The day before yesterday, my wife and I both changed our display picture to a GIF file (size about 25kb - 30kb). This was late in the evening and we didn't use BBM that day.
The next morning BBM stopped receiving and sending messages and we would see a red clock beside every message we tried to send. Anyone else trying to send us a message would also see a red clock.
BBM started working normally again in the evening only after we changed our disolay pictures to a JPG file. It was working normally too when I was using a small sized GIF picture of about 8kb.
The developers should have a look at this.
