Home screen icons are missing

I have a Curve 8310 running v4.5 OS. 

 

I was hiding\rearranging some of the icons\folders on the home screen, and suddenly all the icons were missing.  Pressing the <menu> button does absolutely nothing from the home screen.  I have tried pulling the battery - no luck.

 

 

I can use <alt> <esc> to get to some applications, but not to Options or Setup.

 

Any idea how to get the icons back or reset the home screen to default?

Re: Home screen icons are missing

First, on your homescreen, press Menu > Show All.

 

See of any of your hidden images will appear as a ghosted or transparent effect.

Sorry, per the original post, the <menu> key does nothing at all.

Re: Home screen icons are missing

Try getting to your options by setting your Call Log (press the green dial key) > Menu > Options > General Options > Dial from Homescreen = OFF.

 

Now, on the homescreen, press the O (oh key, not the zero) for Options. 

 

Go to themes and change themes. 

 

Do you see your apps and icons now?

Re: Home screen icons are missing

Awesome! 

 

I was able to change the theme, then changed it back to the original.  All the folders are missing, but the icons are there.  I did a theme "reset to default" and that took care of that issue and all is good.

 

It looks like it may have had an issue due to the limitation of more than 31 icons on the desktop?

Re: Home screen icons are missing

You are very welcome.

 

I am not aware of a 31 icon limitation on the homescreen...

YOU ROCK!   Thank you Thank you Thank you for your post.  It brought my BB home screen back to life.  I have no idea how I lost all the icons on the home screen.  I had the screen locked and it was in my purse.
