    Question Blackberry Messenger Icon

    Advertisement



    Hello Again,

    Can anyone tell me what this Icon means and what causes it.

    Or could it be this one

    I have gotten it with a couple of contacts, when trying to start a conversation. They are indicated as available and as soon as I send the first message, their icon goes from the Available Icon to this one and they are placed in the Unavailable List. They have stayed in this condition ever since. I haven't tried to reconnect with either simply because I don't know what this icon means.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Icon

    Ok, Here is some further information. Just having a chat with johnj41. It appeared that there was some delay in delivering a message, after about 30 seconds John's Icon on the banner changed to this icon.

    Once it was marked as delivered it changed to this one.

    When he read it, It returned to the normal Icon

    The ones that are still unreachable are still marked as the first.

    So, My conclusion is that the first indicates a delay in delivery, and once it occurs, the second indicates delivery, but not read yet.

    Hope this helps.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the second icon is the one my unreachable contacts show. And they stay that way till deleted and readded. 9 times out of 10 they go right back to that icon after a couple days.

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Icon

    The ones I have that have become unreachable have the first Icon. I'm in the process of trying to capture all the Icons I have seen and will create a post with all of them and my conjecture about them.

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Icon

    Having done some research to if not resolve the confusion over different Icons used on the Main page and some on the conversation banner (Top Bar on the Conversation Screen), I decided to post all the different BB Messenger Icons I have seen and there meaning or at least my conjecture for some.
    Here they are, at least as captured from my 8700c Handheld.
    Contact Available, Main Screen and Banner.



    Contact Unavailable, Main Screen and Banner.



    Contact Typing Message, Main Screen Conversation List (Sorry about the Blue Background, had this one highlighted)



    New Message from Contact, Main Screen Conversation List (Same Problem)



    These Next two are Conjecture on my part based on recent and previous problems noticed in BB Messenger.

    Contact Busy, Message Delay in delivery, Main Screen and Banner.



    Not sure about this one, but it occurs when the message was delayed, but finally delivered, but not read.




    Invite Pending, Main Screen

    Any clarification or correction is asked for and definitely welcome.

    Thanks to Pinstacker johnj41 for his help in capturing these images.

    Hope this helps someone, and someone can help me

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Icon

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~That last one is what most of my contacts look like.
    I was speaking with N8 the other day. The entire conversation his icon appeared that way.

    Thanks Erica, Already did. BBF is usually my first stop When I saw your response there from my BB, the next stop was to come here from my PC.

    I can believe what you say that the last icon is the busy icon and the previous is unreachable. As I explained there I made my conjecture on what I saw in the Chat with John. Sent message which was delayed in delivery, after about 30 Secs, the Banner Bar icon changed to the greyed out with blue clock, then when it was marked as delivered it changed to the last icon. He answered while I was in another App so don't know when it changed back to available.

    Thanks Again.

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Icon

    Anyone ever figure this one out. Because I am experiencing the same thing on my 8703e on vzw. My co-workers 7130e shows me availble, but mine shows the busy icon for him. My messages to him are delayed and his are instant. When he sends me a message his icon becomes available again, but then if I wait an hour or so and I try to send him a message his icon goes to the busy icon again. But on his my icon reads that I am availble.

    Re: Blackberry Messenger Icon

    Haven't seen any improvement. Could be network hiccups or any number of other things. I think most people just ignore it now. I know I do.
