What is blue folder with red star ICON under the Date/Time?

Three beginner questions:

 

Near the top of the home screen: 

1.  I know what the "you've got x number e-mail messages" icon is near the Date/Time, but I don't know what the blue folder just like it is.  ??

 

2.  How do I access the item that represents?

 

3.  In all of the miscellaneous bits of paper & electronic documentation I received with my Curve, where does it tell me this?  (So I don't waste anyone's time with such simple things, again.)

 

Thanks for your patience, anyone reading this!

You can try the same (BlackBerry 101) from the CD that comes with your device.

Also the instruction book it's horrible. Unless you work for RIM. I have found that this site is the best for information. Just use the search box for anything you need help with. Chances are it's here.

Hi

 

 I think this may be a notification of facebook mail. I couldn't get rid of the star and blue folder after clearing all my e-mail and messages - then I tried facebook, read the mail and the icon disappeared

Re: What is blue folder with red star ICON under the Date/Time?

Hi all,

I am still learning how to use this msg board so forgive me if this is being sent via the wrong format. 

 

I use a BB Curve - connected to Verizon, which I purchased in August.  I have spent over an hour carefully going back through BB 101, but am not quite all the way through it again.  I have never used Facebook (& don't have any interest), but I suppose that could be it.  I'm travelling a great deal in the next 5 days and won't get much time to even look at my BB so I may try that when things settle down.

 

Thanks so far.

JimL
