Default Generic Icons? - Yahoo Messenger - Google Talk - Blackberry HELP

Please Login to Remove!

The icons for Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk and Blackberry HELP have all changed to some generic globe(?) icon. Can they be changed back?

Thanks.

Pull your battery and reboot the Blackberry, see if they "reappear".

It's the generic browser icon. You may have to delete the service books and have them repushed.

FYI the icons are only links to pages, not the actual applications

I am currently searching for "How to" add icons, like on your pc desktop to like a webpage for example. so this is how i stumbled into this thread, but is there a way to make an icon from a webpage to the bb desktop just like on a regular pc?

perfect storm, if that was for me thanks.
i was hoping there was a way already on the unit itself. i support about 100 users here for the University of KY Housing and my maintenance staff is too busy or not close to come by for adding software to the unit and set up. :(
but maybe i will grab this for myself
thanks again.

I'm not sure, but I believe if you are operating a BES there is a way to push out icons. I can't confirm this though
