    Question BB Messenger list Backup

    Advertisement



    Hi people,

    I’d like to know how backup BBmessenger list friends? Is there anyway to do that? The reason I asked this is when I downgrade 4.5.18 to 4.2.2.184, I lost the friend list. I do not want this to happen again. Thanx in advanced.

    I had that happen when I upgraded from 4.1 to 4.2 on my device and I used the backup that I hade in BB Desktop to restore only the Messanger Contacts. You can do the same, back the whole device up and then just apply the Messanger conctacts and there you go.

    No problem. I would also recommend that you backup your device on a schedule, this way if anything happens you have a point in time to go back to.

    ^ Is it possible to load only ONE group of settings from a backup? For instance, instead of loading a whole back up, just loading the BB messenger buddies, or the settinga for Jivetalk, etc?

    Yes, you have to go to the advance options to do that. You have to select what you want to backup/restore and there you go.
    You can do it for both recovery and backup.

    ~via BB.(wap.pinstack.com)~ I have also lost my contact list after upgrades. The restore has come in handy for those times. I just wish the restore would work that way when I get my 8120. Has anyone kept the same contacts when changing models using the Switch Device wizard?

    The backup does not always restore your contacts. Your best bet is to just put your BBM contacts into your address book.
