I lost my address book icon on my blackberry 8700


First, download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

Once installed, connect your BlackBerry to your computer via the USB sync cable. Open Desktop Manager, and click the Application Loader. On the right, you will see Update your device software. Click the Start Button, and if your BlackBerry is not on the latest Handheld Software, an update will appear. Select the update, and run the install. Be sure to select the option that backs up and restores your data. Once started, do not shut down your computer, or disconnect the USB sync cable as this could damage the device.

Once completed, your BlackBerry will restart and you will have the latest version available. This version has been known to correct various issues.

There is an hourglass on the screen and the phone will not work.


Remove the back cover and remove and reseat the battery. Allow a few minutes for it to boot back to your main screen.

Then, download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

If the issue is still present, then it could be hardware related, and may need to be repaired or replaced. I would then suggest contacting your Provider for Hardware Support.

Blackberry Keeps Freezing Up


It is not supposed to occur in a Normal Phone. You should try formatting the Phone (Don't forget to make a Back-Up Copy of the Data in your Phone before).

Freezing


The freezing may be because the logs are full. I had this issue and then set the log levels to "7 days". Everything worked well after that. I found this solution on some other website.

Press "Cntl-Shift-L" and then press Menu. Under "Tools" you will find the option to set Log Duration. Before that, you should clear your log. Hope this helps.
