The icon of my SMS is vanished from my phone. What do I need to do to get it back to the screen of the handheld device.

Re: Icon

Hi and Welcome!


First -- hunt around very deeply to see if it just hasn't gotten moved into one of the sub-folders (e.g., Applications, Downloads, etc.)...it is very easy to move things without realizing. Also, make sure you "Show All" icons in both the home screen as well as in each sub-folder...icons can be hidden away yet not really gone. It's pretty unusual for this icon to just vanish -- and certainly not all on it's own. So it's either hidden somewhere or, if the application was truly deleted from the device, service books would need to be re-pushed (your carrier can do that for you) to re-enable it on the device.

Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!

from the home screen press the BB button twice and select SHOW ALL.


you probably hit the hide key on accident.
