    Your bbm contacts should be there, yes. Though im not sure if you had to select what you wanted to backup.

    There seems to be an issue with the remote bb contact restore currently.

    I hope you separately backed up your BBM contacts in BBM (options- backup management- backup) before downgrading, as far as I know a regular backup or even a load backup does not save the BBM contacts

    Have you made a recent backup using desktop manager? If so, restore it by connecting your device and instructing it to restore.

    I backed up my BB 2 days before i did the OS downgrade cause my media player stopped playing videos. I didnt want to do a complete WIPE & lose everything, so i thought a downgrade might fix the video player. I only did this because i didnt want to wipe it clean and lose all my emails, contacts, etc. I am not to computer saavy, so i am not sure what backing up on my desktop manager does for me.

    Anyways, i was able to restore my BB contacts by cliking OPTION when in the BB messenger & there was a restore feature.
