    I seem to be experiencing the same problem as a lot of Blackberry users and the problem is that on my Blackberry Torch smartphone, under options>device>application management, it says that Blackberry Maps is installed and I can't seem to find the icon for Blackberry Maps. I'm using my Blackberry Torch smartphone on the Bell Mobility network in Canada. What do I do?

    go to blackberry.com/maps and email yourself the download. It's not a full download, just a lbsribbon file, that once loaded will display the icon! Weird, I know! let me know if that helps!

    I actually tried that once a few weeks ago and it just bounced back with a message saying that my phone doesn't meet the requirements. I thought it was my Blackberry's version of OS 6 that was out of date but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    Download that file with your mobile phone. It is an OTA to keep an icon installed on your phone. It shouldn't disappear even after a reboot.

    Make sure the icon isn't accidentally hidden. Select 'show all' in the home menu screen. Also the icon is different than in OS5, it looks like this now -->

    Not sure what the Canadian or other carriers allow but AT&T has something installed that deletes the icon after every reboot. I had to use the above method for a more permanent fix. BBMaps would be listed as installed but I had no way of opening the program. I installed the icon from BB, but like I stated, it would be removed after every reboot. Thanks goes out to the creator of the file for helping, I know it helped me!
