Re: Text Messaging Icon missing

Hello ewaychong, 


Welcome to the forums. 


Have you checked to see if the icon is hidden or has been moved to another folder?  To check for hidden icons from the main screen hit the menu key and choose the "Show All" option. If the icon is hidden it will appear to be grayed out. To unihide the icon, highlight the icon, hit the menu key and uncheck the hide option. 


Hope this helps. Have a good day.
