Default No Blackberry messenger icon on my Sprint 8703?

Please Login to Remove!

When I receive "Blackberry messenger" messages on my Sprint 8703, it vibrates, but doesn't show any kind of notification. I didn't see anywhere in the options that I can change this. What am I doing wrong. People I know with Verizon have a notification right next to the envelope that displays for new e-mails. TIA

Try wiping the handheld. If that doesn't work, I'd say there's something wrong with the phone.

You lose everything except the os and installed programs. Try just pulling the battery and replacing it

Pulling the battery and replacing it does not wipe the handheld, that is accomplished in DM9 desktop manager) and that most likley does not need to be done for this issue; however puiing the battery does a soft reset, data intact, and may fix the issue...
