Blackberry 8700 - Phone Icon Missing???

I have a blackberry 8700 and somehow I deleted the phone icon (maybe others too) that was on the home screen. As a result, I can no longer use the phone portion of the device. I can still text, but I can no longer dial out. Is there a way that I can reset my phone completely w/ it's original default setting.

Missing icons from the blackberry, specifically facebook, games and GPS after installed appears to be a profile issue. Go to advanced settings and change the theme from carrier to one of the standard blackberry profile\themes and you will likely see them. I have not figured out yet how to get them on to the carriers theme but this should help a little.

How to uninstall apps on a BlackBerry Tour


Uninstalling an application from a BlackBerry Tour is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. First, find the app's icon. (By default, this icon will be located in the Downloads folder unless you've moved it.) Move the trackball over the icon and press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots to the left of the trackball). From the menu, select <span style="font-style: italic;">Delete</span>.<br /><br />A confirmation window will appear asking if you're sure you want to delete the program. Select <span style="font-style: italic;">Delete</span> again. You'll see a message that says, "Deletion will occur when handheld is restarted," and you'll be prompted to reboot your BlackBerry. If you choose <span style="font-style: italic;">Yes</span>, the phone will shut off and go through the cold boot process -- just like if you'd pulled out the battery. It may take several minutes for the device to fully boot back up, but when it does, the application will be deleted.<br /><br />If you choose not to restart at that time, the application's icon will be removed from the folder, but the application itself will remain on your BlackBerry until you perform a cold boot (turn the BlackBerry off, pull out the battery, then reinstall it and turn the phone back on).<br /><br />Even after you've completed the uninstall process, the application's files will still remain stored on your BlackBerry. You can find and delete these files by navigating through the BlackBerry's file system. In your Home folder, select <span style="font-style: italic;">Media</span> and then press the BlackBerry button. Choose <span style="font-style: italic;">Explore</span>, and you'll see two options: <span style="font-style: italic;">Media Card</span> and <span style="font-style: italic;">Device Memory</span>. Select <span style="font-style: italic;">Media Card</span>, then continue down the folder tree by selecting <span style="font-style: italic;">BlackBerry</span>, then <span style="font-style: italic;">app_world</span>, then <span style="font-style: italic;">downloads</span>.<br /><br />The next folder will have a name that's a combination of letters and numbers, which is your BlackBerry's PIN. Select this folder, and you'll see a subfolder with the name of the application you just deleted. (If you have more applications installed, there will be folders with their names here as well.) Press the BlackBerry button and choose <span style="font-style: italic;">Delete</span> to get rid of the folder, which is only taking up space and isn't necessary anymore since you've already uninstalled the application. If there are other applications here that you've previously deleted, you can erase their files too to free up more space.

Missing "profiles" icon on my BB 8310 curve


In the main screen, before you enter the menu, if you scroll the joystick to the up, you reach the upper profile icon. But to get your old icon back, maybe it's been hidden and you only need to go to your main menu, press the menu button again, and you should see the "Show All" option, if it's selected you can unselect it then you can go back to main menu and you'll see the hidden icons in grey color. When you come over the hidden icons and press menu button, you can select to hide or show them. And when you do the "Show All" steps again and select it again, this time you'll hide your icons selected as hidden.
