Unknown Status Indicator - Yellow smiley face with a red star over one eye

I have a Blackberry 8800. A new Home Screen Status indicator has appeared just beneath the yellow "Envelope" indicator which tells me how many new messages I have.

 

It's a yellow smiley face with a red star over one of its eyes. Like the new message indicator it has a number next to it indicating i've got 1 of something but i've no idea what it means and the 8800 manuals don't mention it.

 

Help would be appreciated - any clues anyone ?

Proabably a new BlackBerry Messenger contact or message, or even a yahoo message if you have that loaded to your device.

Re: Unknown Status Indicator - Yellow smiley face with a red star over one eye

Hi! I have an icon on my screen that I've never seen before. It appears whenever I get a new email message -- but instead of the one usual little envelope, it looks like a pile of two envelopes. Why the two? Anyone have any ideas? It's stressing me out! Thank you so much and happy holidays!

Re: Unknown Status Indicator - Yellow smiley face with a red star over one eye

Hi,

I got a solution for this issue...

I too ws getting this icon on my notification bar bt when I ws clicking on this,nothing ws opening up as some people said tht BB Apps is opening up...

Solution- open "messages"(not the text messages) n there u will find a notification of some application wth the same star sign(in my case it ws tarrot card reader for BB),jst click on tht and if u dnt want tht App installed then jst close it...the star sign will be gone...

Hope this will help u... :-)

with regards

Re: Unknown Status Indicator - Yellow smiley face with a red star over one eye

And apart from this thread being already 'solved', the most recent post two years ago referred to not your 'start' icon, but the double envelope icon. Still different.

 

Take care.
