Is there any way to open a BBB file without buying an application.

Re: Opening a BBB file

I tried Magic Berry.  It gives an error message when you try to open a BBB file.  It says "Error Parsing the file, couldn't read the DB titles."

Hi maslamkh

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums

 

 

You can Also try ABC Amber BlackBerry Converter or  IPD bbb Extract  Those software were also able to open and extract those Backup files.

Re: Opening a BBB file

Thanks.  IPD bbb extract was not free so I did not use it.

ABC Amber Blackberry Converter has a free version which allows you to view your .bbb files so that is what I downloaded.  It's new name is Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer

Hopefully, in the next year or two, we'll get a free utility that allows you to backup, view AND edit your contacts (like the old Palm Desktop used to do).  I currently use Microsoft Outlook but you have to buy a license for each computer.

Hi maslamkh

 

 

                         Yes I know ABC Amber BlackBerry Converter is now known as Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer. So can I assume you are able to achieve what you needed.

Re: Opening a BBB file

WTF.... Very Simple.

Exactly how do I open and edit the BBB DAT files with my contacts?

All of these threads link to very sketchy software that does not work, and is likely just another virus...

There must be BB users that actually want to open and edit their contact files?

Does anyone have a BB tool or third party tool that actually works?

Thx
