Re: cant change BBM display picture!

Hello riz786 and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Sorry to hear you're experiencing an issue with your BBM photo.


What is your device software version? Are you using the Curve 8520 as stated in your profile or another device model?


To clarify, none of your contacts can see your BBM photo or just certain contacts? 


Do you get any error when you change your photo? 


Please register on the network as shown in http://bbry.lv/pT1JtR and once you receive the Registration message, remove your battery to reboot your device.


After the reboot, change your BBM photo once more and let us know if any contacts see the updated photo.
