No red asterisks anymore

[ Edited ]


I don't know what has changed, but suddenly I receive no red asterisks to notify me when a new message arrives.  I get a tone (handy if I'm there) and an LED light.  But when I open thinngs up, I have to go hunting through two emails and my SMS to see what just got updated.  I used to get a red asterisk to show me where the new message was, but no more.






Hey THANKS for the answer.  It's so embarrassing that I went through that menu scores of times and kept missing that ONE item.  Sure enough...it's fixed.  And I got the correct answer in 5 minutes from posting!  Big Thanks! -DallasTerry
