You may need to clarify what you're doing, and if you need help with MagicBerry, you might turn to them for documentation and support.

Re: How to open BB .ipd file on computer

I am looking to make a large word document of all the texts in my ipd file so i looked at magicberry but the file never opens just keeps showing the status bar. I think maybe the ipd is too large for magicberry? There is 50k sms so i think this is the problem. I looked at the macro and dont understand how to get that working. Has anyone tried anything different, or maybe has solution to magicberry failure? thanks

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Please provide the exact and complete error message...from merely "some error", we cannot begin to guess anything useful. Note that if you are attempting to use that ipd file with anything other than the native BlackBerry Desktop Software, then errors are quite likely -- that file is of a proprietary format, and is only usable by the app that created it. Any other use requires 3rd party tools. There are several 3rd party (free) apps available for PC that can extract the data and present it in human readable format, which you can then do whatever you need to do so as to get them into your Android. A few seconds with Google and I'm sure you can find an adequate (free) ipd reader app for your PC.

 

Note that, once you get the data onto your PC in some usable format, then it's up to other tools (e.g., Android-provided tools) to go to the next step.

 

Good luck!
