    So i am on my 2nd storm, and this one seems to be working flawlessly except for one major inconvenience. My mailbox/message icons do NOT display the little red star on them to tell me i have a new message. A new message icon appears on the top of the phone display, but i have to go through each box to figure out where the **** the message is. The strangest part about this is that in landscape mode, the star icons DO appear on the message boxs. It is only in portrait/home screen that these icons do not appear. And yes, i've done like 10 battery pulls. Any suggestions? Is there some crazy option somewhere i should be messing with?

    Dunno what's going on with the red stars but r u actually getting messages and if u r, and rom ur post it seem as of I r, could u not just look in the messages folder to find the message as opposed to all you email boxes separately?

    Sure a solution will be forthcoming in some posts here. Good luck!

    Same issue here. Mine was on default.

    So I set it to 4 x 4, then saved, then put it back and saved.

    Ill see if that helps.

    OK OK OK .... NOW I GET IT !!!! WOW !!

    This has to be posted for everyone to see!!!! I am on my 5th Storm! A few different probs (screen click) and then got a great one and the mic broke!!! With all of them I have had this problem with the red star icon!!!

    Last night it worked in the store. Later it did not work. 3 phones in a row for sure!!! So I started thinking it MUST be a setting I am doing.

    I am soooooo happy I found this! I read something like this last night, but did not grasp it! I guess I had to sleep on it.

    THIS IS THE ISSUE!!!!! It fixed mine right away, and explains why it continued on so many phones as I always changed that layout to 4x4 !!


    RIM should really thank you and make this clear to everyone! Another poster is on his 5th for this reason!!!!

    Man, I cant believe this site! You guys are awesome.
