If your Text Messages icon is missing, the first thing to do is a battery pull. This might or might not restore it but it's a good first step. If it restores your icon, you're welcome. If it doesn't, read on.
If the battery pull doesn't do the trick, plug your phone in to your PC and open BlackBerry Desktop Software. Click Device at the top of the software then click Restore. Choose the most recent restore point and load it to your phone. Reloading your OS restores all core apps such as Text Messages.
