    Can't clear Icon

    Advertisement



    My Aunt has an 8310 and she has an icon that looks like Earth. Now i believe this is an icon for pushed content, but i can't figure out how to clear it. I went to browser options and cleared the cache and the push content, then did a soft reset and the icon still appears.

    from what she told me my Uncle was trying to DL a game as they were walking in to a Hospital and lost signal.

    What do I need to do to fix this?

    8310/ATT, OS 4.3 (whatever the latest ATT os is)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~does the icon say "media net? " You can download games, ringtones, etc from at&t using this. You can hide the media net icon by highlighting the icon, pressing the bb icon, and selecting hide.

    sorry, it's not an icon on the home screen, it's up top where you would see the smiley face for a BBM, and the envelopes for emails/text messages, and for new vm's.

    did some research... try this- go to messages-view folder-wap push message, and see if there is anything in the folder

    also- check the messages inbox for a message with a world icon- read or delete, it should go away

    thanks lalctaylor, i completely forgot about checking the messages folder. I always hide that icon cause it annoys me and i seperate my sms/mms from my emails.

    that fixed it.

    Kudos Lalctaylor!! I was going insane trying to find the answer to this question too...Rogers was sending me a free ringtune, and I've never seen that icon before. I too hide those folders and separate my mms/sms from email! Just when I thought I had my BB mastered, I learn something new from the Stack!
