    Can anyone advice on 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.

    Oh, that happens all the time.
    Sometime, just leave it alone. It might go away on its own.
    Or try doing a battery pull.

    Try doing battery pull. If it always does it, updating the OS would fix it.

    Search your messages for "Unread", it may be that you have one somewhere that is not showing.

    I don't know why people think they need to "update" their OS every time a problem occurs. Ask yourself this real quick shaqeer1, have you downloaded any themes and are you currently using one now? Are you running any apps that constantly run and update every so often.
    If you have answered yes to any of these then you need to stop using either, switch back to the stock theme and delete the 3rd party app. pull the batter for at least 45 seconds and then restart. hook it up to the desktop manager and let it update on its own, after that do another batter pull for 45 seconds and see your results,,, oh also before you do all the battery pulls try deleting all messages and missed calls and such also check to see if you have email.

    Third party apps are any YOU put in the phone. Yahoo Messenger, Gmail app, Yahoo app.

    Stock themes are the Precision themes that are default on the Berry.

    If you've got BB App world installed, check that. I had to delete that dang program. It kept upgrading and draining my memory. It'll show a message icon looking thing on the home screen if it needs to be updated.

    Also check your saved messages. Sometimes if you save a message but don't read it, it disappears from the regular screen but still shows an icon as it needs to be read.

    Edit - to get to saved messages BB button --> Messages (the envelope) --> BB button --> view saved messages
