Need help - Smiley Face Emoticon near voice mail alert icon

This icon just appeared today on my curve.  It is in the same area as the little cassette icon for voice mail and the envelope icon for emails.  What is it and how do I access whatever it is?

 

Thanks!!!

It is probably a message that someone has sent you a 'messager message' - have a look at your blackberry messager and see if you have anyone asking you to add them or for a response.

Not a problem. 

 

MMS = is picture messaging

SMS = is like simple text messages, like phone to phone

 

Not sure, but I think BB Messenger and Messages are probably the same.

 

I hope that helps!

Re: Need help - Smiley Face Emoticon near voice mail alert icon

This was spot on help! I guess I wish there was more of this information available when I set up my blackberry. 

 

I do notice that when I carry on a conversation in Messenger,  it is more like being in a chat room than being in a txt conversation. However, I do like that I can use emoticons. Can non-blackberry contacts work in Messenger? :smileyindifferent:

if you are using blackberry messenger, you can only communicate with blackberry users on BB data plan.

if you are using 3rd party apps such as live msgr, yahoo msgr, gtalk, or aim you can communicate with anyone on those accounts.

 

All of the above are free to download and install

there is a fee based software that you can download and install as well that will do all the above in 1 app except BBmsgr

This program is called Jivetalk www.beejive.com
