Hi Im missing my SMS icon and I'm also not able to receive my text messages. I have done the change the theme back and forward and still nothing. Hey just in case it matters when I go into my messages and go to view folder when I try to view my SMS folder it gives me this message Uncaught exception: java.lang.NullPo interException. I really would appreciate the help

To retrieve your missing SMS icon:  Click on your Messages icon.  Click the Menu button.  Click on Options.  Click on General Options.  Go to "SMS and Email Inboxes", where you'll find 3 options: Theme Controlled, Combined, Separate.  Click on Separate.  Click the Menu button.  Click Save.  You should have your SMS icon back.

Re: SMS icon missing

I'm having the same problem.  My sms icon is missing.  I can send text but cannot receive. Also get Uncaught exception java.lang.NullPo interException when I remove the battery and put it back in.  Have tried to change theme as suggested and still no icon.  Any more suggestions?
