    Globe icon on Pearl?

    Advertisement



    I had to wipe clean by bb, then restore it to fix a strange glitch. The missed call icon in the upper left corner would not go away, battery pulls, sim pull, cleared out the call log, and so on. Well finally went to the extreme.

    Now when I fire up the bb, it has a globe icon in its place with the number "1" to the left of it. What is the globe for? How do I make it go away?

    It tells u that u've got a messagew with a link to the web. When u go to your txt messages it should be there.

    OK, I deleted ALL messages and I still see this globe. Could it be anything else?

    you should have gone to the site. then it would have gotten rid of it. Do you have anything being pushed to your BB?

    Re: Globe icon on Pearl?

    before I deleted all of the emails there was one globe message in there, and I did follow the link, downloaded the ringtone and when it didn't go away, I deleted the all of the messages.

    I checked to see if I was signed up for push services, but I am not. Any other clues?

    Is it just me, or does it seem strange that I have replaced one stuck icon for another?

    um...yea the Globe is something getting sent to your BB from the net. I would check everything. Maybe a battery pull?

    It's not a smiley face is it? That would be from your BB messanger.

    I got that sucker once and battery pull didn't work, but I think I was in an area with no data and i hit "save request" and I think thats what sparked the globe...i think i found it in the messages later, as a globe...was weird.
