Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

Check your AppWorld upgrades list, anything there?

Check your Main messages list, anything there?

Look at ALL your installed applications, for any notification.

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

The notification icon on my blackberry home page is a yellow star which doesn't go. In my mail box i saw an update with the same icon which says "Advanced Ram Optimizer". I am neither able to open this mail nor able to mark it opened. When I delete the mail notification icon still remains. I have done a hard restart of my mobile 10-15 times the icon still appears, the mail comes back again and it can neither be opened nor can be marked as opened. Pls help

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

That yellow start is a notification of the new advertising message.

The Ram Optimizer is known to spam you with adveritising.

 

Delete that app.

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

The others who have reported this same issue have had a free app from that developer... perhaps it is another free app you have installed

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

On your homescreen... the star notification is located on the notification bar.

Click on that you should see the notification screen... and a line with that notification.

click on it... where does it take you?

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

As I said in my previous posts - It doesnt take me anywhere, infact it doesnt show an unread message/mail.

 

In case i remove the battery and re-insert it, the same Advanced RAM optimizer mail comes back - but neither can i open the mail nor does the yellow star icon vanish on deleting it
