How did you back up your BBM contacts from your old BB?

I am sure what you pressed but it should work. Go to email settings and resend your service books.

Service books could be it. If not, give a hard reset a try. (With power on, remove battery for about 30 seconds.)

really was no fix, i just tried to add a contact and it finally decided to take without all the BS, i didn't have to do any of the above, Really got me puzzled, i honestly think it has something to do with bb 6.0
