Re: Blackberry Screen Icons

Where exactly in the options do I find the BOOST option?

Re: Blackberry Screen Icons

If you are referring to audio boost, click on your media icon, hit the menu key, select options. Audio boost should be the last one.

Re: Blackberry Screen Icons

Does this have anything to do with the symbol that appears on the phone wile making a call?  It looks like a flag with stars and has a blue and a black section.

 

Thanks

Re: Blackberry Screen Icons

I'm gonna have to say no at this point. I turned it on and I didn't get the icon. I'm sure someone will know what it is. Just hang tight.

Re: Blackberry Screen Icons

I'm also new to BB and just joined the forum to see if I could find out more about this very problem.  Using the Bold and getting the same flag-type icon with stars (or squares - I don't remember which one right now) going up from left to right when calling out.  It's all greyscale, though, not in color.  I'll try Lorrie's suggestions to see if it helps, but I get the feeling from these posts that it won't.  Looked right away in the owner's manual and the icon is not listed there which I found strange.

Re: Blackberry Screen Icons

ok this happened to me too and after looking everywhere online i finally found how to fix it, what happend was, sometime when you placed a call you accidently pressed the L button (this activates some feature i did not know about until now), anyways to make it go away, place a call (voicemail is most convienent) and push the L button once the call is connected, you may have to press it again but youll notice when you press the L button the icon changes.  Push the L button until the icon goes away. hope this helps

Re: Blackberry Screen Icons

Thanks for the update on this 'L' (boost).  I had one of my users come to me this AM and ask about the blue/black rectangle icon when calling.  This took care of the situation.

Thank you SPEEDS for your answer!! You are the only person that has been able to define what the icon is, what it means, and how to remove it. I did as you said and it was removed. I have another question. I downloaded ringtones for my phone to assign to a specific contact. However, when I assign the ringer to the contact it is somehow the ringer for all calls. I think I've tried everything...let me know if you can think of anything else...and how do i change the tone for messages? That beep is driving me crazy.....Thank you again....Dawn
