Re: icons

This is a Blackberry Curve, right?

We're going to need more description before we can help:

1. Where are the boxes located on the screen?
2. Are they there all the time or just when you're in a certain section (like email)?
3. Do you notice any pattern to the green / red switch? Like maybe you're not receiving email or data when the box is red?

The battery gauge does show red when the battery is very low.

Maybe you could take a picture and post it with your problem description?

Screen shows a battery with a red slash

This could mean a few things. Here are the different ways to try to fix it:

1. Charge your battery for at least an hour, preferably overnight. If that doesn't get rid of the red slash, continue down this list...

2. Try a fully-charged battery from another phone. Either borrow a battery from someone or go to a local store to try one. If the red slash goes away, your battery is defective. If you have had your Blackberry for less than a year, your service provider should replace it at no cost. The number for warranty service is: 1-800-801-1101.

3. Try your battery in another phone. Again, if your battery does not work in the other phone, your battery is defective. If your battery does work in the other phone, you have a software issue.

You need to download the latest version for your device. You can get that either from your service provider's web site or from Blackberry (

Save the folder to your desktop, double click it to install it your computer - be patient - it can take a while.

After you have downloaded the software to your desktop, connect your blackberry. Go into the Desktop Manager on your computer and use the program called Application Loader to install the new software on your Blackberry. Make sure that, when you see the "Advanced" box, you choose that option. Make sure you check both boxes to remove all current installed software.

4. Finally, if reloading the software does not work, likely your Blackberry is defective. You should call your service provider and ask that it be replaced (Note: call them even if you are out of the warranty period; if you are a good customer, they will often replace your phone anyway).

Hope that helps.

Samsung black jack cell phone

There should be layouts available (i.e. AT&T Default, Large Font, Windows Simple, Windows Default....etc.). It changes the way the icons are arranged on the home screen.

While charging my O2 atom exec, the LED (Flash light) does not glow red ?

I have the same problem. What I did several time is to actually shut down the phone, remove the battery and leave it like that for several hours (3 to 4 hours). Then, I put the battery back in the phone, and it would charge again. However, due to the long time with no battery, the phone's clock would be reset to January 2007.

I found no other work around right now. However, I have to do this more and more often, almost once a week ...
