Greetings and Welcome to the Forum!
The issue you have with your Blackberry has nothing to do with the Operating System. The problem is completely seperate from the OS.
The BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) Icon only appears once the service is registered with your BlackBerry. Then the icon is "pushed" to your BB.
Here is the procedure:
Go to the "Options" (wrench) Icon on the home screen, click the trackwheel and choose "Advanced Options" , click and choose "Host Routing Table", click twice and choose "Register Now".
This will register your BlackBerry with the BIS service. Then in turn the service will push the Icon to your desktop.
Once you have this completed it's highly likely that your problem will be resolved.
If this does not work then call T-Mobile for further assistance.
