BlackBerry Messenger 6.1 brought along some cool new features, one of which is the ability to use animated icons for your avatar. While you can download them at various places on the web, not many people know that your BlackBerry already has some animated emoticons waiting for you. You can easily choose one of the nine included icons to use as your own animated emoticon avatar.
- In BBM press the Menu key then choose View My Profile
- Press Menu again, then choose Change Display Picture
- Scroll down and select Avatars
- Choose one of the 9 emoticons to use as your avatar
The icons won't look animated at first, but if you select one you'll see a quick preview of it's animation. Choose one, save, and it will be set as your new BBM avatar. When your friends highligt your name in their contact list they'll see the animation.
