Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

I have an icon on my home screen which i have never seen and it is also not listed under BlackBerry Notification Icons. It is a little smiley face, but not like the usual yellow ones. Please let me know how I can attached a screen shot.

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

Is the icon smiley face also yellow? Yahoo messenger?

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

Hi, i have woken up this morning with 2 annoying symbols on my phone and i have no idea what they are! Both look like minature versions of the voicemail icon but one has 2 dots above it and the number 8 next to it and the other has 3 dots above it and the number 3 next to it! I do not have my voicemail on ( I have specifically asked Tmobile to turn it off ) but following a call to them yesterday I received a text message showing my voicemail number which I thought was weird!! Having spent forever trying to get through the first time rather lazily i could not be bothered to try to contact them again. As well as the 2 aboVe symbols I have got 3 voicemails "apparently" but it won't let me listen to them!!! Gggrrrrrrrrrrrrr I know it's only really annoying but it really does bug me when things clog up my screen :smileysad: Any help would be appreciated, thank you x

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

I received a software update the other day and just tonight I had a notification symbol I've never seen pop up. It is a white square with what looks like a heart rate line through it in purple. Any ideas?

BlackBerry Application Resource Monitor
Go to Options > Device > BlackBerry Application Resource Monitor and see what it says.
