Bold 9900, updated to new software, BBM 7 and BBM icon missing now!

Hi. I upgraded my software to the latest and they automatically upgraded my BBM too, to BBM 7 but now I can't find the icon anywhere on my phone. I've checked on the lists and stuff it says it's installed. I'm sure it's not hidden either.


Please help!

Hello Wooskie


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums


First go through this Knowledge Base and be sure it is not hidden :


KB23968 BlackBerry Messenger icon disappears from the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone


If still unable then , try reinstalling BBM as well as BlackBerry World , but first On your Homescreen go to Options> Device > Aplication Management > Delete those Application from that list .


KB10040  :  How to view or remove installed application on a blackberry smartphone


Once it is done perform a battery pull restart by removing the battery while your device is Powered On , wait a min then reinsert it back.


Finally use  your BlackBerry browser and browse to www.blackberry.com/bbmdownload  to download the most recent available for your device. I hope it will help and resolve your issue .
