Black Line Across When Receiving A Call?

[ Edited ]

Hi Every One! I Am Fairly New To The World Of Blackberry.


Well My Question Is: Does Any One Also Get A Thin Black Line That Going Across The Top When Receiving A Phone Call By Some One Else...? Its A Thin Horizontal Line (-------) About 2mm Down From The Top Of Screen. It Only Seem To Show Up When Some One Is Calling You And You Decide Whether To Pick Up Or Ignore The Call.


So Can Some One Check For Me (Pretty PLEASE! Smiley Very Happy) If You Also Get That Line. The Way Im Thinking Is If You Can Get A Family Member Or House Phone And Call Yourself And See If It Shows Up.


I Love To Know, So If It A Defect Then I Can Send It Back To Get It Fix Or Replace While Its Still On The Warranty.


Thank You In Advance Everyone

HI and welcome to the forums!

Regading the line, that is normal.

I think instead of asking someone to search for you, search for yourself, then if you can't find it, ask. OK?



If you need more information, please ask! 

If not, please resolve the post using the options by the kudos’ star. 

Just check the post that had your answer! Thanks

Re: Black Line Across When Receiving A Call?


if I understand well, it's something that is far more developped on the 8800 models, where there is a separation of the "palmtop" : one wallpaper for business application, and one wallpaper for leisure application. I guess on the Curve there is only one leisure application that is the Phone Smiley Happy and with a white wallpaper.

Hey that line is there so that if your phone has more than one number associated with it that you would know which line is being called. So its totally normal I just called myself lol. Hope that helps. :-)
