Default need to convert a .bbb file to get my contacts to my new nokia c5

Please Login to Remove!

Could anyone help me convert my .bbb backup file on my Mac to a readable file to put my contact onto my new Nokia C5.
I no longer have the BlackBerry Pearl phone only the backup on my mac.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I have wasted hours going around in circles as i'm not a tech person and am getting really frustrated because i'm sure a tech minded person could solve the problem in minutes.

This is your only option:

Get forensic access to essential information stored in BlackBerry backups

Why would you change to a C5 though?

Rename the filename.bbb file to filename.zip
Extract the .zip

Inside there should be a .ipd file which you can open using a third-party .ipd reader, as mentioned above.

For the future, just a tip, you don't need to be tech and there might be cases in which inside the .bbb backup you may find only compressed .dat or .ipd files (as mentioned already) but if you use BlackBerry Backup Extractor - a third party app - it just recovers your data from the .bbb backup without problems. Cheers!

Are you the developer of this software? If so, you are spamming, and that is frowned upon here.
