Default Blackberry Messenger bug

Please Login to Remove!

I seem to be experiencing some kind of problem within my Blackberry Messenger. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the fact that I put up an animated picture, but every time I try to open the Blackberry Messenger I get the Uncaught exception:java.lang.NullPointerException I've already tried updating and that didn't help. Can someone familiar with this issue please point me in the right direction?

Can you delete the picture and see if that fixes it?

Try a battery pull?

I can't even open the messenger. Every time I try to get inside I get that java.lang message.

You should try another battery pull. Do it with the power on, and wait a good minute. If that doesn't do it, then I'd start with the least troublesome action and delete the app and then reinstall. If that doesn't fix it, do a security wipe (and do a full backup first), then test with a few contacts, and then restore your data, and then add-on and third-party apps. Then, worst case, wipe with JL_CMDER and resinstall the OS, etc. But start with the simple first.
