My Blackberry Messenger is not letting my photo be shown...

My Blackberry Messenger is not letting my photo be shown and it is not showing my fellow 5.0 Blackberry Messenger's photos either. I've tried deleting and reinstalling the BBM messenger app, and it is still not working how it should be. I'm wondering if this can be a quick fix or if I should send in my phone for a new one.
