Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

I have the same symbol and mine has a 1 next to it.  I am assuming I have some kind of new message or alert but I have searched the whole phone and cannot figure out what it is.

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

I have the same symbol and it is driving me insane. I thought that I have looked through everything but obviously I'm missing something.

This indicates that you have an application you download from App World that is calling for an upgrade.

 

It could be AppWorld itself needing the upgrade (new version 1.1.0.15 available last Friday). Many users have found that Viigo needed the upgrade.

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

Thank-you.  That is what I thought it was.  I did the upgrade/download and then rebooted, after I did all of that is when the symbol showed up. 

      For AppWorld   my status is:           Downgrade

                             installed version is:  1.1.0.15

                             new version is:        1.0.0.30

 

What does this mean?  Why is my status not "installed"?

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

The reason the update symbol is still there is because you have to delete the message(s) in your Message Folder..from the main screen go to messages and find the messages showing the circle with an arrow symbol. Delete or open those messages

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

I had nothing in my message folder....but, I did do a Hard Reboot and that got rid of the symbol.  Thanks.

Re: Blackberry storm unknown symbol

JSanders, 

 

Thanks for the screen shot.  The same symbol appeared on my BB earlier today; so naturally I got on this fourm and immediatly started searching for answers.  Your screen shot helped me to immediatly identify that this posting contained the correct solution to my problem.

 

cpruyne,

 

Thank you for describing how to remove the icon from my device.  As soon as I opened my Messages folder, both notices were clearly visable.  Once i deleted them both, the update icon was gone.

 

Thanks Guys!

 

I have left you both Kudos for a job well done!
