The OSGB maps have been dropped from Community Maps, due to copyright issues. However, they still work perfectly well. So all you need to do is copy your map cache and config file from your old phone installation, onto your new phone. I would recommend keeping a copy of your map cache on an external device, such as a PC, so that you can always recover.

I presume that you have a personal BING key?

No that is the strange thing, as far as I know I don't have a Bing key? I know the maps all messed up a couple of years ago where the largest maps would not show and would load the open map rubbing out the stored maps, but they suddenly started working again and were available last time I did a reinstall on my phone perhaps 5 months ago and as I say still appear in the list on my phone
