Re: Bbm chat history help

If you dont clear the chat with your BBM contact, it will keep a history of it. You can also copy a chat or email a chat by clicking on the overflow icon in the chat window (3 vertical dots).

So in other words I cannot delete the chat like before? In OS 7 and earlier you could delete the chat but retrieve it by parking on the contacts and pressing the menu button

Re: Bbm chat history help

With regard to saving BBM chat history on the Z10:

 

1. Can saved BBM chat history be searched (other than by manually scrolling through vast amounts of text)?

 

2. Can saved BBM chat history be transferred, let's say, as a text file, for archiving and searching by some other means / on some other platform?

 

2.a. I understand that one can "email a BBM chat", but only a handful of the latest lines of a chat are incorporated into an email - not useful if one is looking to copy older excerpts?

 

2.b. Where is BBM chat history saved? Device? SD card? Is there a directory path that we can follow to access the history?

 

3. What is the purpose of saving all of this history if it cannot be efficiently accessed / searched / archived / used?

 

Thanks for any insight.

totally agree - been asking theese questions since Feb - doesn't seem to be an answer forthcoming though.

Was hoping OS 10.2 announcement would include it! haven't heard anything yet ...

This has to be addressed!!!
