    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?

    It may be due to the fact that both phones have different PIN numbers. So even though you are able to restore your contacts to the phone you've switched to, your contacts won't have the same PIN that identifies you on their contact list and therefore, you must be "re-invited" on their side in order to identify you.

    I've had it work and not work. The times I've had it work, when I restore the contacts and bbm info I also make sure I restore the service books!
