    Is anyone else having a RIDICULOUS amount of problems concerning blackberry messenger and what not?

    I can’t even find my icon anymore after reinstalling the program 5 times.
    ….any help?

  2. What you may eventually have to do is hard start your phone by leaving it on and removing the battery. after that you leave it out for at least 5 minuites then replace the battery and try again. if the icon still dosent appear, try re loading the application using your desktop. that should be able to assist you.
