I have also tried every solution on this thread with no joy. The icon has been there for months now - tried ignoring it, but knowing it is there when it shouldn't be is just driving me mad. Any other suggestions would be great.

Had the same problem. I had an email message that needed to be cleared, it was in my "community messages folder", I have split messages folders for work emails/ personal emails/ and sms-mms. When I originally set my BB Curve up it had what I call a "community messages folder" that all messages from all emails/sms/mms/notifications basically everything went in to, once I split the folders off for ease of access I hid the original "community" folder. I had to unhided it and mark all prior messages as opened and it cleared the notification.
Hope that helps, good luck.

OMG Thank you! I have been trying to fix this for a couple of weeks now and checking my messages helped. It would have been better for blackberry to use the message notification icon instead of the app notification icon. That really pissed me off that I would go to app world and there wouldn't be anything there to update!!!!!

this also happens to me whenever I download something, but I can now get rid of it by going to the options/messages folder ( not the SMS and MMS but the actual message folder ) and either do 'delete all - prior to today' or find and delete all the B.A.W (blackberry app world) messages. This also helped me with the little gold star with a hole in the middle to go away as well.
