Restore BBM contact

Hi,

I lost my BB dakota and bought a new BBQ10.  The problem is I can not restore my BBM contact from my back up data from my desk top manager.  Already google it without any good result.  Any tip ? thanks.

Re: Restore BBM contact

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

I do not recall if LINK (which, for BB10, replaces the Desktop Software) can or cannot read backup files created for legacy devices...you should install it (LINK) and see.

If not, then you should investigate one of the free legacy backup file extraction apps. Extract the data you need, get it into Outlook, and then sync to the Q10 (either direct USB via Link, or if you'd prefer OTA, you can do that).

You might find more information by searching the LINK section of this site.

Good luck!
