Re: BBM does not show profile pics of my contacts

Hi siddheshveer



 Those Updates depends on Server you can't do much.But you can try re-installing BlackBerry Messenger to see if it help. first do a backup0 of your BBM contacts locally , for help refer to this KB :


 KB20554 How to back up and restore the BlackBerry Messenger contact list


Once you're done, first On your Homescreen Go to Options > Device Application Management > Locate and delete BlackBerry Messenger from there. After deleting do a Battery Pull Restart like this device POWERED ON remove the battery wait a min. then re-insert it back .


After reboot from your BlackBerry Browser browse to  http://mobileapps.blackberry.com/devicesoftware/entry.do?code=bbm6   to download  BBM 6.2 .After Installing restore your Contacts from the backup . Please try it to see if that helps in resolving your issue.


Good luck.
