I updated BBM from version 7 to 7.0.1. After rebooting I found that my BBM had disappeared. I checked My World in Blackberry World, only to see that it is installed but it was gone. So had all my BBM messages from my Messages. Doing a Restore from an earlier backup did not resolve the issue, 7.0.1 still remained. I have had to re-install version 6 to get BBM back. Installing version 6 meant I have lost BB Voice which came with v7. Does anyone know where or how I can get the earlier version of 7.0.1. i.e version 7?

Thank you very much. I deleted BBM as suggested, removed the battery as instructed, rebooted and re-installed the latest version and the BBM icon plus all my contacts etc were back. Thank you very much.
