  1. I use Blackberry 9800 (torch 1). When i bought my phone last month, the app world icon was there. Then, it said i needed to upgrade it. I did so and ever since then, the app world icon has disappeared on my home screen. I deleted it from the application managment and downloaded it again. Still, the icon did not show. Can you please help me out?

  2. That happened to me once on my torch 9800. Did you reboot the phone after uninstalling BlackBerry App World?

  3. Here is a quote from official BlackBerry site:

    “Some BlackBerry® customers who recently upgraded to BlackBerry App World™ version 3.1.0.58 have reported that the App World icon on their BlackBerry smartphone does not appear on the Home screen after this upgrade. If you are experiencing this issue, please visit http://www.blackberry.com/appworld/download and follow the steps to install version 3.1.0.56 of BlackBerry App World. This will restore the App World icon to your BlackBerry smartphone. For further information, you may also reference the following article available via the BlackBerry Technical Solutions Center http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/KB29422. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

  4. I tried downloading it today but i didnot find any website that i could download it from. The only one i saw, the format was not compatible with my phone. There was no application that could open it.
