Hi.  I'm a new BB owner and just getting to grips with my BB Bold.  I have noticed a Icon that is by the person's name with whom I'm having an active chat with in BB Messenger.  It's not the BB Messenger icon.  It looks more like an upright battery or box that is half filled in.  I have looked all over for an answer and can't find a thing.  If you could help, I'd be most appreciative.

Thanks very much.

Where do you see this icon?


On the home screen, in the messages list, in the BBMessenger chat list?

Hi.  The icon appears on the BB Messenger List.

There is a picture of the person chatting with and the icon/symbol is by their name.  It's a upright box, half filled in.
