How to change BBM profile name

Somehow my BBM user profile name was corrupted -.

 

I can see the source of the display name but I have no idea when and how it was created.

 

As far as I can see there is only a getDisplayName() method which refers to the current user name.

 

Any idea when (i.e. event) name was created and how I can delete/change value the value.

 

Interestingly, my BBM contacts can edit the name on their devices.

Re: How to change BBM profile name

It's normal for your BBM contacts to be able to edit what your display name is on their devices.  But it'll only pertain to their device.

 

There is no API to programmatically modify your profile name.  You can edit it in the BBM Client by clicking on your profile shown at the top when you open BBM.

Re: How to change BBM profile name

Somehow I managed to get caret to end of name and delete  the garbage and then re-enter my name correctly.
