Saw this today and just wanted to give a solution to those looking for it.
Sometimes, if the BlackBerry device calendar gets out of synch with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, or the calendar becomes corrupted, you’ll need to reset the Calendar database. You may attempt to look through the BES software for something about the calendar app, but there’s really nothing there to help you.
Here’s how to reset the calendar and get the calendar to start synching again:
- 1. On the BlackBerry Smartphone, open the Calendar application.
- Click the Menu button and click Options.
- Set the Wireless Synchronization option to No.
- Click the Menu button and click Save.
- Set the Wireless Synchronization option to Yes.
- Click the Menu button and click Save. Turning wireless calendar synchronization on and off will reset the calendar database on the BlackBerry Smartphone.
- Create a calendar entry in Microsoft Outlook and verify that the entry wirelessly synchronizes to the BlackBerry Smartphone.
I saw this yesterday. This can happen (and is reported quite heavily) when a major update is performed on a Blackberry device. It was reported to me that the Internet browser had uninstalled. After a bit of research it was learned that the browser component still existed on the device, just that it was missing from the Apps screen.
To get the icon back do one (or both) of the following:
1. With the BB still powered "on", remove battery from the device
2. Leave the battery out for at least 30 seconds
3. Replace battery and let the device reboot
- Step two: (if step one did not solve issue)
1. From the device go to Options
2. Select Advanced Options
3. Select Host Routing Table
4. Select menu, then 'Register Now'

Looks like the Midwest isn't the only thing that's freezing up this holiday season: many people are reporting their 30GB Zunes are spontaneously going on the fritz as well.
The symptom is reported widely on discussion boards about Microsoft's music player, including Zune.net, ZuneUser.com, and ZuneScene. With the problem, people's Zunes reboot but freeze when the startup status bar reaches 100 percent.
Some users reported the problem happened at exactly midnight PST, at the very beginning of the last day of the year, leading some wags to call the problem Z2K after the Y2K problem that was widely feared to cripple the computing industry when computer clocks moved from 1999 to 2000.
"It reset itself. I don't know why," said one owner who posted an account of his Zune problem on YouTube after reporting it on the Zune.net forum.
Microsoft didn't immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday morning.

The patent-pending Checkthrough™ Bag looks and functions like a high-end business case, but is designed and rigorously-tested to be "checkpoint-friendly," so you can run it through airport x-ray screening without removing your computer.*
The bag opens and hinges in the middle to separate and isolate the laptop compartment from the rest of the bag. For initial, immediate visual reference, the laptop can be seen by the inspector through a clear, quick-recognition window that is exposed when the bag is unfolded. With the window facing up, the bag is sent through x-ray screening. The design of the laptop compartment is such that the image presented to the screener is the same as if the laptop were removed and placed in a bin. The Checkthrough bag and all of its contents can be carried securely with or without the hinge zipped shut, so it can be readied in line, prior to screening. Once through, the traveler can simply pick up the bag and go, zipping it back up on the move or at the gate.
*It is the intention and expectation of all involved in the “checkpoint-friendly” bag program that once fully implemented, the process will move smoothly and that suitably designed and constructed bags, properly packed and used, will move through the system efficiently as planned. However, in all instances, screening personnel always have the right to require laptop removal, secondary screening, or any other measures deemed necessary to ensure travel security.
