its for reasons like you that users don't want broadcasts, they are god damn annoying.. if you want me to look at soemthing don't spam it to me say hey take a look at my blah blah blah. this way things are very inpersonal and i get pissed off when folks do it
a side not niether me or my GF had trouble transfering and she only had blackberry link to do it, she was still usign a BBOS5 curve
Thunderbuck : because every time I log in with the same Blackberry ID , it shows "the image above" and stays forever. and I can't use BBM. I don't know why I don't get the option to skip restoring contacts.
FranzJoseph : maybe it just can't restore that number of contacts , some ppl have over 1000+ contacts .. don't know what they'll do about it.
Bla1ze : It's also better so I can broadcast my PIN to my old contacts to add me , since I can't use bb id on both devices ! I have to switch.
GTiLeo : you can always delete the contact if he's spamming ? or add a feature .. mute them ? why take away a special bbm feature

Disappointed with the new BBM on my Z10
No issue with my contacts, moved them over.. But the number you have is kinda large, so maybe there is an issue there.
How the **** do you manage so many? Are you one of these Facebook users with thousands of 'friends' hehe

i have to say this is the smoothest most simple backup or transfer to date. download link, plug in old phone hit one button, plut in new phone and hit one button. whole thing complete within a minute or two. go into bbm app and enter email and password, all 50 (sigh, come back to bbm!) people were there. so seamless.

Downgrade to BBM 6.2
Send a "Hi" to myself
Upgrade to BBM 7
For you maybe, install BBM 6.2 on your old device, add yourself, say Hi and then try again on your Z10? If it doesn't work upgrade to BBM 7 on your old device, make it restore then try again on your Z10?

Maybe it's some little server guy in the background running around and saying "Wow this guy still has 600 contacts on BB messenger. Something we are not used to seeing in such a long time" And he's running around telling everyone, hence the long wait

Disappointed with the new BBM on my Z10
I didn't face any problem transferring my address book contact ( as I sync it with my Gmail) and I didn't face any problem with my BBM contact as I back it up remotely to my email too.
But the annoying things I found with the BB Z10 are:
1- When ever I send BBM invetation the reciver recive two invetations, one from my new BB Z10, and the other one from my old BBM, dont ask me how bcz i realy dont know.
2- addition to the annoying brodcast by selecting one by one, when ever I deleted the chats and send brodcast the chats I have deleted come over back to my chats with what I have sent.
3- lack of important apps in appworld, no whatsapp, instagram, viber, tango, keek and lot of good apps, I have found a way to download cooked androide apps to be compatable with BB Z10, but stell its hangs.
4- when ever I receved a video or audio link, there is no way to save the link, its only direct streaming, which is annoying speacialy with poor network reception.
5- the ringing volume is too low.
6- not comfortable in the hand as the iPhone.
Hopefully , they fix the issues soon.
Many people adding me and I'm just receiving Messages with their PINs on the subject , but I don't receive BBM Invitations so I can accept their requests
sometimes when they delete me and add me again , I get the invitation..
