My Device: bold 9700

Inverted/Upside down exclamation point

I have a 9700 Bold and I regularly get a notification box with an inverted or upside down exclamation point.  Occasionally, I'll get a box with a regular exclamation point, but this occurs much less frequently than the inverted one.  

 

If anybody has an answer for this, I'd appreciate your advice.  Thanks!

Re: Inverted/Upside down exclamation point

Is there anything else written in those notifications?

 

Do you have Spanish language enabled on your BlackBerry?

Re: Inverted/Upside down exclamation point

No, I don't have spanish language enabled.  I checked that before as I saw similar replies regarding that.  

 

Whatever action I'm doing (i.e. opening an attachment) is what is displayed in the box next to the inverted exclamation point.  It's like it should be a regular exclamation point, which it does sometimes, but it's not.

Re: Inverted/Upside down exclamation point

Who is your service provider and what carrier is the device branded to?

Re: Inverted/Upside down exclamation point

My service provide is Globe Telecoms Philippines.  The people there are generally quite useless.  I also just called the tech support number in the U.S. and the nice lady tried to help me out but couldn't.  This is frustrating as I can't find anybody anywhere that can assist.  Thank you for your help and advice thus far!

Re: Inverted/Upside down exclamation point

Service provider is Globe Philippines and the phone is branded to Globe, so this shouldn't create any anomalies.  I can't find this anywhere.

Re: Inverted/Upside down exclamation point

okay, crazy thought, but could my blackberry be jeopordized in anyway?  Without going into the person reasons why, could these inverted exclamation points somehow be attributed to a hacker.  Everybody's situation in life is different so no need to talk it out, but there is a possibility that one or more people could have spent time, money, and resources to infiltrate my BB, which I use heavily in setting up my new company.
