Re: Unknown Icon on bb bold

I downloaded the BlackBerry Protect application. However, I decided against running it because it asked that I first disable my device memory Encryption. I do not want to invite trouble for my phone by disabling the Encryption. And so I have Protect icon sitting on top of my screen, really annoying. Should I go ahead and install the Protect? What can happen to my phone if I disable the Encryption?
I would appreciate help

I think it means that there are updates available for some of your applications.

Re: Unknown Icon on bb bold

This usually shows up when you tried to load a webpage in an area where you did not have Internet coverage.
You must be having a message in your messages folder that indicates that the webpage is now available.

Re: Unknown Icon on bb bold

Just like the other notification icons mentioned in this thread, look in your main Messages folder and find the notification and read it delete it, and the icon will go away.
