***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
cheating bf?

I found a BBM conversation on my bf's blackberry from his ex gf. Unfortunately I either didn't look at the date or it wasn't there. He got this phone after they supposedly broke up so I called him out on it and he swears up and down that it was an old conversation and everything transferred over from his old phone. I say that the conversation wouldn't have transferred. Am I wrong?

Every BlackBerry has a unique PIN that is used for BB Messenger. However, when he got his new device, he may have backed up his contacts and all other data from his old phone using Desktop Manager, then restored it to his new one. I do think it's possible an old conversation would stay on there. I've found old BBM conversations I didn't even know I still had.

 

In this case, I would say you can give him the benefit of the doubt.  :smileyhappy:

Wow, I say you need therapy and to be alone for a while.

Well, I guess it's a first in *my* forum experiences...and Dr. Phil I ain't. 

 

But...from a tech point of view, yes, he could have restored from a bb manager and it would have put it back on his phone.  Also, if he used something like SmartGrd, it has that feature as well.

 

On the Dr. Phil front, though, you really need to have a long discussion with your bf.

My husband wouldn't have the first clue on how to find anything on a BlackBerry, since he has a turn-of-the-century flip phone. And if he did, he'd be bored to tears reading my conversations.

 

Something tells me we'll ever see the OP here again anyway.
