    WHy back up BBM contacts when it never works?

    I dont see the point in backing up ones BBM contacts. If i get a new BB or a BB with another carrier, and back up with a micro SD card, it still doesnt port every contact over and in most cases, i end up having to request everyone again. What purpose does the BBM back up feature really offer? Why do some contacts port over and some dont and need to be requested again? Is it because the contact themselves did not back me up and in order to work, both people must back up?

    Someone please explain.

    You're much better off doing a remote backup - I have done this hundreds of times and haven't any issue to speak of. I never use local backup. Also, the DM backup works perfectly as well, but if it's not restored quickly, same as remote backup - and one of your contacts changes devices in between - you'll lose that contact, if you have both changed devices.
