    Did contacts have pictures before? Also keep in mind that anyone that uses older bbm, will not have an avatar.

    its the person himself who sets a picture as his avatar. so your other contacts didnt put pictures.

    but most probably its the guy with the picture who has BBM5 and the other people are still on the old BBM.

    Weird!! well, am no BlackBerry expert, and someone will probably more useful to u, but i would have to say, maybe because you have your girlfriend's bbm contact linked to her bb contact, as in her number on ur fone. and thats why the bbm retreived the pic from your contacts.

    and by the way, you shouldnt let your girlfriend get the new bbm, i installed it on my girlfriends fone and now she wants to know what my location is, every five minutes mfg:mfg:mfg: lol

    When you installed BBM 5 it gives you the option to link your BBM contacts with your Blackberry device address book. I bet your GF's facebook picture is in your address book as well.

    If you have other pictures of contacts and want them on your BBM, just highlight their name, select the bb button and scroll to Link to Blackberry Contact.

    You could try a battery pull, might reset everything. Otherwise it could be just because it's not an official version. There are a lot of unknowns yet.
