Re: BBM 7 restore contact after initializing blackberry id

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Ever since BBM7, there is no backup/restore of BBM Contacts. Rather, they are stored on the server along with your BBID...using the same BBID that existed when the contacts existed should cause them to reflect on the BB again. So there is no "restore" to force...rather, just using the same BBID is all that should be needed.

Good luck!
