It is very Annoying.

    People who are having these problems appear to be random... It's not one carrier or one phone... I'm actually on the line with a Blackberry tech guy trying to resolve the deleting myself off of other ppl's bbm issue and he said that RIM is working on it and less and less people are having the issue... but it's moving wayyy too slow... People can call Blackberry directly at 1-877-255-2377...

    Hey guys! mine started working again after almost a month!!!

    I downloaded the new bbm to the official v5.0.1.38 and 2 of 59 of my contacts pics had updated. Then I downloaded the desktop manager 6, hooked my bb up to the laptop and deleted some language packs that I don't use.

    I'm not sure if either of these contributed to it working again or RIM fixed itself but it's worth a try.

    Yes mine started magically working again as well after a few weeks of no picture updates. Downloaded the new BBM and it is working fine as well.
