BB Tour 9630 :: How To Get The New Message Indicator Off The Top Of My Home Screen
Jan 4, 2010
I have the BB Tour for Verizon. I am pretty new owner of a BB. I have never had one before so I am not sure how to get the new message indicator off the top of my home screen. The thing is I don't have any new messages. I had deleted all the messages in all of the folders. I did a battery pull and it still won't turn off.
I got my tour about 6 weeks ago, and am learning something new everyday. I lovingly call the phone "my smarter than me phone" I have used this forum alot to answer questions, and for the most part am pretty comfortable with the phone now.
The message indicator on the home screen sometimes displays to the left of the time, and sometimes to the right. I thought at first it was an am/pm thing, but 10 minutes ago (8:41 ayem now) it was on the right, and now it just jumped to the left.
My call log shows missed calls, but never tells me I have a new voicemail, nor is there any icon on the screen that indicates there is a new voicemail waiting. Can someone please tell me how to get notified that I have new messages? Presently I'm having to call my voicemail just to see if there is a message.
I have an unread message icon that cannot be deleted. This has only started happening since I downloaded the newest VZW 5.0 patch. I know this thread has been done for multiple reasons but I have tried all the normal fixes.
I'm new to Blackberry and just learning. I've noticed that some of my SMS texts that are sent have a "D" in the check-mark. Can someone let me know what it indicates? I have not changed any settings and not all my outgoing messages contain the "D."
How to get rid of the new message indicator from the home screen? when I get a new message and read it, the little red asterix does not go away until you move the icons in the applications screen and then it fails to show once you've done that.
I am new to blackberry and loving it. I miss having my calendar on my homescreen. Is there a way to customize the home screen? Would like to see upcoming calendar events and shortcuts to all the things I use regularly instead of just the 6 things on the bottom.
i just upgraded from an older Curve to the Tour.. I want to put my calender events on the home screen but cant figure it out.This would be much appreciated as I cant live without my calender events on the home screen...
I have a BB Tour and am running OS v188.8.131.522. I would like to have a folder on my home screen that shows ONLY MMS messages, not SMS with MMS. I have searched this forum and Google but have run out of patience. I see plenty of solutions to separate email messages from SMS/MMS, but this is not what I want to do. I know that I can go into View Folder and navigate to the MMS Inbox folder, which shows only MMS messages. So, how can I get a shortcut to this on the home screen?
i saw on kevin's Internet video about the blackberry messenger stress test that it said "crackberry.com" at the top where it would normally say the network's name. is there a way i can actually enter in what i want or at least have the network's name on there? it's really annoying to have that blank space there at the top of the screen. it looks awkward for me.
The new email indicator on my Blackberry Tour will not go away. I have no unread messages or missed calls. I've tried a battery pull, a reboot, marking prior messages read, and changing the message count settings. It won't go away.
This morning when I turned on my phone I had my usual email indicators, but also there was a really tiny one near the ringtone indicator. Its a small flower (five pettaled) with the red asterix indicator (like when you have a new mail/sms). I have looked at all my apps and message folders and I have no clue what this is for!
I recently owned the curve 8530 and liked the setting to make the messages appear in bubble format rather then line separated. The Tour that i have now does not have that option. Does anyone know if it exists due to an OS upgrade, or anyway else i can get sms to display in bubbles?
I plugged my bb into the wall and for a little bit it was charging fine but then the symbol disappeared. I unplugged and plugged back in which made the clock pop up so I know it connected right. But its still not charging. I turned the charging indicator led on with berrybuzz and the light didn't turn on when I plugged it in.
Meterberry says the temp is 111 degrees. I don't know what the 'normal' ranges are. I'm still under my 30day warranty so do I take it back? Is anyone else having this problem? Its done this before and it eventually charges but something is going on....
Im a breand new BLACKBERRY user "TOUR 9630" purchased last week. As I hate to wear my glasses, is there any way to enlarge the FONT on the HOME SCREEN? Or is there a good "THEME" that someone can recommend that will allow me to change the FONTS on the HOME SCREEN? I have enlarged the FONTS on the rest of the screens ( emails, text's etc) but am stuck with the microscopic fonts on the home screen.
I just got a new blackberry tour and I'm having a heck of a time moving new apps that I downloaded to my homepage. I downloaded three apps and was able to move them to the homepage with no problem by clicking the blackberry button and selecting "move to home". That is very clear and I understand the concept.
But for some reason I can't move any other apps. I can't move my facebook app because there is no option to "move to homepage" or "move". Pandora and all of these apps are located in My world in the Black Berry app world.Can anyone help me? maybe I'm missing something simple.
However when I connect to BB desktop manager the phone is identified with the correct PIN. The fact that it is zero at home>options>status is causing some of my apps to fail to work. This just happened today evidently when I sync'd the phone to my desktop. I have only loaded one OS update, and that was weeks ago. The particular app is question is Shortcut Me
My tour beeps as if there is a message but theres no message. Ive been having this issue for over a week. Please tell me that there is a fix for this because it is annoying and I don't know if I am missing the message or if its just a phantom message.
I am wondering what is the advantage or necessity of having the Message folder when it appears that it is more or less a duplicate of what is in your email folder. Is there some purpose or advantage to having this folder that I am missing?
I deleted all my SMS messages (and I think I deleted two of them without reading them)so I have the visual alert saying that i have 2 unread messages, but no messages. How do I reset this number or this alert?
Why are my recieved sms messages an hour behind my acual time zone? My send messages show the actual time, however, when I recieve a message from someone in the same time zone its always an hour behind.
Since last week, after I recieved an "event reminder" e-mail from a co-worker, I can NOT get the 1 new message symbol off of my phone. I have gone through ALL of my message folders for days now. I have pulled the battery 5 times. The stupid yellow message symbol with the number 1 WILL NOT GO AWAY! I don't know what to do.
Oh and another thing... after that day, when I try to put my phone on "silent" it still vibrates, and when I put it on "vibrate" it makes sounds!
I see a lot of publicity pics of the Tour with the bridge splash screen shown, thought I'd like it for a background pic...(My splash screen is the Verizon check from the "Verizon Zen" theme).I have a custom background pic for my Tour, several actually, but was wondering how to get the bridge pic from the "Precision Zen" theme so I could use it as a background pic..Also - Is it possible to "save" and restore a loaded ROM theme??? Like, if I had the AT&T or T-Mobile "Zen" theme, could I load it into my Verizon Tour??? And if I could find a like-minded soul who wanted to swap Tour themes (Verizon, Rogers, T-Mobile, AT&T, etc), how would I swap or add a branded theme?
Just to see the bug-eyed look on my VWZ store tech the next time I pull out my VWZ Tour and ask her a question.
I seem to have this unusual status indicator on my home screen. It has seem to appear after I did an upgrade one of my application. It has the number 1 with a golden globe shaped to it. Can someone please inform me what that status indicator means.
