HELP HELP App world icon disappeared

My App World icon has disappeared from desktop while uptdating to ver I have checked this forums and it seems it's a widespread problem and the solution is to wipe the cell phone software and then reinstall everything.


However, I am not satisfied with this solution as: 1 - I paid a lot of money for a work instrument that is software prorietary; 2 - I have no computer I can use to install BB software as I am running Linux; 3 - RIM has been aware of this bug some time but yet hasn't done anything to fix it or avoid it in the future.


So my question now is: is there another way to make my icon reappear or should I just replace my and all my employees' cell phones with Android ones?

Re: HELP HELP App world icon disappeared

Have a look at the post above - it depends on which version you're talking about. A lot of people were having problems with version .56 and then installing the BB ID app after doing the update. Then with version .58, a lot of people had the problem with the AppWorld icon disappearing after the upgrade. If this is your problem, then you can simply go to http://appworld.blackberry.com/ on your phone and install version .56 from there and that should overwrite .58 to .56. Hope this helps...
