    Question Ghost messages

    Advertisement



    Hi all, I'm a new BB 7130 user and I have messages showing in both e-mail and SMS on the front screen but when I go to the "folder" there is either nothing there or not as many messages as it implies. I also have problems deleting some messages as it won't let me!! Not a major issue but quite annoying when it says I have messages and there aren't any there!! Don't know if anyone else has ever had this problem and been able to resolve it (preferably without having to do a hard re-set)!!

    you probably have a saved message that you never opened. in your messages click the scroll wheel and choose "view saved messages".

    Re: Ghost messages

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I have the 7130 and I mostly use the factory-included Zen theme. I have had this a few times that the homescreen indicates unread messages, but when I enter the message list, there is nothing new.

    As I typically reboot my BB once a day, I have noticed that this false indication does reset itself after a boot.

    However, try pressing the >> (double arrow / *) while in the message list, this will take you to the oldest unread message. Sometimes, there could be an unknown message lurking well in the past.

    You're in good hands with Pinstack!

    I had that problem a while back with my 7105t. I would have a negative number of emails in one of my folders, or the indicator showed that I had a message. But when I went to check them, no emails were there. After several battery pulls and an OS upgrade, I got it fixed.

    Yes this will solve the problem, but will also clean all personal data on the Device. It's a little harsh for a problem that usually is caused by an unread message hidden some where in the Saved messages or another folder.

    Be careful of the advice you accept. Be sure you know what the complete results will be.

    Hope this Helps

    Re: Ghost messages

    You DO NOT need to wipe your handheld to fix this. I get the same phantom messages every now and then. A simple battery pull always has fixed it for me. I've never had to reload the os or anything else.

    Start with the simple solutions and work up. NEVER do a wipe unless you really have to.
