    Circle Indicator Icon on Top of Pearl

    Advertisement



    I have noticed that there is an inidcator in the shape of a circle with a "1" next to it.

    What does that mean, I know its not the voice mail or email indicator since they are obvious icons.

    Any help appreciated since I never saw this on my 7100

    Does it look like a smiley face? If so, then its a bb messenger message.

    not sure its a shaded blueish circle, could be a smiley face but don't see any dots for eyes or mouth.

    i don't use bb messenger, though i notice its still on ?

    Since its blue, I don't think its a bb mess indicator. Those are tiny smiley faces.
    Do you have Bluetooth on?
    That is the only blue circle I have but it doesn't have a number beside it.

    It probably is a push message. I received a couple push messages and they didn't show up in the inbox. I had to do a battery pull and once I had to reregister. Hope this helps.

    Re: Circle Indicator Icon on Top of Pearl

    Newbie question: I have the yellow Smiley face with a "2" on the left side of it, and a blue globe with a "4" on the right side of it.

    How do I make these numbers go away? Read the messages (I think I have, but they are still there).

    Is there anywhere here that describes all the various icons that can appear on a Pearl home screen?

    Thanks!

    Tom - the smileys could be pending in bb messenger. You have to open messenger and expand *pending* group.

    Apparently the blue circles are feeds that you subscribed to. Not sure how to fix that.

    I believe the blue globe may be something you have downloaded online. For example if you go to Tmobile and purchase a song, they will send it to you via your blackberry. Go to "Messages" icon and you can open the file and then download.

    Have you purchased anything online like ringtones, wallpapers, games?

    I only speak from experience from using T-mobile. I dont know how other providers do it, but I would think they would do the same... if you purchase a ringtone/wallpaper/game online.

    The number means how many of those downloadable messages you have.

    By golly I think I've got it I have a Pearl (8100) and have been staring at the little blue globe at the top of the screen all day wondering what it is...and I just figured it out. I was reading the NY Times on the trolley this morning and we went through the tunnel. I lost the connection and a screen popped up asking me if I wanted to be notified when the page became available again. I said yes. Since I came out of the tunnel I have been walking around with a little blue globe (wondering what it is).

    Lo and behold it is a message from 7:40 am (also with a little globe next to it). When I click on the message I am back to that NY Times article. Wonders never cease.
