MemoPad missing after 5.0 upgrade

Did they do away with it, or is it just me?  Can anyone tell me where to find it or how to get it back?  It is no longer in my Applications folder where it used to be, and can't find it anywhere else.  I used this feature alot! 

 

Thanks for any help you can give!

Re: MemoPad missing after 5.0 upgrade

Then please give me an answer I can work with!  The rest of the other thread is old stuff about someone who can't find it on a new phone.  I know where it WAS but can't find it after the upgrade. 

 

I have Verizon.  The memo pad was in Applications BEFORE I did the upgrade but is not there now.  What am I missing?   

 

Can you help?  Thank you.

Re: MemoPad missing after 5.0 upgrade

I think I moved mine out of the applications folder.

Certainly... I answered again in your other thread. That's the problem with these duplicate posts... you ask in two places, it gets confusing and just causes confusion among those wishing to assist you.

Re: MemoPad missing after 5.0 upgrade

I was having this same problem and had a tough time figuring out what to do. It took me combing this site and crackberry.com to figure it out.


If you have any native BB applications (Memo Pad, Password Keeper, Task Manager, Etc.) missing after upgrading the OS you should:


1. Reinstall on your computer the previous version of the OS the phone was running that had the application on it.

     (1a. Delete the vendor file if it's an OS that's not from your carrier.)

2. With your BB conneected to the computer, run the Desktop Manager and select Application Loader.

3. Click Add/Remove Applications and you should see a list of all apps available from the OS you just reinstalled. Make sure any apps you want loaded have their box checkmarked.

4. Click Next and they should be uploaded to your BB.

Voila!

 

Now that you've got your apps back but they'll come empty, with nothing you've previously saved on them. If you had a backup file created, there's hope!

 

To restore info to the newly reinstalled apps:

 

1. Click on Backup and Restore on the main menu for the Desktop Manager.

2. Select Advanced to replace specific data on your device

3. Click on File in the top left-hand corner of the window and then Open... to select the previously saved backup file where you want the BB to restore the info from.

4. After the files populate in the left-hand window, select the apps with the info you want restored and then select the >> button to indicate they are to replace the current data.

 

You'll get a confirmation window to veriffy the new data is to populate the app and then it transfers right over.

 

Takes some work but well worth the effort... especially if you're like me and had a bunch of info on your Memo Pad that you can't live without!

 

Cheers

Re: MemoPad missing after 5.0 upgrade

Connect your phone to desktop manager, click on Applications on the leftpane, search for the application on the right pane, You can see "+" sign to install the perticular application.

Done.

 

If you can't see the application (memopad ) there, you will need to downgrage your application
