    Are you saying you're missing the MESSAGES icon? I want to make sure I understand...

    If it's not hidden as you say, try switching themes. Do you see it now?

    Yes. It's the MESSAGES icon. I tried switching themes and still no icon.

    And, you made sure the 'show all' on the main screen of icons WAS / IS selected? If you receive new email, are you notified?

    The 'show all' doesn't even appear. The only options are 'hide application' & 'move application'.... which is why I don't think it's hidden. Yes... I am notified of new SMS/Email. The only way I am able to view them is through the search icon. I'm stumped.

    From the main screen
    1) Hold down the ALT key and click the trackwheel
    2) Select "Show All"

    (The icon will now show up, but it will be translucent)

    3) Scroll over to the icon
    4) Hold down the ALT key and click the trackwheel
    5) Uncheck "Hide Application"

    You can also seperate sms and emails
    Go into the messages box. Click on the date on top go into options and select general options> sms and email inboxes and select seperate. Hit save and exit.

    This is happening for me as well. I dropped my phone. The battery fell out, and now my Messages icon AND one of my e-mail accounts icon is missing as well. This is the second time it happens. The first time, I took out the battery a few times and it worked. But I've been trying that for the past hour and it won't work.

    None of the above suggestions has helped.

    Same Problem! FOUND THE SOLUTION! in my case atleast, my messages were CONSOLIDATED. I went to my MAIN MESSAGES FOLDER. went to the options, general options, and selected "SMS AND EMAIL INBOXES: SEPARATED"

    Hope that works
