    How can I save BB IM history to a file on my computer?

    Advertisement



    Howdy Pinstackers! I have a very long BB IM conversation that I'd like to save. I used the "Copy History" function, but when I went to paste it into a new email, it only pasted about 30% of the thread. (Did I mention it was a LONG conversation?)

    I would highlight the rest of the thread, but BB IM interface doesn't allow me to do that. Any ideas? Can I sync with the desktop and maybe hack into the file?

    I have BB 8100 Pearl.

    Thx, Patrick

    when you spoke about the sync with desktop and hack I got an idea, its not solid tho,

    To a backup of the phone, open the IPD file that the backup created in notepad.

    If your lucky you'll see the conversation in plain text.
    But formating would for sure be garbage.

    Good suggestion. I opened the file with Notepad and searched to find my BB IM screen name (patricks42). Found the thread in question, but interestingly enough, only the first 8,108 characters (with spaces) was there. I'm pretty sure this is/was the break point whilst trying to paste into email as well. So the question remains, where are the other 100,000 or so characters? (It was an IM chat over a month long period.)


    Thanks for your help!

    could it be that the phone deleted them to save up some space? Or are they viewable at the phone?
    If so, a long shot, take screenshot's using JL_cmder.. he he

    If the convo is as long as he says it is that would be a LOT of screenshots
