Default Icons missing after OS update

Please Login to Remove!

I performed an OS update earlier today and all is running smoothly on my BlackBerry except for one thing I have missing icons now. I made sure they're not hidden and I went to the BIS site and had my service books pushed to me. I can send and receive email easily but I no longer have a browser icon or any of the other service book pushed icons such as BlackBerry Help, etc...

After resending the service books I went to options/advanced options/host routing table and registered but that didn't help either. I made sure it wasn't deselected in the desktop manager either.

I rolled my OS back to 4.2 and even after that I was missing icons. I wiped the handheld with JL_Cmder and tried the older and newer OS and the same thing occurs.

I know RIM is upgrading BIS to BIS 2.5 this weekend but the outages are set for evening and I can send/receive emails normally. Could this be a network thing or is it my device? My carrier feels it's my device since it's unlocked and from another network so they're not willing to assist me much. Their advice was to go buy a new branded device as they can guarantee service on it.

Anyways any help or advice from the experts would be nice to hear.
