    Message icon will not go away

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I have a message icon on my home screen that won't go away. I deleted all messages but it still shows as 2 alongside a closed yellow enevolpe icon.

    Any solutions?

    Tks

    try this go into your message folder open a message then mit menu, hit mark as unopened then exit go back into messages and reread the one you changed
    should do it

    Re: Message icon will not go away

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I guess it's my turn to experience this problem. I have tried each of the solutions generously suggested above: checking all folders; marking a message as "unopened" and then reopening it; and a couple of battery pulls (I left it out much longer than usual the second time, just to be sure the capcitor cleared). Sadly, that nasty little envelope remains, as does the "1 message unopened" remark on my home screen.

    Aargh. I also tried sending myself a new message, and have received & opened several others over the last few hours. The icon is stll lurking.

    Interestingly, the LED is blinking green rather than red. So at least part of the device recognizes reality.

    Thanks in advance for any additional help you experts might be able to offer.

    Sorry . . . I just realized this thread was in the 8100 forum. Mine is an 8800. I thought I had limited my search to that forum. I'll post a request there. The moderator should feel free to delete my message here.

    Thanks!

    Have you backed up lately? I always do, so the one time it happened I just restored and it went away. I just lost like a couple of emails and SMS. Other than that I'm not sure if there is an easier way. I'm super tired so I can't think right now. Hehehe.

    Interesting idea. I gave it a try, but no change. Thanks, though.

    Another good idea. I'll give it a shot tonight. Thanks.
