Re: cannot restore bbm contact list

hi, sorry to be replying after a month, but yeah i do have a @blackbery.net kinda email adress. actually in my coountry its @[provider].blackberry.com. i dunno if this was due to bad connection [which i doubt cuz all the other wireless services worked just fine] but i had to make a new email address to be on my way with email services. i dunno what'll happen to the old email address and if i can still use it or if the services connected to that email adrress will be active.

 

what do you guys think?

please read this article from the public knowledge base:

Is your @digicel.blackberry.com email address marked as registered in your BBm

Re: cannot restore bbm contact list

Hey Xandrex, my current email address is now registered with bbm. I believe that the first was not, or at least I didn't register it with bbm manually. Still waiting on the verification mails from bbm, although its status is already as 'registered'. They told me to look in 'junk' folder just in case... I don't remember my device email address even having a 'junk' folder.

Re: cannot restore bbm contact list

do you confirm the following two points:
1 when you did the BBm contact list backup, you did it towards your @digitel email address
2 now, your @digicel email address is not registered within BBm

with those two points, you cannot restore the BBm contacts list. You will have to register your digicel email address in BBm first.
