    Venting ... frustration... grrrrrrrrr

    Advertisement



    Ok, so I come home last night, eat some dinner, chat on BBM for a few minutes with a couple people, watch a lil tv... basically procrastinate doing the wipe and reload on my BB, cuz I'm almost positive I DO NOT want to do this. Finally I can take it no longer. Icons appearing and disappearing randomly, my god i was in Rooster and it just went away, then came back while I was ..never mind what i was doing when I was playing Rooster..it's not relevant. ANYHOOO... so I get off my lazy hiney, go to the computer, plug up my precious baby in, cradle it in my lap, open DM, wait until its active and all.. click Back up.. wait... wait..wait... Then I am ready to wipe and reload.

    Now, I'm thinking this is gonna take forever, so I grab my BB Manual and I'm reading, yeah, I like to read tech manuals, so sue me... a few minutes later I look down, and lo and behold, my precious is smiling at me showing all of her pretty icons. Cool. So YOU think. No BBM list.. No contacts in my address book. No bookmarks. Nothing that I've ever really needed and wanted on my precious is there anymore. My precious is blank. She has lost her personality and it's no where to be found.

    It's a very sad day in Jade's BB world. sniff.

    Ok, done venting..

    Well then its one of the following:

    A: Didn't do a correct backup

    B: Backup is corrupted

    C: Backup didn't reinstall correctly

    Pretty sure only C is going to be the only fixable solution in this case.

    BBMessenger Contacts don't backup (Unless there is a new DM that is automatically doing it) so you will have to reload all of those.

    Everything else should have been backed up

    Oh Jaded. Doesn't sound good.
    Do you sync your contacts via DM using Outlook? If so I'm surprised those have popped back in when connected to your DM. And N8 is right about your bb messenger. This should be something RIM includes in future DM/OS upgrades. But who knows. Sorry so many problems

    What are the chances you did a wipe handheld THEN did a backup?

    Just checking, stranger things have happened.

    Believe it or not I went through a similar situation last night but my bb had totally crashed!!! After reloading using the dm my precious was also blank!! I was as if I'd just taken her out of the box for the first time!!!!!! So believe me when I feel your pain!

    Todd, Outlook is one of those programs that mysteriously disappeared off my computer last week. I think, no I BELIEVE, that the Technology Gods are getting me back for some past life in which I abused a new fangled device. I need to see a hypnotherapist and find out what I did to deserve such techno hatred.

    Nope, did the backup first. It just hates me. I think my computer got mad cuz I spend more time on BB than I do on it. So it just deleted my backup.

    Seriously, I dunno. But I'm almost over my mad. ALMOST.

    I was ONE TIME able to backup and restore my BB Messenger contacts, but I don't remember how I did it.
