Icon descritions

Does anyone know of a document that shows the icons that are on the BlacbBerry and what they do?  All material seems to be text only and icons do not seem to be a covered topic.

You and me both bud.  I haven't been able to find a comprehensive list for the life of me.

Re: Icon descritions

may not be a list of icons and features but all you have to do is play with the apps and learn them or call your carrier support

Re: Icon descriptions

It isn't an application icon - it is a non-clickable icon as phone calls are made on the top right.  It is a black square with blue bars that increase in size.  Similar to a signal strength meter, but that is on the bottom on this model.

 

I have already tried talking to my carrier and none of the Technical Support in the call center or at a store has ever seen this.  The carrier's version of this phone manual only has the most common icons.

Re: Icon descriptions

I dont have that on mine, might be a carrier thing. But you can always hide it if you dont use it. Click menu, then Hide.

As mentioned before, it is NOT an application icon that you can hide.  I didn't have it at first, now I do.  May have hit a key combination that activated this.  Doesn't effect call quality - mostly curious.  Not willing at this point to call Canada for a fee-based tech support call!

Re: Icon descriptions

What would be helpful is if BlackBerry support engineers/designers read this forums to help those whose questions can't be answered by the masses!

Hi DavidF,

 

Which carrier did you purchase your BlackBerry from? Which version of the BlackBerry software are you running?

Verizon Wireless and I just updated to v4.3.0.97 (platform 3.1.0.51) that was posted on Verizon Wireless' site on 2/28.

Re: Icon descriptions

I found the answer thanks to thorough techs at RIM.  They sent me a screen capture tool and then researched it.  It is the Enhance Call Audio found in the menu once a call is initiated.  You can boost the bass or boost the treble.
