Blue folder with red star ICON under the Date/Time is indicator of BB Mssngr Msg

Bifocals and others: 


I spent too many hours fishing through the BB101 over and over, plus all of the documentation.  Today I dropped by my Verizon store and they told me in about 3 minutes that the icon represented an unread BB Messenger notification.  (I open it up and all it gives me is a set of characters and says "Pending."  I still don't know what it is, but I don't really care, since I don't plan on using the service.  At least I )


Thanks for the tips everyone.  While I didn't solve this issue immediately, I learned a variety of other things while culling through masses of documentation.

Re: What is blue folder with red star ICON under the Date/Time?

Thank you so much. I had the same notification that I didn't recognize (on my BB 8330) but when you mentioned Facebook, I suddenly realized that that's exactly what the icon was. When I went into the Facebook and read the new message (which I didn't even realize was even there) the notification icon went bye-bye.

After spending 30 min on the phone with RIM support. The only solution they could come up with was to initialize and re-activate the phone and hope the icon didn't come bace. All I wanted to know was what the icon ment. Not blow the thing away re-install and hope the icon goes away.
