Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Please use, via USB, the Desktop Software to reinstall the ToGo apps:

When you use the above procedure, what is the very first line of things available for install/removal from your device? If it's not the core BBOS (which you actually cannot control the check box for...it is mandatory, but still needs to show on the list), then you'll need to do one more trick.
i try to search docs to go on the market but it says that it's not available for my device.
I thought you said earlier that it did not show in AppWorld at all? Now you say this...did something change?
Please realize that I need to understand your situation clearly and completely...only then can I hope to provide you with useful help. And, I have only what you tell me here in this thread to go by...I have no other data sources of information about your situation. So I need for you to help me so that I can help you. Rest assured that hundreds of other people have found themselves in exactly this situation...and recovered from it...by calmly and clearly providing the necessary accurate information (so that recommendations can be useful to the situation).
Let us know!

Thank you...that helps a great deal...
If i search docs to go on my smartphone , it does not apper. If i search it on the internet with my laptop, and than i scan the barcode with my phone camera , the app shows but with a message "not available for this device".
This is normal. The on-device AppWorld automatically filters and only shows you apps that are compatible with your device. The internet based AppWorld will show you everything, not filtered for specific compatibility. Compatibility is a function of several factors, which you need to read about on the web-based catalog page (e.g., device model, OS level, carrier, country, etc.) to be 100% certain that you indeed are eligible for that specific version of the app. From what the on-device AppWorld is doing, I can only deduce that there is something in that compatibility section which you do not meet...and hence it is not available to you. But you need to carefully review that information.
About the app list, i just see the few ones that i downloaded(whatsapp and few more...) . I can't see the core apps.
As I suspected...so now please determine your exact already-installed BB OS:
And then proceed with this:
1) Uninstall, from your PC, any and all BB OS packages
2) Make sure you have the BB Desktop Software already installed
3) Download and install, to your PC, the BB OS package that is presently already running on your BB:
4) If that OS package is from a carrier other than the carrier for which your BB was originally manufactured, then delete, on your PC, all copies of VENDOR.XML...there will be at least one, and perhaps 2, and they will be located in or similarly to (it changes based on your Windows version) these folders:
Now re-try the prior procedure...and you should now see more things in that list, and hopefully the ToGo app is also there available for you to install.
To make things clearer: i erased Docs to go on the apps list inside the settings panel, the one which shows running processes, ram usage and so on. My initial aim was to kill Docs to go because it stopped working properly and it was making the OS unstable.
Hmmm...somehow though you actually totally removed the app then? Odd, but certainly possible... Beware though...if you've done nothing else other than to remove and (now) reload the app, then you may well expect the prior behavior to return. You may want to investigate more drastic measures, starting with ensuring that your OS itself is as up to date as it can be (and, as discussed above, you are not limited to only those OS packages provided by your specific carrier).
Good luck and let us know!

There is no such thing as an unbranded BB -- regardless of what the screen ever displays (e.g,. the carrier "splash screen" is completely irrelevant), ALL BB's contain a VendorID code, which is hardcoded into the hardware at the time of manufacture, and indicates the specific carrier for which the BB was manufactured. When unlocked, the BB can be used on any compatible carriers network.
There are no "pure" OS versions anywhere...all OS's are released by the carriers, and the VENDOR.XML trick (step 4 in my post above) is how you use an OS package that comes from a carrier other than the one that matches the specific VendorID on your BB.

That is the key...you need to search via the Download Portal for:
You choose that by looking here, when you get into the Portal list for a carrier for your specific model (this one us just an example...it IS NOT what you need):
That "Applications" number is the one you are trying to match. Sorry, I can't point you to any specific carrier...there is no "master list" of the specific OS's that each carrier supports. It's a manual process of you digging through ALL of the carriers in the Download Portal until you find one that supports the 9860 AND also supports your specific OS level.
Be very careful, though...from all I can see, your BB is not natively supported by your carriers network. Hence, some very careful tricks must have been conducted to get it to originally work on their system...and if you do this wrongly, you will wipe out those tricks and perhaps render your BB useless on their network, until those tricks are done again. If you are at all unsure about this, then I recommend you do not try it but rather seek out a local (to you) qualified technician and pay them to help you through this. I'd hate to see you try this and render your BB useless on your carrier network...
