I've only ha dthe pleasure of my Storm for 5 days now and am finding it relatively easy to work my way around. Unfortunately a screen icon has appeared and I haven't got a clue what it means! In the centre of the screen at the top underneath the date line a yellow globe icon has appeared with the number 1 next to it on it's left side. The globe lookis like a browser icon but I have gone through the browser selection, application selections and e-mail selections and can find nothing. If I have a new e-mail/SMS/MMS an envelope appears and the selection button has a red start appear in the corner to further notify me that something new has come in but there is nothing to say what this globe is for, nor can I find any reference to it in the manuals. Can anybody tell me what it is for? Many thanks
p.s. Does anyone know when we're going to get applications/games/themes etc that are available for this phone? Plenty for the others but nothing for the storm so far!
EDIT: Split from another thread and changed title

I know a globe icon with a 1 next to it is a saved webpage. Also, if you try and acess a site were there is no coverage you can get in to automatically download the page once your enter a area with data coverage to view later.
It will go away after checking your messages folder and open the notification (i think)

Haven't looked today, but as of yesterday, Plazmic (a division of RIM) still hasn't released the tools for makeing the Themes. I think there may be a way to hand generate a theme, but who want's to do that? On the Programing side, going to use weatherbug as an example as I think they have a few staff programers. They just came out with Storm app a few weeks ago, so I think for smaller developer groups were still going to be in a bit of a wait mode.

Hi sparky572 and welcome to the forums!
Go to the messages queue, menu key, view folder.
Look in each folder including WAP push and browser.
This will allow you to find the message.

Small, yellow globe appears on main screen, with a number next to it.
Press and start your messages icon
Press Blackberry Menu button
Find and press "Browser Messages" in the list of folders shown.
There, you should find the number of messages indicated next to the yellow globe icon appearing on your main screen.
