Default Problems With Blackberry Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hi
I purchased a blackberry bold and it was working brilliantly till I installed weatherbug. I uninstalled the program but the uninstallation was unresponsive and froze half way through. Afterwards I booted the phone up and was missing several icons including my email and messages, phone profiles and a few others. I followed the instruction and did a reset (remove battery) and after this the phone appeared to recover.
Unfortunately the odd error message still shows up and I was wondering if I should do a clean install of the operating system.
The only thing Im worried about is that I had the phone unlocked and I do not have the unlock code anymore. Will the phone relock if I reinstall the operating system? Is there anyway to view what the unlock code entered was?

DON'T reload OS yet.
trry another battery pull. try 4, try 10.
until the device works.
IF and only IF then does the device still give you errors, you can reinstall the OS.

Also as stated above, reinstalling the OS has no effect on the lock/unlock of the phone.
