From the R10 user's manual:

From time to time DIRECTV may send you messages about updates to your service and other important notices. These messages are important, useful, and easy to find. When your DIRECTV® DVR receives a new message, a message icon ( ) appears on the channel banner and in DIRECTV Central.

To read a message:
1. From DIRECTV Central, select Messages & Setup.
2. Select Messages.
3. Select the message you want to read.

Use the CHAN DOWN button to see text that does not fit on the screen. When you are finished reading a message, select Done or Delete Message. Selecting the message icon in the channel banner will take you to your list of messages. The message list will display “No Messages” if there are no messages to read.

You can download the full user manual for your R10 here.

There's a little symbol for an envelope -- how do I retrieve the message?


Envelope usually indicated a text message. Usually, if you have unread text messages your little envelope will have a number one or number two, etc in red on it.

You will need to go to your text message icon to open your text message screen.. It might be called *Inbox* but it's not email only text or SMS messages.

You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

My phone does not have any problems, I was just wondering if you could tell me how to remove the envelope from the screen, Thank you


This means you have a text message, look for something that says "messages" and go in and read them all. After you read them or delete them the envelope will go away, if you have problems ask someone to help you find your text messages in your phone.

The problem I described is on the Nokia n95


Hello,

Normally, the red spot on an envelope in the sent messages means that your text has not been delivered to the destination phone number the text was sent to.

In some other phones like some nokia phones, there will be an exclamation point "!" on the envelope of the failed delivery sent message.

A message may fail to be delivered due to a number of reasons, like network errors, invalid phone number or if the number is off, or the message has expired (a message expires if it is not delivered within a period of 24 hours).

You may try to resend the message that has failed to be sent.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth

Envelope Notification showing one message


If you call your service provider, they should be able to clear it, provided all messages have been read and you don't have any voicemail waiting to be heard. They can send a "0" count through their switch (processor) to your device which will in turn clear your message waiting indicator.

Any chance that the little envelope is showing received and not sent messages?
If you read or delete your messages, the unread status may go away.
