Change your BBM status or profile

Let your BBM contacts know what you're doing or share your mood by changing your BBM name, status, or picture. If you have a status that you use often, such as a vacation notice, you can save it to use again later.

  1. At the top of the screen, tap your picture or name.
  2. Do any of the following:
    • To change the name that your contacts see, tap your current name.
    • To change your BBM picture, tap your current picture. Tap The Replace Picture icon. Select a new picture or animated GIF to use as your BBM picture.
    • In the What's on your mind? field, type a status.
    • To show Busy icon beside your name, tap Status > Busy.
    • To create a custom status that you can select, tap Status > Edit Status Messages > The Add New icon. Type a status that you want to save. If necessary, tap the busy icon. Tap Done. Select the status.

Show your location

To help your contacts know when you might be unavailable to chat, in BBM you can show the country that you're in and the local time.

  1. Tap The More actions icon > The Settings icon.
  2. Set the Show My Country and Time switch to On.
