Games LOST!

Pretty sure I deleted Brickbreaker, Poker, etc. on my 8520.  The "Games" folder is gone. Did a "find" without any luck whatsoever. Can I recover them?  Help!?

Then they are likely not deleted  Smiley Happy

 

Check ALL folders, applications folder, downloads, etc.

 

Check for hidden icons, from the homescreen > press the Menu key > show all, so that show all is checked.

 

Look ALL over again, the homescreen, games, etc.

 

If still nothing else, With the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot.

 

and, ... look again.

Re: Games LOST!

Hi there

 

Wonder if you can help. After doing a software upgrade on my 8520 to the 5.0.0 version i lost 3 of my games: texas hold'em, klondike & sudoku. How did that happen and can i get them back? It seems from the forums etc that it's common, but no-one has a solution. Can you please help?

 

Thanks!

Re: Games LOST!

Hi

 

I have also upgraded and lost three games. 

 

They are not hidden, nor to be found in the apps folder.

 

Any suggestions on how to retrieve them?

Re: Games LOST!

has happened to me too! Upgraded and lost the same three games. I'm annoyed and no-one seems to know what to do. Shouldn't Blackberry give these games back for free on blackberry app world?

 

Come on Blackberry sort it out!
