"Ghost" Notifications - notifications but nothing has happened

Since 2.0, I get notifications in the form of the Red Glow in top-left corner - but nothing has happened (no new Email, Calendar event, nothing on my BlackBerry, no apps running). This happens consistently throughout the day, with a variable frequency (every 30s, every few minutes, etc). 

 

Does anyone else get this? Michael - have you guys ever had reports of this?

Hmmm seems the screenshot didn't come through, make sure though you are running the latest versions of all the clients.

Re: "Ghost" Notifications - notifications but nothing has happened

I had this issue with OS1 through bridge, but that was due to the fact that it was read on the tablet it still was unread on gmail, rereading the email would remove the notification. This is all cleared up now in OS2 for me, now if we could combine the facebook messages in to one message instead of 30+ would be neat :Clap:

Yep I occassionally get same issue. Could happen with native email client or via BB bridge emails or bbm.

 

Sometimes you have to tap on an several times to open as well. Other times I have opened an email but it still says it is unread even after opening the message several times or closing the Native messages app. Simular issue when reading BBM's through BB bridge also.

Here is a YouTube video of this problem:

Notice that it continually notifies me of nothing.
