    BB MESSENGER NOT SHOWING NOTIFICATIONS OR ALERTS ON THE MAIN SCREEN.. HELP PLEASE!

    Advertisement



    Firstly, I would like to say how thrilled I am with my new Blackberry, if I was to rule the world, I would make it a law that everyone was on Blackberry!

    When I receive PIN messages through Blackberry Messenger, my phone sounds, however, it does not display an icon or notification on the screen, in other words, if my phone is on silent, or don't hear it, to see if I have any new messages, I have go to into BB messenger.

    I have a few friends with the same phone (8707v - vodafone), and it isn't the case for them.

    Does anyone have any idea? I would be most grateful & appreciative for any advice.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    ...are you using the Zen Theme with the 'latest' version of the OS? A couple months ago MelissaOx and I installed the latest OS, and the Zen theme and we would not get notifications...

    I just reverted to the previous version...

    I actually don't even have BlackBerry Messenger installed on my 8700 -- anyone know where I can grab it OTA?

    Also, you might try turning the Berry off, pulling out the battery for a few seconds, then putting it back in and turning it back on.

    Thanks everyone for your advice and welcoming me to pinstack!

    I tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, no difference.

    Any idea how I can revert to the previous version of the OS so I can get the notifications ?

    Thanks again,

    Mark

    This may sound weird but .. I had this problem with my 7290, AFTER I downloaded the stand alone version of Yahoo Messenger. I am not sure what the issues was/is (i still have the 7290 just for backup) but I no longer get BBMessenger notifications, because Yahoo Messenger's notification pops up in same spot as BBM used to. If you have that stand alone of yahoo messenger, try deleting it and see if that works to bring back bbm's notifier on your screen.
