    Smile little globe icon in top left corner?

    Advertisement



    does anyone know what this is? it just appeared on the top left corner of my blackberry and has a #1 next to it. not sure what it means or how to check it if it's some sort of message.

    ALSO, i can't seem to get my blackberry out of ABC mode and back into t9 or whatever it is....very frustrating. the ABC is displayed on the upper right corner of the phone.

    If anyone can help out, i would really appreciate it.

    THANK YOU!

    The globe means that you have a message which contains downloadable information.

    If you go under MESSAGES, you should be able to find that file that you need to download. At times it can be something from your provider, or a ringtone... (something purchased online)

    I do not know how to get rid of the ABC lock... sorry

    i get the ABC all the time, on teh upper right hand corner, even on the home screen. strange. i went to languages in options to try and change it but nothing had changed. it was in the "United States" english and "United States Multitap" for input. Hmm....any thoughts? THANKS

    moofdawg,

    Go to the Options/Language/Input Language and change the setting from English (United States, Multitap) to English (United States). That will get rid of the ABC.

    Hope this helps

    Re: little globe icon in top left corner?

    About the globe, have you signed up for any push services such as weather or other similar services? IF so go to the Messages Menu, and select View Folders, then select Browser Messages. See if there are any unopened messages there. You also might check the Browser Bookmarks for Browser Channels. And as a last option, or maybe the first, try a Cold Reboot (Battery Out, wait 15-30 sec, Battery Back in).

    Hope this helps

    to get rid of the globe icon might I also suggest, go to messages, press menu, select view folder, select WAP push Massages. Viola, they will most likely be hiding there.
