    Okay I'm sure others have had this problem, but I noticed that with some of the people I chat with more often, BBM starts deleting their chat history because there apparently is a limit of 147kb per contact, which is stupid.

    My media card has 3.6GB out of 3.7GB left, so space isn't a problem, I was just wondering if there was a way around this stupid limitation, or if at least I can recover chats when I plug my blackberry into my laptop, like just because I can't view it on my phone, is it really completely gone or is it stored in a file on my media card. And yes I've looked on my IM discussion folder.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Open BBM> Hit menu button> Select "Options"> Scroll to "Save Chat History"> Select "Media Card"

    You can end chats whenever you want. When you want to view them, just highlight the contact, hit menu button, and "View Chat History"

    You can also, hook your phone up to a computer, and view it as a drive, or usb device. The file path is BlackBerry> IM> BlackBerry Messenger> Your PIN> History> Each contact with have their own file named as their PIN, open them in Excel.

    Umm they are already being saved on my media card, but Blackberry has this 147kb limitation on how much they will save on individual chats, so a person who i've been talking to everyday for months will only now show as far back as 2 months because it reached the 147kb limit.

    I was asking if there was a way around that limit.
