BlackBerry App World Icon Missing
3days back I got a message from RIM about the updated version of BlackBerry Messanger. I received a notification inside my messages inbox for the update and without much thought, I upgraded via the link provided in that notification message. After successfully installing, a routine reboot was done and after that BlackBerry App World icon never showed up since then although it is displayed under the list of installed applications. I was then shocked to find out that the only solution to this problem for the time being is by doing a device wipe and restoring it back in order for it to show up. I took it to the service store of blackberry where my handset was formatted and reinstalled with all the messengers and BlackBerry App World.

I connected my phone with the BlackBerry desktop manager and it says BlackBerry App World has been installed but I dont find anywhere the icon to be browsed. I have blackberry curver 8520 series, which I bought it in Nov 2010. The icon is not in hidden mode. One of my friends suggested I should download it from, but unfortunately, the browser IE doesnt support this and I could not download it.

OPTIONS -> Applications -> Add-on , bb apps world is installed along with bb application center, bb maps. The apps is installed but there is no icon anywhere for it. Deleting and re-installing it did not work. I have selected show all and it is nowhere to be found. I am getting pretty frustrated.

Please help!!

Re: BlackBerry App World Icon Missing
I am having same problem, I cannot get any joy from Blackberry or my Phone provider, it seems nobody wants to know. I have tried to reload Apps World via the Apps World site but it will not sync to allow the downloads. If this is not sorted soon I will just throw the phone away because I cannot upgrade till 2012.

I have already done a wipe of the memory 5 times, I have downloaded the Apps program from the web before updating phone and also after backing up phone ...still nothing.

I have the same problem, haven't found any solution except wipe the phone and reinstall the OS. It seems that isn't a consistent fix either.

Try reinstalling the latest version of BB App World

from your BB browser, go to: Download BlackBerry App World

Freshapple, unless there is an even newer version they released, it's the newest version that caused the problem. It would be great to get the prior version back.
