Overwrite contact pictures with display pictures

Depending on your wireless service provider or organization, this feature might not be supported.

When you use this feature, for linked contacts, contact pictures that appear in other applications (for example, in the contacts application) are overwritten with display pictures from BlackBerry Messenger.

Before you begin: To perform this task, you must have linked at least one BlackBerry® Messenger contact with the contacts application.
  1. On the Home screen or in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
  2. On the contact list screen, press the Menu key.
  3. Click Options.
  4. Select the Replace BlackBerry Contact Pictures With BlackBerry Messenger Pictures check box.
  5. Press the Menu key.
  6. Click Save.
To stop overwriting contact pictures with display pictures, clear the Replace BlackBerry Contact Pictures With BlackBerry Messenger Pictures check box.
