I took a picture which I sent through IM. Now I am trying to delete that picture and it won't let me as it says the file is in use. The IM chat has ended and has since been deleted but I still can't delete that picture. What do I do? I can delete all my other pictures; just not that one.

I've tried every which way to delete that picture, from the picture itself and also from the thumbnail. I took a few more pictures just to see if I could delete them, and no problem. It's just that picture that I sent through IM. For some reason, BB thinks it is open or in use and I think if I can figure that out, then I can delete it.

I figured it out. You might not like doing this, but if you want to get the pic off your bb, you will need to. Turn the phone off, pull the battery out for like 30 seconds. When you power it back up, it won't be in use and you can erase. I just did it and it worked for me. Not sure if there is an easier way, but this will get it done.

This is a issue that I have had problems with as well. After trying all of the things mentioned above, I still couldn't delete pictures. with the back off of my bb, I found that while in the picture folder if i slid my memory card out (I got the messages about no memory card etc) and then going back to my home screen and then sliding the memory card back in. After doing this, i was able to then go in and delete my "undeleteable" pics !
