Default Address book Weirdness

Please Login to Remove!

My daughter just gave her BB Storm to my son and went with the Droid. I had not removed the Storm's PIN from her address book entry. I did remover her from my BBM contact list, and added the PIN to my son's address book entry. I then added him (and the Storm) to my BBM contact list.

Now, when I get a text message from my daughter, HIS photo is displayed instead of hers.

Has anyone seen this? Anyone know how to resolve it? I am away from home for the next few days and do not have my PC with the address book backup/Outlook databases available until I return home...

Link a contact with a contact in the contacts application
When you link a contact with a contact in the contacts application, you might be able to perform additional tasks using BlackBerry®
Messenger. For example, you might be able to quickly call or send an email message to the contact from the menu during a chat. Also, if contacts
do not have display pictures, their caller ID pictures from the contacts application appear in BlackBerry Messenger instead.
1. On the Home screen, in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
2. On the contact list screen, in a contact category, highlight a contact.
3. Press the Menu key.
4. Click Link to BlackBerry Contact.
5. Perform one of the following actions:
xxx8226; If the contact is in the contacts application, click Select Contact. Click a contact.
xxx8226; If the contact is not in the contacts application, click New Contact. Type the contact information. Press the Menu key. Click Save.
To remove the link, click Remove Contacts Link.

Change a contact's display picture
To perform this task, you must have linked the BlackBerry® Messenger contact with the contacts application.

2. On the contact list screen, in a contact category, highlight a contact.
3. Press the Menu key.
