Re: Unknown Icon on bb bold

Thanks for this explanation.  I was going nuts trying to get the new message icon off of my homescreen.  Finally got it off when I deleted a browser message.

Re: Unknown Icon on bb bold

I have an icon that just popped up on the home screen.  It looks like a phone and is located between the volume/ringer icon and the timestamp.  I have no text, voicemail, or other msgs.  I can't find a pic of this icon in any of the Blackberry Bold 9650 manuals I've looked in.  Please help!  I can't get rid of this thing.

Could be a missed call notification.

Thanks for the post, but there's nothing in my call history that I missed.  Thanks again!

Re: Unknown Icon on bb bold

Look in your main Messages list or SMS list for the Missed Call notification.

And, it might not be a missed call, just guessing here by your description of the icon.

If you could post an actual screen shot, it would be helpful.

Re: Unknown Icon on bb bold

Here's the screen capture of the icon.  It's the one that looks like a phone.  I've checked every msg log I can find and nothing so far.

Why are you unable?

 

Read the instructions in my link above to post a screenshot. What part of those instructions are tripping up over?
