Lost Icon I have lost on main menu of my bold the icon for browser. It looks like an earth with an arrow going around (I think that is the one for browser). Where it says "show all" it has a check mark before it, so I don't believe it is hidden. Can you suggest where else to look. My firmware is:

    The instructions were very clear and excellent. The browser globe icon still does not appear. It might be tied to another adjustment elsewhere on the phone. Thanks for a great effort though.

Click on Options Icon (looks like a wrench) then click on Advanced Options then Host Routing Table then click the button on your phone below the screen to the left of the ball (it is has a cluster of white dots on it), then click on "register now" and presto - you get your browser globe icon on your phone! Tada

Lost my browser

LOL lost it how? You mean it is no longer on the Desktop? Have you clicked Start/Programs and see if it is in the Programs List? You can also click Start/My Computer then click the C: Local Disk and navigate down to the Program Files folder. Open it and look for your browser folder such as Internet Explorer. Open it and you will see the ICON that you normally click on to start your browser. Click on it and see if your browser starts, if it does you can move it to your desktop by Right Clicking on the icon and select Send To/Create Desktop Short Cut. Right Click on it again and select Pin to Start Menu. Now you'll have it in two different places.

How do i restore safari browser when i lost the icon

What do you mean by "lost the icon"? If it's not in the dock anymore, but still on your hard disc, you probably just dragged the icon out of the dock. Go to your Applications folder an drag the icon back in your Dock. – You can also use Spotlight (upper right corner, menu bar) to search for Safari.

Can't send or receive sms from my blackberry bold 9700

High there,

You need to determin if the SMS icon is hidden first.
Main menu > BB menu key > Show all.

If this is not the case you need to look into the message folder, found within your email icon and view folders. If SMS is missing then a handset wipe will be required.

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.

Lg Dare phone

I had purchased and am currently using the LG dare. The issue that I had with the icons apprearing on my main screen was that I was accidentally holding down and dragging the icons from my shortcut menu to the main screen. The easiest way to get rid of the icons from the main screen is to hold down the icon and drag it to the little arrow for the shortcut menu, and it should dissapear.( I just did it on mine so it should wok for you).
If that doesn't work, open you shortcuts menu, hit the set button and remove the icon from the shorcut menu (this should remove it from the main screen as well.)

good luck!
