Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

You probably have some sort of messaging app installed and someone has contacted you.  

 

For example, VoiceMail = o_o,  TXT and Email = an envelope

each application has it's own icon and a number appears to indicate the number of unread messages.

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

Check in your Instant Messages, or perhaps you have another app installed that gives you notifications (ie, FaceBook has an "f" icon)

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

Thank you, but it was something to do with a saved web page in the browser.

 

Thanks for your help

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

Here is the definitive answer. This is a Browser message indicator.

See here how to get rid of it:

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

I can't find a "messages" folder in my main window.  I have email messages and Instant messages, but no plain "messages".  I checked the browser window, the email windows, and the intstant messages for any messages that have a globe next to them... and there are none.  But I still have the globe.  I do know I saved some webpages when I had no service, but still can't figure out how to delete them.  The browser window doesn't have anything to show this.

 

Can you please give more details or screen shots as to exactly how to remove this icon?

 

thank you.
