Disable notification icons for BBM (OS7)

Hello everyone,

 

I recently purchased a Bold 9930 and I think it is great.  However, I would like to disable some notification icons from showing up on the home screen (BBM in particular).  Is this possible?  I haven't found how to do it.

It can be done by clicking on the speaker icon below the battery indicator, clicking on Change Sounds & Alerts, clicking on Sounds For Selected Profile, clicking on Instant Messages - Notifiers and setting everything to Silent or Off. Once you've done that, press the menu key and select Save.


I hope that helps you. Smiley Happy

Okay, just a quick addition to my response. You can disable audible notification tones and vibrations but the BBM notification icon will always appear on your homescreen.


I hope I've helped you (again). Smiley Happy

Thank you for the reply.  I have figured out how to turn off the sound, vibration, and the LED but really would also like the icon to be disabled.

Unfortunately, that can't be done.  As long as you have BBM installed, you'll get that icon showing up when you have a new message.
