Lost apps during device switch...help!

Hello everyone,


Last week I purchased the new Torch 9810, a couple of days of use the trackpad started malfunctioning and well...for the first time in many years I received a defective device, yesterday I managed to change it for a new one without any problems.


As soon as I got home, I did the device switch operation with my BB desktop software without any problems too, but today I noticed something was diferent, I don't have or find anywhere in my phone the OS 7 digital compass. I know it's no big deal, but it was a nice app and would really like to install it on my new BB. I have surfed among the web and apps world and all I find are compasses for purchase, and it came free in this BB device.


So, does anybody know where can I recover my free digital compass for BB OS 7?

Connect your BlackBerry back to the Desktop Software > Applications.

Do you see it listed there? If so, make sure it is checked to install it.
