Please Login to Remove!

okay, so i've been receiving in the past 2 days. old messages.

What device and which OS are you running? Options/About and it'll say vX.X.XXX.
It won't be a virus or a trojan as BlackBerry software is written in such a way that if something in it would change it would flag an error.

There is no virus or Trojan or a BB "yet" If there were it would be all over here, the news, other forums etc.

Are these messages being received or are were they read previously, saved and now showing as unread? If they are being received, it could be an error on the the sender's device.
