    I lost my new bold 9700 and i still know the pin on that device. If i have the pin is there anyway i can get all my bbm contacts? I didn't use the desktop manager when i had it.

    Use ABC Amber BB Converter on your latest backup.

    If you never backed up the device and you lost it, there's no way to retrieve any information from it.


    Just wondering where exactly you would be expecting to "input" the device PIN in order to retrieve the BBM contacts?

    i never use DM either. i use lookout mobile security for backup, but am pretty sure it doesn't do the messenger contacts.

    DM does backup the Messenger contacts as well as the other settings.

    Back to the OP - did you think to do the backup to your email address within BBM? If so, when you get a new BB, you just recover your BBM contacts by re-linking it from the email address.
