Default Possible new GPS / BlackBerry locator icon appeared on Curve? help

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry for the possibly weird question, but I've looked online and can't find out the answer--I know from time to time BlackBerry pushes new icons onto devices like the Bing shortcut. Has there recently been some sort of GPS locator / BlackBerry locator icon that has appeared on Verizon Wireless Curves? I don't have a Curve (I still use a 7250), but my fiance has one and she freaked out this morning, waking me up before dawn, because she's accusing me of hacking her BlackBerry and installing some GPS family locator icon. I don't know what she's talking about and I haven't ever touched her device, and I haven't called Verizon to install anything remotely somehow. Any help out there would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately I didn't get to see the icon because she freaked out and left. All she said was that a new "GPS locator" icon appeared on her screen and she accused me of hacking into her device and installing it / installing it remotely without her knowledge. If my OP was too vague, which is understandable, an alternative question is does anyone track new apps / icons remotely installed on each BlackBerry model or something? Thanks again for any help available.

Nope, however I know Verizon (well CDMA) devices show a GPS Locator a cross with a circle, somewhere near the top of the screen.
This is completely normal, though I would imagine would have always been there.

Haha. This is a pretty funny. But it was always there. I'm assuming she's referring to the crossheirs on the top of the screen by the clock
