The blinking envelope icon appears to be a reminder that you have your old SMSs still stored on your SIM card, and N96 needs them to be transferred to the phone memory -ether internal, mass storage or memory card- to properly display and manage them. So what you need to do is go to your menu, open Messaging, hit Options, select 'Sim Messages' and then transfer your SMSs to the N96 memory. Then do the same again & delete the SIM messages that will cure the flashing icon.

Massage icon flashing without stop when i put another sim card belong to another network it will disappear


Hi,

Try to delete some message from your inbox and free some space. The message icon will be flashing if there is pending message to be delivered to your inbox, but there are no available memory space in the mobile.

Please note that the memory for message is collective of the messages present in the outbox, inbox , folders , deleted items. Try cleaning up them.

Also, the other sim card you put might not have any pending messages due to which the message icon is no flashing..

hope it solves your problem.

I have a flashing message icon......but my inbox, outbox and every other bok is clear....it needs to stop flashing at me.....


"Would suggest checking SIM messages, these do not appear in inbox.
1. Messaging
2. Options
3. SIM messages.
Clear out the messages.
These messages are stored on your SIM card, which does not have a lot of space.

CD445 voice message icon won't stop flashing


This feature is country dependent and may not
appear in some countries.
If you have subscribed to the voicemail service
from your local service provider, icon turns
on when you have a new message in your
mailbox. After you have accessed to all the new
messages, icon will turn off automatically. If
you find that the message waiting indication
cannot be turned off by the network, you can
still turn off the message waiting indication with
your phone by the following step :

In idle mode, if voice mail waiting icon is on,
long press the redial key to turn off the voice mail waiting
icon.
Once you choose to delete the message waiting
indication, all the other handsets registered to
the same base station will turn off the message
waiting indication accordingly.

RAZR V3XX - sends my texts as MMS, rather than SMS...


I had this same problem and called Motorola for support. The solution is to clear text/mms message inbox and outbox. The default setting on my phone was to never clear the inbox but I changed that to remove messages when they are 10 days old, I have not experienced the problem since.

Outbox not opening up


I pretty sure that it's a bug in your software you can probably update the software and fix it but I'm not sure.
