Default Odd symbol

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason my bb shows the normal icon for voice mail (looks like a white cassette tape) and some weird black figure 8 locking symbol beside it. Thing is, i don't have any voice mail messages or txt messages, nor to i subscribe to BIS. I cant find any literature to explain what is happening. Any thoughts?

Try pulling the battery and see if it clears.

I would check my Tasks, Calendar and any IM programs I have installed. Just a cuppa shots in the dark.

I had a symbol like that on an old nokia and it was a fax that someone sent to me. I had to forward the message to a fax number. Shortly after it was gone.

(it was a wrong number obviously.)

For what its worth.

Sounds like a symbol for when you either skip a VM or save one...

Maybe you have an SMS voice note. I know you can send them using the voice note program in the Pearl. Don't know how they show up at the receivers end...

I'm guessing it's probably carrier-specific. I took a quick look through some information I have, and nothing that looks ANYTHING like what you have is noted.

If it's related to Voice mail, I would recommend leaving yourself a voice mail, and then listening to it, deleting and following through until the system disconnects you. This may toggle the icon.

Other than that.... wtf

Default odd symbol gone

I had the same symbol. Once I listened to my voice mail message, it is now gone. I am with Rogers also.

Voicemail gets screwy some times. Try calling yourself from another phone, leaving a message, then go to your BB and call to listen to it and delete.
