I have no other contact for this person and they dont even use facebook so without their bbpin we may have lost contact for good. iv tried everything to try and get it back. I have a bold 9700, please can someone try and help me??,
    thanks, lucy x

    Hi Lucy,

    When you deleted the contact, it updated your email backup, rendering it useless as an option to get that contact back. Your next bet would be a backup file you might have created before, stored either on your phone or on the media card stored in your phone. Any chance you did that?

    To check try going into BBM -> Options > Restore contact list > Restore from Media card/ Device.
    You might be able to see a backup file there ending with .bak .. If not you can try going into the Files app on your device and searching for a ".bak" file and restoring it using that.

    Be careful to make a backup of your current list first onto your phone just in case it all goes up in flames!

    although i'm not sure, you might want to try and look at the chat history if you save it.
    It might get deleted if it's linked with the contact, but it may just still be there.

    Check your backups and when you see a chat you recall you did with the contact just re-add the pin.
