| | Re: lost applications after upgrade? is it normal?
Many of your old third-party apps may not be compatible with the new OS you installed. Doing a major upgrade from OS 4.x to OS 5.x, or from 5 to 6 like I just did, means you have to download a new version of some apps. And sometimes a new compatible version is just not available. Happened to me with Viigo. In that case you have to find a substitute for the old app.
Using old and incompatible versions of applications can really mess up the overall stability of your BlackBerry. They screw with more than just their own functions, effecting the system software itself.
