    How to stop the copying of BBM Avatars

    After a while I found out how to, yes with a lot of help from Anthony P, lock your pictures / avatars in BBM and not get copied by your friends.
    When you link your BB to your PC just do: Start - computer - *your device* - media -pictures then select the pictures you want to be protected from copying - right click - properties - tick "read only" and voila... You're done.
    It worked for me so far so I guess it works

    Between the two of us we figured it out. It was kind of an accidental solution, we reverse engineered why you could not copy my avitar, and stumbled upon the answer.

    We're not smart, we just think we are
    But most of the credits go to Anthony:hail: I just confirmed what he thought :P
    *does a happy dance about his first "how to" *
