Restoring contacts from a secondary BB

[ Edited ]


I have a Torch that is for personal use, and I recently got another Torch from work. I wanted to have my contacts the same in both phones, so I backed up data from my personal phone and restored in in me work phone.

All worked fine but now my BB messenger contacts were somehow "migrated" from my personal phone into the work phone and now I receive personal BBMs in my work phone and apparently the system redirected everything there.


Is there a way that I can have my personal Messenger contacts back to my old PIN? without having to send a request to everyone again? I do not have any Work contacts yet in BB Messenger so I think its a matter of restoring somehow into my personal phone, but I have not had luck.
