Re: how to import BBmessenger contacts into my app ?

there is no programmatic way, but it can be done if you can get the user to save  a backup of their contacts and parse. I started on a project with this, but put it on hold until they have a solid format for the backup file. I've found three so far and the newest version still uses the same format as the two previous releases, so i may start it back up.
