    Then all I would have to do is swap my media card and then choose Restore Contact List when I get my replacement 8120? I gotta send the other one back due to a worn out trackball.

    thatd be an amazing idea but i really think the only way you can back up bbm contact is from yur desktop manager or if you write em down or somethin

    yes that is one way cause when the dm does or ask for a backup it says the ipb and u can use this to open it to get the contacts if u wanna right them down or save it in a text doc http://www.processtext.com/abcblackberry.html

    or just restore the ipb to get them back but if u dont wanna use the dm software get the bbm5 and it has the options right into it and also does a autobackup if u check this in the bbm options which is better cause if u add people and keep adding people it will keep doing the backup and have the contacts u just added unlike if u do it with the dm software u will have to plug it into pc everyday to make a fresh backup

    The new leaked BBM 5.0 does let you back up your contacts to your device memory or media card, your choice

    Yeah cross your fingers, it may be device specific, has anyone looked at the bbm backup file and checked if maybe there might be some thing in it that only lets you restore it on the device it was made on?
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    It loads the backup file to your memory card. I went through this 2 days ago.

    I had to do a Switch Device Wizard via DM from my 8120 back to my 8100 and I was able to restore the exact same contact list onto the 8100 (this shocked me because I couldn't get BBM 5.0 to load onto my 8100 for the life of me). I gotta do another Switch Device Wizard via DM when I get my new 8120 (hopefully later today as I got 2 texts from T-Mobile letting me know the exchange request had been received, processed and the phone was shipped) and reload everything onto it.
