BBM how to backup chats?

Is there a way to create permanent backup of my bbm chat history. I enabled history logging but what happens if the backup file on my sd card is deleted? Is this the only way to keep history?

 

Thanks in advance

Sure, copy the backup file off your Media Card to your PC every so often or email it to yourself.

OK thanks. So there is no automatic way to do it - some kind of bbm feature for remote backup or some app?

Yes the backup to your Media Card is automatic.

 

You backing up that backup is not automatic. Of course you could automate this part by downloading and getting a DropBox account, loading it to your BlackBerry and then making that file folder an automatic backup to DropBox.
