Text icon is missing!

Somehow i deleted the Text icon.  Can someone help me get it back on my screen?  I can still text, but it's a pain because I need to go thru the contacts database.

Re: Text icon is missing!

First, while you're on your homescreen press the menu key and see if Unhide All is an option.  You might have just hidden the icon and pressing this will unhide it.

 

If that's not the case, reload your OS.  To do this, plug your phone into your PC via USB and open BlackBerry Desktop Software.  If you don't have it installed on your PC, type www.blackberry.com/desktop from your PC's browser.  Once you have your phone plugged in and the software has recognized it, click Device at the top of the software and Restore from the drop-down list.  Choose the most recent restore point and proceed.  This will put the texting icon back on your homescreen.

 

 

Let us know if that helps you.  Smiley Happy

Re: Text icon is missing!

Thanks! The menu suggestion did the trick.  In fact, you helped me find the two other app icons that were also missing!  Didn't know that option was there.
