Re: Extracting calendar and contact data from .bbb files

Hello,

Natively, the BBB file has only one purpose, to be used as the source of restore to a BB. It is in a proprietary format, and BlackBerry provides no tools to use it for any other purpose.

But, there are 3rd party PC apps that can parse it and present it in human readable format...a few minutes with Google and I'm sure you will find one that will work for you (and likely for free!).

Good luck!
