    Strange indicator

    Advertisement



    Sorry to ask another silly question but I recently text O2 with a promotional text to which they replied they would send me a link to a barcode so I can gain access to VIP tent at the Wireless Festival in Hyde Park next week.
    Everything is fine apart from what looks like a video icon in the top left hand side of the screen. Never seen it before and, after checking the Pearl quickstart manual, I cannot find it in there either. I've looked through the folders within the SMS/ MMS/ Missed calls etc and cannot find any new messages so was wondering... what the bloody hell do I need to do to check what it is and how do I access it!?

    Cheers in advance,

    Juddie

    So what does it look like? A globe, envelope, envelope with a triangle?

    oh that's a voice mail....see if that is it.

    Check your voice mail and then post back.

    Nope - not a voice mail... it was empty... check the pic -



    I'm sure it has something to do with the message I sent to my telecoms provider but don't know where to check.

    nope thats the voicemail.
    sometimes the indicator will hang around. happens from time to time
    call, leave yourself another voicemail then delete, the indicator should go away.

    Weird...looks like a voice mail.
    Maybe a battery pull will get rid of it?

    Re: Strange indicator

    I'm not convinced - I've never had that indicator come up in the month that I've had the phone until today - when I didn't have any new or saved messages in my voicemail inbox. My wife has exactly the same phone and we both text this special number so am certain it's some sort of mms/ wap file but cannot find either.
    Any other thoughts?

    Re: Strange indicator

    a battery pull or running softreset will remove the ghost icon

    Yeah that definitely is a voicemail alert. Your pearl may have misunderstood something they tried to send you that would normally have worked on other phone models. It's a long shot, but perhaps...
