Blackberry Messenger problems

I have just uploaded my blackberry messenger contacts onto my new bold 9780. however I cannot see any of my friends profile pictures and they are not able to see mine. I am using the newest version of blackberry messenger (5.0.1.41). Can anyone help me with this?

 

Thanks

did you encrypt your contacts?  When i Encrypted mine, i was not able to use the voice dialing when phone was locked and my apps that used my contacts could not view them or they were not complete.

 

Also i checked my messenger and i noted that i had some contacts that were not linked to my blackberry contacts [option key {link to blackberry contact}]  i hope that is not the problem or that someone knows how to stream line it for you

Re: Blackberry Messenger problems

I really want to help but most unfortunately my skill set has been exhausted... Since this is my first blackberry, I only have one friend on my BB messenger, and I have a pic for that friend in my contacts, but as you both have stated, it was not in my BB messenger contact, so I tinkered around and noted that the BB messenger contact had an option to "link to Contact" I selected that and then located the contact and then his picture was on the BBM contact.  Now as to why your friends can't see your picture, I have not determined how that could be either... Maybe their contact for you has a different PIN, or they have not updated your new PIN, and linked it to their contacts.

 

I sincerely hope this helps :smileyhappy:

Re: Blackberry Messenger problems

Hi. Can anyone tell me where on the torch 9800 I can set a tone for peoples status updates. I get the updates but no noise to tell me. All my friends have a sound set so u know one has been changed. I've been through the settings but I only see the sound to change when getting a message but not for status updates. Is this possible on the torch. My 8520 did it. Thanks

Re: Blackberry Messenger problems

Hey guys!I m using the BB 9300. I recently had to format my phone as my phone software got corrupted. Post formatting the phone got reset to factory settings. As a result the BB messenger on the phone was reset to version 5.0.2. When I tried to update the BBM through BB world the only update available is version 7 which is not supported by my phone. Thee latest version supported by my device is version 6 which is unavailable in BB world. Glad if u guys could provide me some help so as to update my BBM to version 6. Thanks.
