    Question HELP - my BBM contact list didnt come back

    Advertisement



    Hi All

    I am having a problem with BB messenger. First off I have a T-MO 8100 Pearl running .73 OS. My problem came after I did an OS downgrade from the new Rogers OS back to .73.

    My issue is that when I did a restore of my data from a backup my BB messenger contact list didnt come back. So I figured i would try PIN'ing a person but all that comes up after I put in there info (PIN or Email) is a message box wanting to send an invite message. I spoke with the person I was trying to PIN but they only see my name as pending and I dont see there name at all.

    I really dont use BBM that much but I like it and I want to be more familiar with it. can Someone help me out. Maybe this is normal and I'm being a Newbie about it.

    no that doesn't sound normal. first I would try pulling the battery and see if it continues. Next perhaps re-send your service books (not sure if that will affect it or not but BB's are a different beast for sure).

    Hey cliff

    I already tried a battery pull and resent my service books and reregistered on the network. Maybe you can tell me why my backup didn't restore my contact list or at least some advice.

    Thanks again

    Re: HELP - my BBM contact list didnt come back

    not sure why it didn't come back bafil...never had that happen.

    how many times did you try the restore?
    do you have an older backup that you can go back to? or selectively just restore the bbm?

    might be able to get a fresh copy of bbm? rerun the apploader and make sure that the box is checked? just throwing some options out there...

    really not sure, did you try doing a "restore" again (hope you have a backup from before the upgrade/downgrade)?

    Hey again

    Thanks for the suggestions I will try another install of BBM and are if that helps. The restore I used was from the backup I did minutes before upgrading. I'm just stumped on why I can't add someone into my BBM contacts
