    Why does BBM back up & restore never work?

    I switched from a 9780 to a 9700 and i backed up and restored. Yes, it restore my contacts, but when i message them, it comes up with a message saying i need to "re-invite" my contact. What is the purpose of back up and restore then?

    I had the same issue and found it was only pins that had changed while I was using my old phone. (those contacts got new phones) When it transfered the contacts seemed it transfered the original pins not the new ones. That was my experience anyway just curious if my theory has any merit

    That's because YOUR pin changed when you switched devices so now you are reinviting your contacts to your NEW BB PIN .

    It restores contacts that are accidentally deleted, or if you have to reinstall your OS. Switching devices is adifferent story.

    Technically this doesn't belong in 9700 either, BBM is a Native App, and backup/restore works on models other than 9780/9700.
