Default Is my Blackberry haunted?

Please Login to Remove!

I dunno why but since 1 month I have a new icon "FT"... It appears suddenly a morning, I dunno why... It seems coming from english networks (I'm in France but working very close to Jersey/Guernsey).

Since this morning I have a new icon "Vodafone Live" but I think it's normal because she provides me a french service.

Is it normal that suddenly new icons appears?

Is it possible to delete some? For example the "FT" one...

Check under Options >Advanced Options >Service Books. See if you can find service books that are associated with the phantom icons.

If you're on a BES, an unexpected icon could possibly be someone with access to your BES doing an MDS push to your PIN or email address...

I'd suggest splashing some holy water on it, but that might trip the water sensors....
