    this is a marketing gimmick someone came up with over at blackberry to sell apps.

    to get rid of it,
    go to your messages inbox
    look for a message with a black star beside it
    if you click on the message, it will take you to app world to buy the silly app
    delete the message,and the star goes away.

    some dumb spam marketing move by someone I guess.

    @ummusabbar & @BlackBerryGirlsMum: That star icon is a remnant from an installed theme (girly theme that is), that one particular icon stays behind even though you have changed the theme.

    I haven't yet test it if you un-install the theme will make that star icon go away for good or not, please try it and then let us know in this forum.

    Good luck!

    Its one of those annoying apps pushing you spam, there are plenty of threads regarding this. Just delete the ad from your messages list but I'm sure they will push you more junk later.
