They disappeared???!!

I own a BlackBerry Curve 8520.
I bought it this May, and it has been working perfectly fine.
But yesterday, I'm not sure what happened, but a few apps disappeared.
the ones that disappeared are:

-BlackBerry Messenger
-BlackBerry Maps
-BlackBerry App world
-BlackBerry Application Center

The Show All option is on, my application list says they're there, and when I connect it to the PC, it says that i have those apps installed.

I tried BBM-ing myself using my friend's BlackBerry, and it definitely sends the message;it says delivered. But I can't see it, because I can't open BBM. It hasn't deleted, because my friends can still message me. Everything else is working perfectly fine. What could be wrong?

I also have an additional question.
I downloaded the newest OS from the BlackBerry website and ran the program, but when I open the Blackberry PC thing, it doesn't update. Why?

 

Also, I don't think my carrier is relevant to this question...so please don't ask me?

If YOU think it's relevant however, I guess I'll post it...DTAC THGSM

 

Thanks in advance...i guess

Re: They disappeared???!!

Well, carrier is indeed relevant.  Why is it such a secret? 

 

Follow the instructions (exactly) in the first post of this thread.  Pay no attention to the carrier you are downloading the OS from...it makes no difference.

Then simply reinstall those apps after the upgrade.

Just download those apps again, i.e. from www.blackberry con/appworld as sometimes the icons disappear after an update.

Unlocking allows your device to be used on another network, with another sim card.
