    Ive got my backups for my BlackBerry Messenger conversations backed up on my computer, and can view it with Excel. Im just having an issue as far as figuring out the timestamp. This is what it shows in Excel:

    201004101270940759695,"[SENDER]","[RECIPIENT]",[Message]

    Now I can figure out that the first 8 digits represent the date:
    Year-Mo-Day
    2010-04-10----1270940759695

    What I cant figure out is what the last 13 digits represent.

    Heres an excerpt of a convo I had, and I know the times of each one cause I can see it in my Message History on BBM.


    [Thu 9:22AM] 201004151271337723997,"[SENDER]","[RECIPIENT]",K
    [Thu 9:23AM] 201004151271337810390,"[SENDER]","[RECIPIENT]",I think I mentioned it when we smoked, but forgot cause we were high as **** lol
    [Thu 9:29AM] 201004151271338179867,"[SENDER]","[RECIPIENT]",Yes

    And another with multiple during one minute:

    [Thu 1:58PM] 201004151271354307342,"[SENDER]","[RECIPIENT]",Omg I'm so bored
    [Thu 1:58PM] 201004151271354319799,"[SENDER]","[RECIPIENT]",Lol slow day?


    There just doesnt seem to be any real rhyme or reason to the last 13 digits representing about the actual hour:minute. Im trying to figure it out as far as seeing the times a conversation starts and ends.

    I did a search and didnt come across anyone referring to this, or asking it before. Anyone have any ideas? Im stumped as ****. Appreciate anyone that can help out with this!

    My guess would be the 13 digit code is just that and not a time stamp. Just a generic code with the date on the front that keeps track of the message. Much like the same way the facebook texts do. Appears your time is stamped in front of the numbers. That's just how I see it though.

    20100415 1271354319 799

    "1271354319" is Unix time "15 April 2010, 17:58:39"

    I have to guess "799" is probably a message number within the second, but it could be the decimal seconds.

    How did you get that time? There isn't an 8 in the numbers. Please explain. I would like to learn.
