Default BB Maps Icon Missing

I have Blackberry Unlimited Web on my phone

I posted this over at Crackberry, but no one there seems to know how to fix this problem. The Blackberry Maps icon is missing, and was never on my phone. I just noticed that a few days ago. I did check the forum, and even did a google search to try and figure out the problem. This time, none of the suggested solutions worked. It shows up in my application list in the Options tab, but that's it. I do remember seeing it in the Application list, that's what reminded me to download Google Maps, just never noticed the actual icon itself was missing. Below is a list of what I have tried.
  • "Show All" settings on for the application, checked Downloads, Applications, pretty much every folder thoroughly.
  • Originally I thought I just didn't have it, so I went to, and downloaded it there, it was sent to my e-mail, and I downloaded it to my phone. Still a no show.
  • Battery pull twice, once for the heck of it, second time was after I "installed" BB Maps.
  • Deleted the application, then reinstalled it, numerous times.
  • Went into BB Desktop Manager, and installed it through my computer, after deleting it, it showed up in Options, but that's it.
  • Changed the theme to a BB one, not the default BB T-Mobile one.
  • I even registered the device by going to Options>Advanced Options>Host Routing Table. One forum suggested that.

That's all i remember for now.

Google Maps works fine, idk if it's the plan I have, but the icon should still be there even if I didn't have the plan, just wouldn't work, right? I left my phone on the BB theme, and none of the applications are hidden. I spent a good hour today working with it, and I haven't gotten anywhere.
