Default reset BB IM

Please Login to Remove!

SOS - My BB8820 is displaying a yellow smiley in the right hand corner indicating I have 1 BB instant message. I cleared all of those messages but this icon will not disappear. I recycled the phone by turning off and on. How can I get rid of this icon? What do I need to do to reset it?

It's a known glitch of the 4.2 OS ... Pull your battery out wait a couple seconds and then put it back in, that will solve your problem.

Unfortunately, as just mentioned, you will need to do the battery pull. Unlike a regular PC, you do not have other options.
