Text Message Icon Missing



My phone decided to reset on its own today. After it was done loading, I noticed that whenever I got texts, I didn't get any text icon/symbol on the notification bar at the home screen. I know it's not that big of a deal, but I didn't realize how much I relied on it being present. If anyone would kindly help me that would be great! My serviprovider, model, and OS are T-Mobile, BB Bold 9900, 7.1 bundle respectively. I appreciate your time!

Re: Text Message Icon Missing

Hey flipmuziek,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


I would check to see if the icon is hidden, on the home screen press Menu>Show all.  If the icon is listed, hover the icon and press Menu and remove the checkmark for hidden.


Let me know if this resolves your issue.
