Re: Blackberry app world icon disappeared

Hello mashjohn and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


Under Options>Device>Application Management, do you see App World installed? If so, delete it and ensure you reboot.


On your browser go to www.blackberry.com/appworld to reinstall it. If you get a prompt to reboot, ensure you do so.


Check to ensure your icon now appears.


Let me know how you make out.

Re: Blackberry app world icon disappeared

This has happened to me loads of times, dont panic!

All I do is..

Go to my internet browser

Press the blackberry button then select 'Bookmarks'.

Then click, under 'links', 'BlackBerry HELP!'

Then click 'Visit BlackBerry App World'

Scroll down and click 'Download blackberry app world'.

You should be able to do it from there.


Hope this helped, if it didnt please tell me and I will try again.

Thanks, happy to helpSmiley Happy
