If you want to continue using your avatar with Yahoo's products, go to Yahoo Profile and upload the avatar you downloaded. Additionally effective April 1, Yahoo will no longer support the Avatars YQL table.

Effective April 1, 2013, the Yahoo app for BlackBerry will no longer be available for download. For those of you who have already downloaded the app, you can continue to use it but it will no longer be actively supported.
