Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

Open your main messages folder and press the U key... does that take you to any remaining Unread message?

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

I am able to locate the message - but neither am i able to open it, nor am i able to "mark it opened", when i delete the message the star icon remains on the screen. When ever i restart my phone (taking the battery out and re-insert) - the message comes back still in a non-readable format.

 

I dont have any 3rd party/free applications installed on my phone

green "S" icon

hi. can anybody tell me what this icon is for? it probably is from a third party app, since it's not listed on the common icons list but i'm not really sure. all i know is that it appears at random ever since i started installing apps using the BB App World. i can usually get it to go away by doing a soft reset on the phone, but sometimes it still remains after a reset.

thanks.

Re: green "S" icon

Ouch, I can't read the wording underneath that notificaiton icon... can you?

Got a magnifying glass?

 

It is a third party app, I just don't know which.

Re: green "S" icon

thanks for replying. i can't make out the wording either, it's that small. i'm not even sure if it's letters, it just looks a lot like squiggles. i did a reset earlier, so the icon's gone now, but next time it comes up again, i'll try to magnify it.

Re: green "S" icon

Just an update: I just found that the aforementioned icon is a notification of an advertising message from SRID software.

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

I have a yellow unread message icon constantly on my phone. Its a Bold 9900. Driving me nuts.. I have deleted all messages on Fb & in my hotmail folders. Checked yahoo & theres nothing in that old account either. No missed calls or voicemails either. What could it be?

Re: Home screen icon & notification symbols

Perhaps unread unopened saved message?
