Default Apps not found and apps not working

Please Login to Remove!

I need some help with using my Blackberry Storm. I have found some frustrating problems in using the software.I have updated to the latest firmware as of today.

The following apps seem to be missing from the phone:

1) Blackberry Maps
2)Application Center

I read that Imight need to re-register using the host routing tables. I did and nothing happened.

The following apps are not working:

1) Google Maps : needs a data connection
2) Facebook : Currently on service plan that does not support this application
3) MSN Messenger: Service not enabled for this handset
4) Yahoo Messenger: Service not enabled for this handset

Do I need a Blackberry Internet Service added to my price plan? I already had a vodafone account and I have bought the Storm through an internet shop and not directly from Vodafone with a plan. I am using Vodafone in the Netherlands at the moment.

Are the problems I'm experiencing because Vodafone need to switch on some Blackberry funtionality on my account? Or is there another reason?

Do you mean you don't have any data plan? So you dont have internet on your BlackBerry?

ok got my apps back after doing this---> you need to resend your service books. try going to Options-> Advanced Options-> Host Routing Table -> click the menu button and choose register now. that should fix it up

I tried the Host Routing Table option but no joy! I phoned Vodafone today and they said that I need a Blackberry sybscription added to my acount. As the SAles Dept is closed today i need to phone tomorrow. Strange thing i can already access the internet, MMS etc no problem. It is only missing certain applications or the apps cannot connect because of the missing data plan. I don't know how much extra it will cost me but I will find out tomorrow.

Oh, it seems that Google Maps is now working...sort of. However the use GPS option is not available from the menu??
