    I just checked my bbm 5.0 this morning and I have all my contacts back with there avatars showing and my groups I created and joined to. My bbm 5.0 was down for about 4 days since last friday. I just hope it stays stable with no more issues right now.

    I got a system message last night saying I'm part of 6 groups and it's been trying to restore them ever since. It's been 12 hours.

    I did not have to do anything as drastic as this. Just restored my list using the email registered to BBM. 10 seconds later all my Avatars are now displayed.

    BBM->Menu->Restore->Restore using Email.

    That would of course require that you actually saved remotely before.

    I get this message...

    Please try again later. You are currently being registered with the BlackBerry Messenger Service. This is an automatic process that will complete in a few minutes.

    As a side note, after a battery pull last night, I had all of my contacts, sans the avatars.

    That was the exact message I was getting but it was NOT restoring my contacts or groups. I left it for 12 hours with 3 battery pulls and it never came alive.

    If you re-install, do you need to add your friends again and have them accept you? E

    This depends of you backed up your contacts so is you did then the answer is no it will load up your contacts automatically but if you didn't backed up your contacts then the answer is no then you need to add them or they add you.

    BBM will not let me back up my contacts -- it's giving me that error message saying it's registering my BB.
