    Thanks for the fast response; I had actually tried that first.....that little cell phone icon is not on the 'show-all' either (seems like everything else is.....the call log, the calendar, messages, all the web icons......but no phone icon and I know it was there yesterday when I first got the phone.....frustrating......any other suggestions??

    think I'll stop at AT&T store first; since they set it all up, maybe they know how to get it back before this master reset; appreciate the information.

    Another question: I've tried to download Blackberry Maps and find that this is not compatible with the 8310. Is that true? Many thanks again for all the good information.

    Yup. Do a master reset.

    Master Reset (Wipe Handheld)
    WARNING: Proceed with caution. A master reset will result in the loss of ALL user data! It is recommended to perform a backup of the RIM BlackBerry data.

    1. Scroll to and select the Settings icon (to select push the trackball in).
    2. Scroll to and select the Options icon.
    3. Scroll to and select Security Options.

    4. Scroll to and select General Settings.

    5. Press the Menu key , then select Wipe Handheld.

    6. The device is going to confirm that the data will be erased. Select Continue.
      WARNING: A master reset will result in the loss of ALL user data!

    7. Enter "blackberry" to confirm handheld wipe.

How to setup my gmail on samsung gt 3 2120

Find the Gmail icon in the Apps list. Here is the most confusing part. The icon on the left is the Gmail app. The icon on the right is the icon for all your other e-mail accounts.
2Tap the Gmail icon. Because your phone does not know if you have a Gmail account, it asks you whether this is a new account.
3Tap the Existing button on the screen. This brings up this screen.
4Enter your existing Gmail user ID and password. Go ahead and type your e-mail account address and your password. When you are ready, tap Done on the keyboard.
You may get a pop-up re-confirming that you agree with the terms of use and all that legal stuff. Tap OK. You'll see lots of flashing lights and whirling circles while your phone and your Gmail account get to know each other.
If everything is correct, your phone and your account get acquainted and become best friends. After a few minutes, they are ready to serve your needs. If you have a problem, you probably mistyped something. Try retyping your information in again.
From this point on, any e-mail you get on your Gmail account will also appear on your phone!

The I Tunes icon is on my phone and won't let me go to any other application including that one

It looks like you updated OTA (Over The Air). What you have is an iPhone in recovery mode, nothing to worry about as long as you have a computer. The icon is letting you know to connect the iPhone to the computer to restore your phone since something went wrong. If you have a back up in iCloud, you should have no problem restoring everything the way it was. Best of luck.

A icon just appeared on my screen that says phones

You may have accidently put an app icon to home scree. You can delete it by press and holding the icon. A trash icon will appear at the buttom of the screen. Drag the icon to the rash icon and you are done.
It wont delete anything. It will just remove the icon from home screen.
Also, to add any other icon on the home screen, go to menu, press and hold the desired app icon and it will be on the home screen.

Have accidently set up new garmin nuvi 1390t in polish how do I change the language to english

  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon at the bottom right corner of the screen showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) I know it'll take a bit of trial and error to find it in Polish.
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (The blue icon) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
  • This will bring you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • Press VOICE and select the voice of a person from an English speaking country
  • Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English
This should solve your problem

Voicemail icon won't go away.

I've had the same problem as well. I made sure no messages were there, then called and left myself a message from another phone. I went in and listened to the message and waited till the option to delete came on and for the indication there were no more messages. Icon was gone.

Sim Icon

I've just read on another site that it's supposed to tell you that your memory card is inserted and working fine. Why the instruction manual doesn't list all icons beats me.
