BBM conversation history

I need to recover a conversation that is 2 weeks old. trying to do so- i discovered my BBM was marked to "never" save history. changed it now, but still really need to find the conversation i had before making the change...

 

is there a way to find the old message?

 

thanx!

Re: BBM conversation history

Was that two week old BBM chat deleted or cleared from your device?

Re: BBM conversation history

I think there is no way to find oldest conversation becouse there is saved in folder BlackBerry/im/BlackBerry Messenger/[your pin]/history/[pin other person]

Then it is lost... you would have the chat history saved, sorry.

Re: BBM conversation history

It's not saved on RIM servers.


The chats are saved on the peer devices until timed out.
