Default Blackberry Map Icon missing.

Please Login to Remove!

I just realise that the blackberry map is supposed built in the OS.
I checked the "advanced options" - >"application" , the blackberry map is in the BB. However, I can't see the icon of it since the day I got my phone last week.

May I know how can I get it back?
I have tried to restart the phone and remove the battery and sim card. but it doesnt seem work.
Thanks

I use SFR in France, but my friend using the same network and phone as me, she has got the Blackberry map icon, this is why I am struggling.

On the mobile downloading site they are saying: "your device does not meet the system requirements that are needed to support Blackberry maps."

Did you look in all the folders on the menu of icons? It's in one of those (applications or downloads or something).

I have looked at every single folders in the bb and I could not find the map icon.
Also, I have re-installed the blackberry map with the desktop manager, still no icon shown up.
But when i click into option, i can see it.

Could it be hidden? I think you can unhide icons but I forget how. It sounds like the program is installed, there has to be a trick to uncover the icon itself. You might have to call Tmob and talk to a BB dude/dudette about it. I bet they can find that sucker.
