BBM Contact Recovery not Working!

Last week on 31st July 2012, I took my 9780 to the provider for warranty replacement. So, I backed up my contact and everything using blackberry desktop and backed up my BBM contact with local backup. Moved to 9800 without any issue with Blackberry Desktop Manager.

 

Yesterday on 08th August 2012. I tried to do the same, backup everything and moved it to my new 9780. Everything was restored perfectly but BBM contact. The contact was restored but It wont update anything, i have to re-invite my contact manually again 1 by 1. But I dont want to do it manually so I wipe everything using security wipe and restore again by local restore, remote restore. Same problem. Until today I still cannot recover my BBM contact for my 9780.

 

I have read on the net that many people having this problem since 2010 which normally occurs on certain days. Some of them solve it by waiting for a few days and do the restore in normal way.

 

What I want to ask is this problem from RIM Server side or from my device?

 

Thanks.

That's an interesting observation... what days is it that this normally occurs?

Re: BBM Contact Recovery not Working!

Thanks, but I'm still confused, what "certain" day is this?

Does it follow lunar cycles, or please explain why you think it only happens a few times a year?

Re: BBM Contact Recovery not Working!

sorry for my bad english.

 

what I mean is It happens to alot of people, and it happens on the same day.

 

Let me give and example.

There are 10 people doing bbm contact restore on 15 march, and maybe 8 or all of them are getting the same problem which is they cannot do any sucessful bbm contact restore. Where some of them saying they can do the restore after 3 days which is 18 march. It may happens again on September or December, by this I mean random, there is no certain day like I said before.

On a PC, can you go to www.bbid.com and login (if you remember your password)?

If you not, you can send a password reset from there.
