Hello Tanz1984


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



Which version of BBM you're having on your Curve 8520 ?


If it is BBM7 or higher then local backup is not available for those version , our BBM contacts are stored with our BlackBery ID , Once you login with your same BlackBerry ID on your new 9360 your BBM contacts will populate itself on BBM. Also read this Article :
