Yup i just fixed mine Please copy and paste the following link into your web browser address bar, and then click Go or hit your Enter key. When prompted, choose the option to Save the file to your Desktop. Once you have downloaded the file, please follow these instructions. 1) Double click on My Computer so that you can see it on your screen. 2) Turn the player off. 3) On the top of the player is a Hold switch, move it to the right (toward the headphone jack) so you see Orange. 4) On the left hand side of the player is a Record button, press and hold it while connecting the player to the computer. Continue holding the Record button until you see a new icon under My Computer called 16MB FORMAT. Once you see that icon you may release the Record button. 5) Double click the file you downloaded earlier and run it. Follow all of the on-screen instructions, and when you get to the prompt where it asks you whether you would like to Format it, choose Yes. Once it is done, click Finish. 6) Disconnect the player and look at the screen. Several things will be displayed, and when you see Key Lock, System Shutdown, move the Hold switch on the top back to the left. 7) Turn the player on and watch the screen. If you see a Refresh Database Fail error, you will need to follow steps 1-7 again until you do not get the error. If it does not work the first time, it could take up to 3 times for it to work.

I lost some of application shortcut on wall.

If your phone is an iPhone then you have accidentally deleted this app from the phone or it has been remove for safety/legal reasons by apple. If your phone is an android then you have either deleted it or more likely you just removed/misplaced the icon for the app. To put it back you need to go the the main app folder and locate that app hold down on it for a few seconds till it either asks you what to do (set to home or something) or it automatically switches screens to the home screen and drop it there.

I accidentally uninstall the preloaded sms app. How can I recover it?

If it was pre-loaded, it should still be on the phone. You need to access the master app library, normally by tapping the menubar on the bottom. Once you are there, locate the app and press/hold until it highlights. You can then drag it back to a user screen.

You can also go to the Play Store and select another SMS app for your phone, which will work as well as the pre-loaded app.
