    Well, I just got a brand new Torch, as a warranty replacement from Rogers.
    Now all my BBM contacts are missing!
    Is there any way to recover those contacts if I don't have access to my old phone, and some of the BBM contacts don't have an address book entry?

    well, if u did a backup on dm before u got your new phone, youre bbm contacts should come back if u do a restore from the old one. when i changed my old 9810 to a new one, they came back np even if i had a new pin

    Although this will likely not help now, I always do the occasional backup of BBM contacts within the application and I back it up to the SD card. That way if my BlackBerry dies an unexpected death, when I put the card in the new phone I can restore from the card.
    Won't help you out now, but something to keep in mind for the future.

    Do you have BBProtect? oh wait you said that not all of them are linked with BB Contacts . if they were in your BB Contacts then BBP does an auto backup for ya.

    Well, somehow it seems to have restored them all, though for each one I have to send a PIN update, oh well...
    UPDATE: Only the ones that aren't in my contacts I have to send a PIN update to...
