    Yesterday, suddenly, I had a BBM notification. Rather than how a message looks (the BBM logo + a red asterisk), it's just the BBM logo. I went through the entire phone and there's absolutely nothing unread or anything like that.

    What could it be?

    If there are no unread messages, pending requests, or group items anywhere, pull your battery.

    u might have a corrupted database. that; or your account has a glitch in it, like I've had. call your carrier's tech support to get it resolved.

    You could also try backing up your contacts, then un/reinstalling BBM.

    I had this happen once. What my problem was, someone was trying to add me on BBM, but i'd already placed them on ignore so it wouldn't show up. What i had to do was open BBM, hit the blackberry button, scroll down to "Ignored contacts" and remove everyone I had in there. They showed up, I declined the request and it went away. I don't know if this will help you any, but it might.

    I had this problem and this soloution worked when I tried it. Backup the contacts to the phone or memory card. Remove and reinstall BBM BlackBerry Messenger <--go to this on your browser on the phone.

    Similar to what khager said earlier, it could be a re-invite by somebody that you had previously ignored.....................and they just don't get the point. Good luck.

    1. Eliminate all ignored contacts in your BBM contact list with open BBM application, click BB menu, select OPTIONS search ignored Contacts, then click EDIT, tick all PIN contacts and click OK.
    (Note: For those who never ignore the contact, you will not see the option, skip this step).

    2. After that, press ALT LGLG, then CLEAR LOG, then answer YES.
    Then turn off and unplug your BlackBerry handheld battery, remove your sim card.After that reinstall your battery without the sim card.
    Let your BlackBerry Handheld restart without sim card.Then go to the BlackBerry Messenger application, youll see whats causing BBM messenger notification.

    3. Once again, restart your BlackBerry, turn off your BlackBerry handheld.
    Disconnect the battery again. Reinstall the sim card and reinstall the batteries.
