You need to downgrade your software. There's no way to get it back once you update unless u go back

This is how I did mine...

Go Here: BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites

Select your region and carrier. Then select your phone and then all available versions will be shown. Download and run the executable of your choice. .459 is 8530AMEA_PBr5.0.0_rel756_PL4.2.0.201_A5.0.0.459_Sp rint_L.P


Then open Desktop Manager and go to the Update screen. Follow the prompts and warnings and you'll see the option(s) to downgrade. I had no issues at all doing this on my 8530.

There are other ways as well.
