    First go to Options... Device... Application Management... to see if BlackBerry Maps is located there. If you don't see it on the list then it is not installed. So either it is not supported in your country, or you need to install it... BlackBerry - PDA GPS - BlackBerry Maps at BlackBerry.com

    Tried, installed no change. Again in application manager can see no icon.
    Is it possible that carrier block it somehow? if yes, is there any chance to unblock it?

    At this point it would be a good idea to call your carrier and ask them policy on this.

    Let us know what they tell you.

    there's 2 things that i've done to make the icon show up.
    try installing this which is the ribbon for maps (install from your phone)
    http://mobileapps.blackberry.com/dev...?code=maps_sbi

    the second is a bit more costly but always works
    -if you have Quick Launch or some other shortcut program assign a key to bb maps. So for quick launch I go to QL options and assign a key to an application (QL). it lists bb maps since it's there but i just can't see it.
    - launch bb maps using the short cut key :-)

    Good advice Vecharo. The QL trick is nice, I like that.

    BTW, your twitter link in you sig was broken, I fixed it for you.

    install "blackberry maps installer 6.1" from app world. Its free! This will put the blackberry map icon back on your phone. AT&T block it so they can sell their maps.
