Default Unidentified Indicator

Please Login to Remove!

Yesterday an indicator showed up on the top of my Cingular 8700. I checked the getting started guide and it's not listed.

The indicator is the the number 1 with a circle to right with an arrowing inside of the circle pointing downward.

Anyone know what it means?

It could be a browser push or a browser notification.

I believe the indicator is for a conversation you have in your chat program - like Blackberry Messenger. You have a new message waiting in your conversation with someone.

Default Hmm

Thanks for the replys but I'm not convinced those are what it is.

I turned off browser push and it's still there.

I don't have BB messenger installed :(

Sounds like the Browser Push content icon. Go to Browser, Options, Cache Operations and clear that Pushed Content cache. See if it goes away.

yeah someone else had this a little while back, and it was the weather browser push from Blackberry, and in some cases, it is a saved web page in your message list. Here are a couple threads

Unknown icon in my 8700 Status bar

Save webpage Icon

mysterious icon?

I cleared all the information from the cache.

I also checked to make sure I have no saved messages.


No luck :(

Are you on BIS or BES? Sounds like the mail connector icon.

Because it sounds so much like Pushed Content, I will suggest one last thing. Go to your Browser bookmarks page. There will be a entire subfolder especially for pushed content bookmarks. Delete the bookmark(s) in there. Reboot. Pray...

Solved!

I don't know how it happened, but the Weather Push got turned on. The way to turn it off was to go to BlackBerry Help! | Exrtas | Push and then turn off weather push...

Weird. Thanks everybody for the help.
