    is it a globe? if it is then look through your messages and look for the globe. It's a push web message. Just open it and then delete it. Or do a Mark Proir Open. I think that should get rid of it also.

    just look through your messages thats all I can think of or try your BB messenger. I'm not sure what AT&T sends you guys.

    Have you ever had your PTT enabled with AT&T and then turned it off. My mothers phone has an icon like that because we use to have the PTT enabled but turned it off. My Pearl does not have it though. I am wondering if that might be it. If so the AT&T rep I talked to said it would not come off even if you no longer have PTT enabled, weird huh. But where there is a will there is a way. Good luck.

    the light blue sphere is att push to talk... sometimes it initializes on its own but won't charge you unless you use it.... i'm a former nextel 7520 user so when i came to att and got the pearl i had to get the ptt from them. hope that helped

    This just means that the Pearl is push to talk enabled. It is possible for you to activate the PTT because it has software on it that enables it. I will always be there. If you activate the PTT service it will change to the happy face or do not disturb indicater. If you had say an ATT 8525 its a pain cause its always there and whenever there is another alert the WM5 changes it to a differant icon.

    But yeah the blue ball is a good thing.
