Facebook Icon Won't Show Up In Menu

I had the facebook icon with all my other icons in my menu, some how the icon got deleted but the program still ran when i accessed it through BlackBerry App World. I've been trying to get the facebook icon back on my menu, I've uninstalled and reinstalled facebook, rebooted my BlackBerry, and took out the battery while my BlackBerry was still on (I saw that as a suggestion on another post) but nothing has worked. (I have a BlackBerry Curve 8330 smartphone) Any suggestions?

Re: Facebook Icon Won't Show Up In Menu

Is you icon in your Applications or Downloads folder? Also check to make sure the icon isn't hidden anywhere. If it was on the home screen you can display the menu and choose "Show All" to display all of the hiden icons (they will appear as being dimmed out). Once you display the hidden icons check all your folders again, as the setting takes affect for all your folders. If you find the icon, select it, hit the menu button, and uncheck Hide

The facebook icon was originally in my general menu with all other applications. I took your advise and selected show all in my menu but the facebook icon still did not appear

You check all your folders too when everything was unhidden? It still shows as being installed if you go into Options | Advanced Options | Applications?

Re: Facebook Icon Won't Show Up In Menu

When I go to Options/ Advanced Options/ Applications, Facebook appears on the list. How do i get the icon to appear on my (main) Menu?

Re: Facebook Icon Won't Show Up In Menu

That means it's installed then. I can't say which folder though. If you check ALL your folders you'll see it. Just make sure all the icons are unhidden also. I've seen that people have found it where they weren't expecting it to be.

 

Also you can try using the browser on your device and going to "www.facebook.com". If you scroll to the bottom of the page see if there's a link to download FaceBook. Try installing that way and see if the icon appears

Re: Facebook Icon Won't Show Up In Menu

I am having the same problem on my blackberry. I upgraded my operating system to 4.5 and now the facebook application will not show up in the menu. It is listed in the applications, so I know it is downloaded on my phone.. but only after I uninstall it again, does the application show up in my menu. It always disappears when it is installed. How do I fix this?

Re: Facebook Icon Won't Show Up In Menu

i just got my first blackberry last night and I'm having a little bit of fun with it so far.  I ran into the same issue with the facebook thing.  dowload after download and I kind of just gave up on it and was going to call my provider.  In the meantime I was fooling around with it and decided to check out the different themes offered on the device and tested a couple out.  well, low and behold, i went to the apps pages and saw my facebook icon.  I switched back to original theme and bye, bye again.  Went back to other themes and hello again.  So that may be a temporary fix until blackberry can fix the glitch for that particular theme.  I hope this helps you guys.
