Re: Help

 Yes, if you had BBM v6 on the old device, did you ever do a BBM contact backup to your SD Media card?

 

If on the old device, did you ever recently upgrade to the new BBM 7 with Voice? If so, your contacts are backed up via your BlackBerryID login and will repopulate after you login the SAME BlackBerryID on the new device.

Re: Help

OK, if you had BBM7 on your old device, it would have synced your BBM contacts to your BlackBerryID.

 

On your new device, once you've logged in, set up service and installed BBM7 on the new device and you again login to your BlackBerryID, it should restore your contacts...
