    Hi guys,

    just thought id see if i can get help on the below issue.

    Basically, my phone got stolen but all my bbm contacts were backed up to a gmail address, now when i try and restore from that it says its not linked to any blackberry messenger account.

    Its definitely a valid account as ive used it in the past for a restore while changing devices

    any thoughts?

    I have had this happen with both email addresses I have linked to my BBM restore.

    If you have a recent Desktop Manager backup from the old device, restore the BlackBerry Messenger database to the new device using Advanced Restore. That should get your contacts back. You may have to reinvite them becasue you have a new pin.

    Hope that helps you.

    edit: if you do get them back, back them up locally (SD Card). File will be named BBM-(11-06-09).con
