Default OS upgrade...lost my BBM

Please Login to Remove!

I've recently upgrade the OS on my 8800, and it in the process, my BBM dissappeared.

I've reinstalled bbm manually (ota), but all my contacts are obviously missing.

I have a backup file (.ipd I think) that should have all my bbm contacts.

Is there an easy way to get my bbm contacts from the ipd file back on to my berry?

I've figured it out and just thought I'd post, as it may help someone in the future.

I just re-restored my .ipd file after bbm was manually installed and all my contacts came back.

Thanks for posting...I will give it a try...I assume you did it via DM? Did you restore the entire back-up file?
