    there has to be a wa to autodelete contacts in BBM. i have a lot of "greyed out" contacts on bbm and dont wanna remove them One By One ....

    randomly today, i noticed that 200 contacts went missing ... so i was like 'wtf' and did a restore ...

    and then i realized that the inactive contacts were the ones that were missing ...

    id like to 'redelete' the inactive contacts ... hope that all made sense.


    please help if you have a method to deal with this

    Thank You!

    by inactive, i mean people who dont have bbm anymore.

    About the only thing you can do is send a broadcast message and then delete anyone who doesn't respond.

    You could try something like, "Do you still use a BlackBerry? Do you still want to receive BBM from me?"

    thanks. but that would still require going through my list haha. im just kind of lazy. I am pretty sure there is a way, since when i lost the contacts, it was all the inactive contacts that were missing ...

    i am not sure how that happened, but i would like for it to happen again. i plugged my phone into the computer earlier today ... then plugged in my old phone ... then plugged in my new phone again .... (since i was trying to move Text contacts (not bbm contacts) over from my old to new phone ...) ;...

    and then just randomly tonight ... 200 bbm contacts went missing ....

    someone HAS to know the method. perhaps its on blackberry desktop manager?

    You are not going to find an "automatic" solution.
