Blackberry 8800 BB maps disappeared with new os

I foundthe BB maps quite useful however simple.  Also it was at no additional cost.

 

ATT provider   8800 unit   I welcome any suggestions helpful for re-accessing the no cost program BB maps.

 

Thank you

Re: Blackberry 8800 BB maps disappeared with new os

When did it disappear? Are sure the icon is not hidden (Menu > Show all)?

 

Read this link, also.

Re: Blackberry 8800 BB maps disappeared with new os

It disappered with the installation of the os 4.5.0 ( as shown in "applications" on the BB)  The "new" BB maps 4.5.0 was installed (doesn't work at all on 8800 I understand now) and the older functional maps is gone. 

 

My apologies to all for not including more information in my first request for help.

 

My task now is to uni-nstall the BB maps 4.5.0 and replace it with Bbmaps ______ ?

 

Thank you again.

Apologies to all... I have received far more help than imagined.  I did pull back to read and research more, and follow links suggested.

 

Will resume trying suggested cures in a day.

 

many thanks
