Default 8830 Restore - BBM will not update

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there, so I painstakingly did a wipe and restore of a backup i made several months ago and now I have all my BBM contacts back, but with all status' and names from 4 months ago. BBM will not update to their current states. I even sent a message to a contact and it only has a check mark next to it, no delivery..

I've reset, removed battery..everything? Any options or suggestions other than removing and reinstalling BBM?

I've also deleted service and had Verizon re-send me service books for BBM..no taco!

Thanks a lot!

Mark

Do a restore but click advanced and only move the BBM modules. If those modules are bad, go to the previous backup.
