Unrecognised Icon on 9700 home screen

Apologies if this has been asked before but I can't find an answer anywhere.

I have recently notice a small red icon next to the carrier (Orange) name at the top of my 9700's home screen.  On close examination it appears to be a house icon.

I can't find reference to it in any of the booklets or by Googling.  Can anyone help?

(I've also noticed that when I'm in the office it goes white).

Re: Unrecognised Icon on 9700 home screen

Hello TonyMatthews,


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

The icon you are referring to looks like to be the indicator of the UMA home zones that is a feature of your wireless service provider. To determine why it changes color I would recommend contacting your wireless service provider.

 

Thank you

Re: Unrecognised Icon on 9700 home screen

Hi,

 

I have a couple of icons that unsure of... does anywhere know where u can actually get a list of all poss icons.. r there really that many that there is too many to list.

 

Every other phone I have had they always cover this in manual but blackberry has a very minimal manual that does not help too much.

 

The icons are topleft a speach bubble with a number left hand side (at the moment this is one)

 

and also a icon of the world (the same symbol as the internet symbol in menu but this one is smaller) with a number on the left hand side of this.

 

pleas eplease can someone help me out or at least tell me if there is a websie of manual that exisits with full user info in.

 

Kind regards

Hello,

 

There are many different icons that can show up as notifications on your BlackBerry smartphone. The speech bubble you are referring to is a instant message notification. It can be any one of the IM applications that you use.

 

The globe indicator appears when a saved web page has been updated or altered. Check out the following knowledge base article here: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB10441

 

Thank you

Re: Unrecognised Icon on 9700 home screen

I have an unknown icon on my home screen which is a black circle with a downward left arrow in the middle of it and a small red dot with a white asterix at the top of the circle.

 

Can you advise how to get rid of it ?

 

thanks

Sounds like you have an update for an app you downloaded from BB App World.

Hi,

 

Is the flower green in color. It might be an instant message from ICQ. Check if you have that installed under options-advanced options-Applications

 

Thank you
