Default BBM Group Chat Message Retrieval - Help Make a Mother's Day!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey folks,

I recently returned from a trip abroad and while away I sent to my family various messages to a little BBM Group my younger sister help set up of what I had done the previous days. For some reason that remains to be seen, the default setting on BBM Groups is keep messages for 3 days. Needless to say, there were a few messages that my mom really liked and wants to save, but she isn't technologically inclined and they have since disappeared from her phone.

Is there any way to get these messages back? Perhaps a phone restore to a few days ago or something? Or is there someone I can call at BB or my carrier (Rogers) to get them to retrieve it? Surely it's saved on a server somewhere.

My mom woke up this morning stressed beyond belief that she's lost one message I sent in particular (the one reflecting on the trip as a whole) and she would love to be able to save it.

Thanks, and to the mothers out there: have a happy mother's day!

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the messages are gone, really gone, unless you backed up the BlackBerry while the messages were there. BBM is peer to peer, so I can't even imagine the messages being stored anywhere. Still, though it is perhaps possible, for your purposes they would be the same as gone.

OP, could the messages you sent possibly still be on your device so you can either resend or recover? If not as the others already said, they are gone.....
