BBM contacts are lost !!

Hello,

 

Actually, today was the first time I use Blackberry Desktop Software. After connecting my device to the USB port, the Blackberry Desktop Software asked to make a backup. I allowed that to happen, so it made a backup.

After unplugging my device from the PC, I tried to use the BBM, but I realized that all my contacts are lost.

 

I tried to restore my mobile files using the application. When I did that, I found all my files and information on the device, but I didn't find the BBM contacts, so I tried to restore the BBM contacts from Blackberry Desktop Software, but that didn't work.

 

By the way, sorry if my language is sick. I try to improve it daily.

 

Hope u help me Smiley Happy

Re: BBM contacts are lost !!

I think you did upgraded to Ver 7 which is saving your BBM contacts in your BB ID.

 

If you did so before you lost them try to re-download it and upgrade your BBM to ver 7 from

Select your desired language and update then sign on with your BlackBerry ID.

Try to do a files backup then upgrade your BB OS.

 

You should be able to do that via BlackBery Desktop then try to update BBM.
