    I changed around my 5 icons on my home screen today and moved the email icon to put another one on top. Now the email icon is completely gone and my phone isn't notifying me when I get an email?!?!? What went wrong? And how do I get my icon back?

    It isn't lost. You just basically moved it to another folder. What icon was it you were moving it on top off?

    oh my gosh...there were a few that i was moving around. The one that is gone was the envelope with a globe on it...i still have just an envelope icon, which handles the SMS and emails and missed calls. I basically just moved the other envelope from being on the top (the main 5). Is there any way to know where it may be?

    Okay, depending on what Theme you are using, you will just have to open your icons one by one to know which one since I do not know your theme.

    For as an example, you could lose track of your icons if you really don't know what you are doing. As simple as moving.

    Figure 1. Shows my current set up.

    Figure 2. Shows that I am trying to move my "Messages" icon

    Figure 3. Icon "Messages" is selected (as you can see the status below "Moving Messages

    Figure 4. Moving "Messages" to another location. This time is it a Folder Icon which house different apps or icons. Status shows "Move into Email"

    Figure 5. "Messages" Icon is gone and the "Email" Icon still on the same location.

    Figure 6. But when I open my "Email" icon, I see that my "Messages" icon is located at the very last. It wasn't lost or stolen just moved to a different folder.

    Just move the lost icon on top of the folder with an "up arrow". That will move it to your homescreen.

    I am a newbie too - and I understand how the icon is hidden - but how do I open up each icon to see if the PROFILE icon is living there? I tried the menu key and the tracker ball. Neither seemed to do the trick. I tried Alt+Trackball to show all and that didn't work either. Any thoughts?

    Hi, Maybe someone could tell me how to add and subtract icons. I want to add a Google Icon and a Google Calendar Icon.

    Anyone have any info on slingbox for the Blackberry?

    Well each icon is a seperate application. So basicallt you just want to download the google app.

    I saw your wall messages to a lady that was in distress about her icon disapearing, when in fact she accidently moved it somewhere.

    I have an issue - I have downloaded a theme from crackberry.com using my BlackBerry Bold. It was the Wolvereine one to be precise! When I activated this theme. My SMS icon has been automatically removed from desktop. I have checked every folder & its not there! When I go back to the original standard BlackBerry theme, it reappears..! Also my girlfriend has the Curve, she downloaded the Tweet theme from the same site & the same icon has gone too!! Once again I checked all folders on hers. Please help!!!!!!!!!!

    Many thanks,

    I haven't been here for over a year! So be patient with me

    Let me clarify something. You lost your SMS icon from your Desktop? or Homescreen? Depending on the theme designer's preference, they will combine SMS and Email messages under one message box. So to make sure that they are separate, follow the setting below. Overriding is always easy.

    Open your message inbox by clicking on the Message icon. Hit your Menu button and select Options. Under General Options, select the option "separate" so this will always override the theme settings. So even if you change themes, this setting will always override the pre-defined settings of the active theme.

    Hope this solve your issue. Otherwise, post again
