BBM New Pin notification when BB Resets
I've been having this issue for a week now. Everytime my phone resets or I do a battery pull and open up my BBM a pop up saying:"You've switched to a new device. Do you want to update your contacts about it? Otherwise you contacts list will be erased."
Does anyone have any ideas on why this would come up?
By any chance did you recently upgrade your device operating system?
I have the latest that VZW provides and just switched devices.
Well i assume that you replied yes at least once after the device swap, that should have done it. Otherwise we might assume that there is a corrupt file someplace. Here are a few suggestions.
1. Use DM to back up your device. Then delete the BBM contacts data base and reset the device. Use advanced restore to replace the data on the device.
2. Assuming you have your device operating system installed on your desktop. Use application loader to remove BBM from your device. Reboot and restore the application, then use advanced restore to restore your BBM contact list (dont forget to back up first)
I had the same thing happen to me also when I turned up the security options. I haven't been able to back up my device properly since. I keep getting errors when backup reaches the tsl otions. I tried to clear out the tsl options as some other suggested, but that wasn't much help to the situation.

Same thing happened to me once I set the security options.
I'm having the same/a similar issue. Ever since I upgraded to 4.5 BBMessenger has given me the "switched to a new device" error. Sometimes it happens after reboots, sometimes it's in the middle of a conversation. It's getting really frustrating and I can't seem to fix it. Here's what I've done so far:
Is there any way this could be a server-side issue? Anyone have other suggestions on steps to resolve this?
- Uninstalled/reinstalled BBMessenger - this didn't help
- Gone into Advanced backup settings in the Desktop Manager and cleared the BBMessenger database - this didn't help either
BTW, I have a Pearl 8130 in case we're trying to establish patterns.

Thats how i got it to go away.
PTR, I've done what you suggested, that was part of my troubleshooting steps I listed in my post. That's what I end up doing every time I have the issue, but the problem is that it KEEPS HAPPENING. It's not a one time thing; something's wrong here.
Woooopps, just noticed that.
In that case just return it unless you've already uninstalled the software and downloaded to have a fresh start.
yeah thats all i got. lol
I don't think that's the answer here either, because it was working fine before I upgraded it to 4.5. This must have something to do with the software, not the hardware.
thats what i meant by uninstalling and reloading the software... it must have a messed up file on the one you had loaded to your blackberry.
