Cant remember what option I selected to get to this stage but when I go into BBM I get - 1 of 2 and then "Restoring your BBM Information"
I have security wiped the handehelpd and reloaded and it is still saying the same, It goes on for hours. I have less than 10 BBM contacts so not sure why it takes so long or whether it is even doing anything?

Hello darronmillar and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Sorry to hear you're experiencing an issue restoring your BBM Contacts.
Are you connected to a Wi-Fi network or are you using the Mobile Network to restore your BBM list?

I disconnected from wifi to force data usage and still the same. Justs sits with a circle going round and round saying "restoring your BBM information"
All other services wok fine on Mobile network and wifi. Web,Facebook etc..
No errors, just spinning circle for hours until I close the app.

I have the same issue with my new Z10.
I had an 9860 before and the transition worked smoothly except for BBM.
I have BB ID working on the device and data services are on.
What to do ?
PS: I dont mind even reinviting BBM contacts as still have old device and can access PIN's but BBM wont allow me to do that even
