Read BBM on PC

How can I access the BBM on my pc? I wish to read the backup.


It seems strange that the facility to access the BB information (BBM, SMS etc.) is not possible through the Desktop software.


If I a wrong about this please advise.

Re: Read BBM on PC

If you backup your BlackBerry to the PC, you can use a PC application like MagicBerry to extract the messages you want from the backup IPD file.

Re: Read BBM on PC

Many thanks for your input.


Unfortunately Magicberry and other 3rd party apps that I have found and tried tried do not allow me to read Blackberry Messenger messages on my PC.


If anyone out there knows of an app that will do this please let me know.


Again, thanks for your help.
