Hi Privatet

 

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

 

Have you tried a Battery pull restart ? If not then do it like this device Powered ON remove the battery wait for a min. then re-insert it back . after reboot see if icon disappear.

 

Or it might be any notification from app world ,open your main message box see if any unread message is there, or Highlight a date say today  then press the menu key > Click on " Mark Prior Read "  then perform another battery pull restart as mentioned above.

What device model your using and what is the OS version? You mentioned Curve but there various versions of Curve available in the market.

 

Check the below link for knowing the commonly used icons on BlackBerry smartphones -
