Hi carrimc,


Welcome to the support community!

You should be able to uninstall BBM in Options > Device > Application Management if it is currently installed.

This KB article should help with your BBM icon not displaying. "BlackBerry Messenger icon disappears from the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone" http://bbry.lv/Nph6PM


Let me know if that helps.
