Yahoo Instant Message Indicator

I have a Yahoo Instant Message indicator (smiley face with the # 1 beside it) shows at the top of the screen along side of where other indicators appear such as new email, text message, voicemail - I'm thinking this is an indicator for Yahoo instant message. I only used the instant message in the browser and on my desktop. Although I have no active messages this indicator still appears ... how do I get rid of it??

Re: Yahoo Instant Message Indicator

found solution on another posting ... wasn't searching with the right words on my first attempt....


- it is not a Yahoo instant message


It indicates a message or notification in the BlackBerry Messenger application.

Open Blackberry instant messenger and there should be a message there.
