AOL mail icon for the home screen/ globe at the top with the #2 to the left of it mean?

Hi,

 

I just got my phone this week. I love it so far!!! I am just confused with a couple things...

 

First:

I have my work email pushed to me and I have a gmail icon just for mail on the home screen. Does AOL mail have the same kind of app? or is the AOL search Icon the only downloadable icon for the home screen?

 

Second:

On my phone there is a globe up at the top with the #2 on the left of it... Both my sister and brother have the exact same phone as me and they don't have it. what does it mean?

 

THANK-YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!

Re: AOL mail icon for the home screen/ globe at the top with the #2 to the left of it mean?

So you are using Gmail app. As far as i know there is no BB AOL app same as Gmail app.

 

But you can integrate your AOL account via BIS (http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/software/internet.jsp) and gmail account can be integrated the same way. This way your email will be push same as corporate email, no need to chk mail on the app.

 

Can you be little more descriptive about your 2nd quest?

ok when you look at the home screen a little under and to the left of where it says edge I have a globe symbol with a #2 on the left of it... I thought it was maybe a browser open or something but I dunno since I try to end everything... I looked in the manual at the desc. of icons and it doesn't even refer to a globe symbol...

 

thanks for the aol ans!! Smiley Happy

try taking battery out and put it back in and see if that goes away. i am not sure about it.

you can take a pic of the screen and post it here may be unless some one else here knows what that icon is.

Click on your messages icon > hit menu key (left of trackball) > view folder > browser messages. 

Hope this helps....
