Thanks for the info about downloading Facebook.
I turned on my BIS and now AppWorld is working just fine-finally!
But I lost my contacts because my last back-ups did not show up in the new version of the Blackberry Desktop Manager for Mac. Thankfully I had backups stashed somewhere else. Though backups were in .bbb format I converted it to zip (as one forum I found suggested) and then opened it in Microsoft Excel for Mac. still in the middle of editing it finding my way through the rubbish that came along with the contacts. Editing the contacts...saved it in csv format with can be imported in Mac's address book and from there i can sync it to my Blackberry again....learned my lesson to keep more records (e.g. txt file or csv file of my contacts; aside from just the Blackberry back-ups) just in case.
Hope everybody in this forum was able to fix their AppWorld issue.
I also hope that RIM will issue a WARNING to those phones who don't have Blackberry OS 5 yet that they may encounter the same problem we had. Better yet I hope RIM issues a security patch to fix the problem for the other OS 4.6 users and other OS versions users too.

Hi guys, i followed what the other's have said, i updated my blackberry 8520 device OS to v 5, using my pc and after downloading app world again, the icon is now back. The whole process took approx 25mins.
It looks like the only viable solution using a curve 8520 is to upgrade the OS.
Good luck guys.

By the way, too much time to get it fixed
version 220.127.116.11 was released on May 14th, and was compatible with OS5 and OS6 only.
version 18.104.22.168 was released on May 24th, bringing back compatiblity with OS4.
10 days is not "too much time".
