Default .bbb files, anyway to read the data that is saved?

Please Login to Remove!

So i have a mac and my backups are in .bbb format. Thing is I don't have a BB at the moment and the phone that I was using broke... and i lost all of my contacts. Now i know ALL of my contacts are backed up from my BB (well most, other than the ones I've gotten recently) and I was just wondering if there was ANY way what-so-ever that I could get this information without having a BB? I'm more than likely going to get another BB soon but I don't want to back it up with this data for the fact I seemed to be having glitches with old BB's and am wondering if it was due to this.

I can get access to a windows PC if it makes this possible

Thanks in advance

On a Mac there is currently no way to read that file. You would have to do a backup on a pc, then use ABC Amber Converter to read the .ipd file.

MagicBerry "claims" to have a .ipd reader for the MAC.
