BBM disappeared

Hi:

 

I updated BBM at this link

http://ca.blackberry.com/bbm/bbm-voice.html

 

When I go there with my Bold 9900 it says :

Update BBM on your Smartphone

Watch BBM Voice Video

See the How To Demo

 

After it installed, it asked to Restart which I did. 

 

After all of this, my BBM Icon is gone & I can't go to app world & re-install because it thinks I still have it.

 

I had someone send me a bbm to see if I still receive it & I am not.

 

So, my app is gone, can't reinstall & bbm no longer working. 

 

Any idea how I can fix this?

 

 

Incedently, when I go to that link via PC it says

 

" 404 Error - Page not found

The page you have requested has been moved or no longer exists."

Re: BBM disappeared

Hum.  I tried to use the Bar Code scanner to install it again on this page http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/3729/?lang=en

 

When I tried to scan it tells me Barcode Scanner requires at least BBM6 on your device. Click to download. So I click & of course.. I can't d/l bbm cuz the phone thinks I already have it..

 

It's totally farked up my phone to get that upgrade. :Eek:

Re: BBM disappeared

Go to your options, device, then application management.  The icon should be there.  Delete it from there then reinstall.

Re: BBM disappeared

Thank you! I didn't know you could delete the app in the location.  I've deleted & reinstalled... It's stuck at the part where I restore an old copy of bbm list which I can't do until I can get home & plug iit into my PC.  It's gone well this far so I'm sure that will work.

 

Thanks very much! :smileyhappy:
