    sometimes on my bbm it will show i have a message but i really wont. I can close all converstations and it will still show that i have a message. I even check my messages to make sure i dont have any unread. I have to do a battery pull in order to get the smily face with a number one off of my screen. I asked a buddy whose been using bbm for a while and he didnt kno either. i hope this isnt a stupid question. thx for the help

    Maybe someone was requesting you add them. Happened to me once, too.

    Yeah, I had that issue w/ my curve. Most of the time, I didn't notice a pending friend request, but sometimes it did that even with nothing. Try power cycling your phone if that doesn't work, try a battery pull.

    One of those 2 always solved it for me.

    It is probably a missed call. Just go to the call log and delete the missed calls and it will go off! It drove me crazy until I figured it out.

    Anytime I have a missed call it pops up. When I delete it in the phone log it goes away.

    It may be related to the theme I'm using.

    Actually that happened from my Curve a few times. It only got stuck if I had a missed call. After I saw the missed call, it never went away. Maybe with both, there's some kind of glitch? Hmm...weird. But a battery pull or restart always seemed to fix it for me.

    ok so i was informed earlier that battery pulls are not good advice, so maybe you should really just remove bbm and reinstall it

    you should never pull a battery out without powering down the phone first if you can help it, no. But I'm pretty sure the not a good idea part is rubbish. U can lose data you don't save etc but it isn't going to kill your device.

    From what I understand on some phones, a battery pull is the only way to clear memory again. I always did a battery pull on my curve about once a month and it seemed to speed it up a bit.

    This has happened to me only a couple times. I noticed when you are sending alot of messages back and forth it will sometimes make my red light stay on and will not turn off. Last time this happened I was talking to BMcClure937 and we were sending messages back and forth pretty quickly and it did this. Maybe too much too quick? Got me guys...
