previously i had a blackberry bold 9780. backed it up to my computer and everything, ... BlackBerry Torch forum
previously i had a blackberry bold 9780. backed it up to my computer and everything, switched to an iphone 4 then switched back to the blackberry torch 9800. i have 60 contacts on bbm and wanted to know if i restore my bbm contact list from my 9780 will all my contacts on my torch get deleted and replaced with the 9780 contacts?
much appreciated for any help given
Not 100% sure, but I don't see why it would. It will probably recognize that you have contacts already and just add them to the list.
thanks for the help! i may or may not try it. wanna see what other ppl say too
Well, you do know that you can do a back up of your BBM contacts in OS 6, don't you?
Hey agent 47, I tried sorta the similar thing. Had a similar problem.......backed up my contacts and installed a new software. Before i restored my new contacts, i got some friends and when i tried restoring my old contacts, my new contacts didn't remain. The only solution i guess is if the new contacts ping you, u can restore them or keep a note of the new contacts and after u restore your old list, send a request to them again. It ain't a good solution but just a caution as to what happened for me. Luckily i made a note of my new contacts.....cheers....have fun...hope it helps

Reason: New Mobile......Bold 9780
The BlackBerry Meesenger contacts are saved in the BlackBerry Messenger database. They are separate from the address book database.
All you have to do is a specific restore where you only restore the BlackBerry Messenger database to your BlackBerry Torch.
so if i do a specific restore i'll be fine and not lose my current contacts i have on my torch?
I would do a specific restore as well. As long as you have the bbm's of your contacts stored and linked to their respective address book contact
Have you gotten everything resolved? i know this was a little while ago but just wanted to follow up with you
