Question...

I currently have my blackberry smartphone completely synced up with my Gmail account. I have two applications linked to my Gmail (the Message application and the Email application) , one has the Gmail plug-in (Email App), and one does not (Messages App). The thing is, the Email application does not show a "notification symbol" whenever I receive a new email.

A buddy of mine has a Curve 8900 as well and he does get the "notification symbol" on both applications when he receives an email and it goes away whenever he checks that email on either application. I would like to use the Email App on my Home Screen menu, and I really would like it to show the notification symbol. How might I go about fixing this issue?

 

Thanks for the support!

what theme are you using?

What theme is your friend using?

Doe your friend also have the OS 4.6 or does he have the OS 5.0?

Re: Email Notification

There is nothing like that in the menus at all. I have scanned all over my blackberry looking for a fix and I cannot seem to find one.

Re: Email Notification

Solution that worked for me:

  1. Remove and add the email address in BIS
  2. Pull battery and restart.

The first step might not be necessary, but I haven't seen the problem again to test it.
