    I keep having this problem whenever I try to download and install BBM7 my contacts are gone and never seem to be restarted after trying many solutions. Is there a way to restore them actually? I really need help with this.

    They restore when you log in to your BBID (or should).

    And how do I do that?

    When you reboot from install, you paste in the security code when you open BBM, then it prompts you to sign in to BBID.

    I tried that and logged into BBID and still nothing. It's not even restoring my contacts at all. The only solution I had to do was uninstall it and download the BBM 6 and it worked fine.

    I couldn't find anything listing someone with the same issue in Beta Zone. Only thing I could find even close all points to BBID needing updated. You can try that. I know I was prompted to update BBID after the first BBM beta install. Download BBM beta again, then after the reboot, try Options->BBID->menu->Check for Updates.

    BBID was already updated when I had it installed so I don't think this was the problem. It was updated even while I was on BBM6. Still can't get it to work.
