    IM Icon Notification on Home Screen

    Advertisement



    On a previous BB I owned, there was a IM icon that would appear on my home screen when I received an IM (similar to the icon that pops up for missed calls).

    I have switched to the 8703 by Sprint. I have modified my ringer profiles so that I get a tone notification when a new IM is recieved, but I can't figure out how (and even if) I can get the icon notifcation to pop on my home screen.

    I have my email general setting options setup so that the unread message count envelope appears on the home screen, as I assumed that might need to be active to get the IM icon.

    Any other thoughts? I am about to pull my hair out. Thanks so much.

    Hello QueenB and Welcome to the Stacks. Are you using BB Messenger? If you are, it should automatically have a small yellow pop-up circle when you get an IM. What IM program are you using?

    Hi ljbyar - I am using the BB Messenger application. It came installed on the phone and I believe it is the most current version (1.0.94)

    Thanks

    Have you tried a soft reset (Pulling out the battery waiting 10-15 seconds and put it back in)? I have heard this has helped others with the same problem. Hopefully for you it will. Let us know please.

    Thanks Felixtc. I actually searched the 8700 blog and found someone with the same issue. The thread recommended a hard reset (I think the command was Alt+Del+Num) and it worked.

    I didn't try pulling out the battery, but perhaps that would have worked too.

    Thanks again. Hope this helps others with the same issue.

    Glad to hear you're all set QueenBB. A battery pull is always a good first attempt to fix small problems.

    Hey guys. I can't get the BB messenger smiley icon off my home screen. I have no conversations going on or anything.
