Unknown icon on homescreen

Hi!  I'm new to forum although i've had my bb 8520 for 2 years. Recently an unknown icon has appeared on my homescreen, still in the dark as to what it is, despite extensive research ( probably not in the right places!) It's in the form of an orange-yellow (5-point) star with same black star inside... any ideas?? Thanks!

HI BeeDee


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



It might be a notification from BlackBerry World related to any app or an Update to any apps you have on your device , What happen when you click that notification icon ? Or On your Homescreen Open your main message box scroll down and search each messges  you will find the same notification message on there , delete it from there . Then perform a Battery pull restart by removing the BATTERY while your device is Powered On , wait for a min then re-insert it back. after reboot see if you're able to ger rid of that Notification .
